A tsunami of COVID-19 litigation is already starting to form, and it’s up to Congress, the administration, state legislatures, and governors to shelter businesses from the storm and enable the economy to recover.

  • Common law, including negligence, public nuisance, contract claims, and product liability;
  • Labor and employment;
  • The False Claims Act;
  • Data privacy, including virtual meetings, health information, and big data;
  • Financial services;
  • Consumer claims, including the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, false advertising and deceptive marketing, and price gouging; and
  • Securities

The research also looks at early trial lawyer advertising trends and third party litigation funding activity in the context of COVID-19.
