Shearman & Sterling announced today the launch of the COVID-19 Legislation Tool, an online resource that compiles the latest information on COVID-19 legislation around the world. The Tool aims to help lawyers and companies stay up-to-date on thousands of legislative responses, both locally and around the world.
The firm’s COVID-19 Legislation Tool produces instant results which can be summarized in a customizable PDF report. With a clickable global map, users can select the geographic area they want to explore, and the Tool displays corresponding legislation summaries that are available to view and print. Access the Global COVID-19 Legislation Tool here.
As individuals, companies, and governments continue to grapple with new challenges resulting from the ongoing pandemic, the need for clear guidance is more important than ever. Our lawyers are closely monitoring the evolving situation and are committed to providing clients with the latest regulatory updates.
The COVID-19 Legislation Tool is the latest advancement in a series of COVID-19 related initiatives and resources that the firm has developed. In March, the firm launched a COVID-19 Resource Center for clients, which includes a library of publications, webcasts and other information. The firm also launched a COVID-19 Task Force to offer clients access to an interdisciplinary, multijurisdictional team of lawyers that is laser-focused on the business and legal impact of the pandemic. To address the challenges this crisis brings to the communities where we live and work, we launched a firm-wide COVID-19 relief effort focused on supporting individuals, families, nonprofits and small businesses through volunteerism, awareness-building, legal advice and fundraising.
