  • COVID-19 ("Corona Virus"), Working Remotely & Bankruptcy Law

    First and foremost, to those reading this blog entry, I hope that you and yours are well.

    In the wake of the global outbreak of COVID-19 (the "Corona Virus") and associated restrictions on travel and assembly, I thought it pertinent to pen this brief note.

    In addition to personal concerns associated with the global pandemic and sensible precautions being taken to prevent the spread of the Corona Virus, business considerations impacting the economy at nearly every level (local, national and international) - from the consumption of/ demand for energy, to the production of goods (including basic necessities) and disruption of supply chains and wholesale distribution of finished products, to price volatility, to debt maintenance, to personnel matters, to government policy/ action and the suspension of some governmental services, to the accessibility of medical care, to the availability of professional services and more - will vex companies great and small and give rise to a variety of legal questions.

    (As an aside, current events have prompted me to explore the possibility of opening a US federal bankruptcy practice area.)

    Pandemics are paralyzing.  But, human beings are a resilient species and we will endure.

    Many companies, including law firms, are exploring "telework" (or, working remotely) to mitigate the disruption of their capabilities that sensible precautions designed to halt the spread of the Corona Virus have produced.

    If there are upsides to every crisis, one of them in the instant matter may be an accelerated trend toward working remotely.  Communications technologies are increasingly amazing, improving exponentially in recent times.  The use of them can accentuate several efficiencies.

    I have made use of these technologies for quite a while, working remotely from the United States with the Jeddah, Saudi Arabia (KSA) office, as well as other service providers in the United Arab Emirates and elsewhere, for years.  Keeping close touch with clients, associates and third parties via email, Skype and the like has been standard operating procedure under my practice's business model.

    While precautions taken to prevent the spread of the Corona Virus and the associated work-arounds do not yet seem to have generated a rise in the price of tech stocks, I can say one thing with confidence:   we're still here (wherever "here" is) for you.  The Jeddah, KSA team and I have had no cause to change our interactions and the work flow is as smooth as always.  And, of course, clients and third parties can continue to avail themselves of the tech tools we employ - we've been utilizing these tools for a long time, and do not anticipate any hiccups.

    The telephone number and reception email are clearly displayed on the website, and my Skype is available upon request (I stopped bothering with a fax line some time ago).  Reach out if you think we can help - especially if your company is experiencing difficulties with contractual obligations related to doing business in Saudi Arabia.

  • April Showers Bring May Flowers

    By R. Jason Huf

    Its been quite some time since JHI's last Note or Comment, but that doesn't mean that there hasn't been anything to write about.  And, its certainly too much to write about all at once.

    With Ramadan just around the corner, should the usual business cycle associated with the Holy Month and High Summer come about, I will make maximum use of the time and write more often:


    April was a pretty busy month, inside the office and out.  Saudi Arabia's "Vision 2030" was unveiled by Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman on April 25.  JHI will provide analysis of the KSA's plan for a "post-Oil" economy, and any changes to the laws of the Kingdom resulting therefrom.  We will also continue to track legal developments elsewhere in the Gulf region.

    Also, as UN Representative for an NGO, I enjoyed the opportunity of hearing United Nations (UN) Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon speak about the UN's Sustainable Development Treaty, the Sustainable Development Goals, and what the private sector (including the Legal Community) can do to help achieve those goals.  This was followed by attending several open forums at the UN, and hosting a talk on 'Conflict Minerals' with an expert on the subject.

    I also moderated two very successful Continuing Legal Education panels, one on the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and the other an Ethics course on Attorney "Branding" for international practitioners.

    Almost forgot! In March, I had the pleasure of hosting a New York State judge who discussed the Qatari Commercial Courts after returning from his experience teaching new, young Qatari lawyers in Doha.

    More recently, after months of deliberations and conversations with colleagues and others I respect, I have come to a decision on JHI's future in the Middle East - and, beyond.

    Further details concerning our expansion of capabilities and services, as well as the other topics outlined above, will be distributed in due course.

    In the meantime, Happy Memorial Day -- enjoy the start of summer!
