Since the beginning of the Covid crisis, the Lamont administration has been on the front lines, developing policies to protect public health and our state’s economic well-being, often facing challenging and unprecedented decisions. By being willing to make difficult decisions, Connecticut has been lauded for flattening the curve and currently has one of the lowest transmission rates in the country.
We welcomed Paul Mounds, Jr., Governor Lamont’s Chief of Staff, for an interactive discussion about the administration’s priorities as we move into the final months of 2020. Paul talked about such issues as the continuation of executive powers, extension of executive orders to November 9, strategies to return the state to economic health, and what to expect in the months ahead.
Following Paul’s presentation, attorneys from our Business Organizations and Finance
and Labor and Employment
practices addressed some of the most common concerns we’re hearing from clients about returning to work, restoring operations and planning in an uncertain environment. We also identified some new opportunities that are emerging from the response to the pandemic and discussed the status of various federal and state programs designed to address the needs of businesses and individuals during the crisis. Finally, we provided a quick update on the outlook for the reopening of the court system, and what to expect if you’re involved in a business dispute.
