A Cornish law firm has produced a free guide to help businesses coming out of coronavirus lockdown.

Stephens Scown LLP’s latest covid-19 guide addresses issues including how to handle employees returning from furlough, business restructuring, managing cashflow and reputation management.

“None of us have experienced anything like this before, and for business owners the amount they have to think about can feel overwhelming. Our legal advisors have been busy helping clients with advice for practical ways forward during this challenging time.

"This free guide pulls a lot of that information together,” said Richard Baker, Stephens Scown’s managing partner.

Stephens Scown’s free Coming Out of Lockdown Guide includes advice from its corporate, employment, real estate, intellectual property and dispute resolution teams.

The guides and regular updates on legal changes due to coronavirus are available on the Covid-19 insights hub on the firm’s website.

Stephens Scown was the first large law firm in the UK to become employee owned. It has ranked in the Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For for the last six years.
