The first half of 2020 has been a very challenging time for the capital markets. With a global pandemic arising � the likes of which have not been seen in more than 100 years � U.S. economic activity has largely collapsed, and unemployment has risen to levels not seen since the Great Depression.
Join our CLE Webinar on Thursday, August 13th as we look at 2020 in the context of past bear markets, whether a comparison to the 1918 influenza pandemic is relevant to today, and which sectors and industries have been hardest hit by the economic disruption. The webinar will also explore the impact of COVID-19 on potential capital market-related litigation and regulatory and enforcement areas to keep an eye on.
