Minimizing Legal Impact of Coronavirus for your Organization

March 18, 2020

To help clients address legal questions sparked by the Coronavirus (COVID-19), Foster Swift has established a cross-disciplinary Coronavirus Task Force. Members of this task force are already helping clients assess and address business and operational issues presented by the virus. 

If your business, municipality or organization is facing potential legal issues caused by the spreading of the virus, we strongly encourage you to contact your Foster Swift attorney or one of the designated Coronavirus Task Force Coordinators: 

Mid-Michigan - John Mashni | 517.371.8257 |​​​​​​

Southeast Michigan - Matthew Fedor | 248.785.4734 |

West & Northern Michigan - Laura Genovich | 616.726.2238 |

The virus and public concern are escalating rapidly; prompt analysis by experienced legal counsel can help you minimize risk and attain the best outcome possible.  

Foster Swift’s offices are currently open and we are following best practices as provided by the Centers for Disease Control. However, should it become necessary to close our offices, our attorneys and staff are equipped and trained so we can continue to provide service virtually.
