Client Updates

Baker Botts tax lawyers are carefully monitoring governmental developments on tax issues related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19). We have set up a Crisis Response Group, compiled an accompanying online resource kit, and are providing daily social media updates on the rapidly evolving situation.

In addition to tax issues, the firm is also advising clients on a number of fronts related to the outbreak, including on issues related to crisis response, business interruption, cybersecurity/data privacy, impact on SEC disclosures for public companies, impact on force majeure clauses, employee/human resources issues and leadership succession.

Our development of these resources draws on the experience of our global, cross-practice and multi-disciplinary groups of attorneys.
