A business guide to lockdown


A leading south west law firm has produced a free business guide offering advice on what businesses should be considering to ensure they make it through and beyond the second national lockdown.

Compiled by solicitors at Stephens Scown LLP, the information-rich guide covers five key areas, ranging from what business owners need to consider to keep operations running during the second and any subsequent lockdowns, to the positive steps you can take to protect your business for future growth.

The five chapters cover a broad range of topics to support business resilience at this time: including the impact of the coronavirus on your people, IP and technology challenges and opportunities, Corporate law considerations, possible disputes and property opportunities.

Verity Slater, who heads up Stephens Scown’s Covid business support group, said: “With advice ranging from how to ensure your business is operating in a Covid-safe manner for your people and your customers, to considering your options around employment to ensure the long-term viability of the business, we wanted to offer businesses this essential guide to help navigate their way through these difficult times.”
