Looking Forward

The COVID-19 pandemic will have a significant impact on litigation in the next year, including disputes stemming from failed business combinations, closed businesses, and breached commercial contracts. Commercial real estate delinquencies might produce a wave of commercial mortgage-backed securities litigation, reminiscent of the residential mortgage-backed securities litigation following the financial crisis. And business interruptions could
lead to increased litigation concerning force majeure and similar contractual provisions.
