Economic Fluctuations: Are You Ready? Read our Guide

After more than two turbulent years of a pandemic, global geopolitical conflicts, a serious economic downturn followed by a series of record rebounds in public and private financial markets, the business community has had to adapt its risk management repeatedly through these exceptional situations. In this context, companies face and will continue to face major challenges.

To help you easily adapt your business practices, better understand the legal consequences of the economic situation on your business and make informed decisions, Fasken has developed the guide “Preparing your Business for Economic Fluctuations” (PDF, 2,87 mb), which answers your main questions. This guide explains key elements to consider in your strategic planning or in the ordinary course of your business.
