Severe Weather & Natural Disasters

As the frequency and ferocity of extreme weather events and natural disasters increase, companies are facing a range of legal and regulatory issues stemming from the fallout.

Severe weather events and natural disasters—and the disruption and infrastructure damage that often follow—can lead to challenges related to insurance recovery disputes, government and regulatory investigations, consumer class actions, wrongful death and personal injury lawsuits, mass tort cases, securities litigation, and more. Implications to employee policies, tax considerations, cybersecurity issues, and bankruptcy and restructuring considerations also may arise.
