Jenner & Block Partners Gabriel K. Gillett, Jeremy M. Creelan and Jan A. Larson will discuss legal and practical considerations around business interruption claims during the COVID-19 pandemic, focusing on what they mean for the restaurant and foodservice industry.  They will share insights on the following topics: key policy provisions and exclusions and how they may vary across policies; critical legal questions related to insurance coverage, including whether physical loss or damage is required, a virus exclusion applies, and civil authority coverage is triggered; the current state of litigation, including pending federal and state class actions across the country and applications to consolidate and coordinate the cases through a federal multidistrict litigation; and important practical considerations in deciding what restaurants and other companies should do.  This one-hour webinar will be held on May 13 at 4 pm Eastern.
