Reed Smith’s GC Roundtable Series

One year after the first COVID lockdowns we are finally passing the turning point in the pandemic – 38 million people in the UK and 180 million in the United States have received their first vaccinations: a strongly positive development in the overall trajectory of the pandemic, which in turn is generating a more positive economic outlook for many. As consumers return to the shops and the possibility of a return for many to the workplace emerges, business leaders are now addressing how best to emerge from lockdown, and how behaviour has changed in the wake of the outbreak.

We are pleased to share with you this thought leadership report, which summarises the key insights, trends, and forecasts that our clients discussed at our recent virtual roundtable event with a focus on the UK market. The report will help to better inform in-house legal and business teams, and internal stakeholders on current and emerging business and legal trends.

Some key themes which emerged during the conversation include:

  • COVID-19: one year on – what have we learned?
  • The bigger picture – where do we go from here?
  • The “new Brexit” debate: remote working v working in the office
  • The emerging trends – ESG, technology and digital transformation
