The COVID-19 pandemic has affected all countries in Latin America. Administrative measures that limit or restrict economic activity have been adopted in most countries. Only some activities or industries have been able to continue operating, while the rest of the companies are waiting for the restrictions to be lifted in order to resume their activities. There is every reason to believe that such thing will only happen gradually, and in compliance with strict health measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19 transmission.
Baker McKenzie Administrative and Public Law team in Latin America, has developed a guide that presents a regional outlook of the legal and administrative measures enacted or announced by the governments for the companies to comply with what is called the “new normal”. The “new normal” means big challenges, but at the same time, opportunities. Our purpose is to collaborate so that companies can cope with this new regulatory scenario.
