As a follow-up to an AmLaw Litigation Daily column posted one year ago, litigation & enforcement co-chair Gregg Weiner discusses how the litigation landscape has been shaped by the pandemic. AmLaw noted that Gregg correctly predicted that buyers would be invoking material adverse effect clauses in attempts to terminate merger deals. “I think the fragmented nature of COVID litigation has resulted because the pandemic is so unique in recent history and, as I said last year, there are no obvious villains or bad actors responsible for the situation,” Gregg said in the article. “Courts tend to stretch the law and get creative when there’s a villain and a victim, and that dynamic is just missing here.”
