Governments worldwide are currently implementing unprecedented restrictions on individuals, businesses and other entities in an effort to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, and are also planning a variety of fiscal and monetary stimulus measures in an effort to try to offset the economic damage likely to result from these health and safety motivated restrictions. However, given the extent of the currently implemented limitations and those restrictions which may yet be implemented, numerous commentators are anticipating significant economic disruption which may last long after the restrictions have been modified and ultimately lifted. Accordingly, a significant number of companies, even comparably healthy companies, may have to consider taking steps to restructure their obligations, and many companies are already reaching out to counsel for advice on how to address the impact to their businesses of these restrictions.
