The UK retail sector, and the High Street in particular, was in the doldrums before COVID-19. However, the last eight weeks have seen a sudden 80% drop in footfall and a previously unmatched decline in retail sales, as shops have closed and customers have been practically confined to shopping online. As the UK begins to exit lockdown, there are significant question marks over the viability of many High Street businesses and the value and use of commercial property.
This webinar will focus on the some of the most pressing legal issues with which landlords and tenants will have to grapple as they return to the High Street and try to ride out the remainder of 2020.
Simon Edwards, Niraj Modha, and Gethin Thomas of 39 Essex Chambers will explore the following in a live webinar format on 19 May 2020.
