In order to protect the wellbeing of our staff, clients and the community, Kott Gunning Lawyers have successfully transitioned to a predominantly remote working model, with meetings taking place remotely via conference calls and secure online platforms. We continue have full capacity to offer our clients the legal support we have offered throughout our 100-year history of supporting Western Australian businesses.
The future of many businesses is looking uncertain at this present time and the impact of the changes due to COVID-19 are significant.
Kott Gunning have assembled a specialised COVID-19 Response Team from the various practice areas across the firm who have come together to assist clients as they work through the potential ramifications of COVID-19 on their businesses, their people and their stakeholders.
We are seeing increased discussions about health and safety and employee relations; receiving large requests for construction and other contract review and property lease enquiries, from both tenants and owners and many private clients are wanting to consider their estate planning. The regulatory environment for businesses and corporations is rapidly changing. We are seeing fundamental changes, challenges and increased activity in commercial litigation and disputes, workers’ compensation, insurance, restructuring and insolvency, planning and infrastructure law.
Kott Gunning are available to work closely with our clients to provide pragmatic advice, sensible guidance and insightful perspectives.
Further information related to each of these topics will be made available on our website, through our Legal Updates and on our LinkedIn page.
