Kathryn Strong ,

Insightful look at COVID-19's many impacts

Thoughtful commentary on the business and legal impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, which are many. Commentary on workforce management and supply chain disruption in the global context was particularly well thought out, as you might expect from a global firm. Well done.
