Central Time (US and Canada)

CLE credit will be offered where available.

Class Description

The effects of COVID-19 on the retail industry are profound and unprecedented. While it is critical for retailers to work through operational and tactical considerations to re-open (or not re-open) retail store locations locally and nationally, the post-COVID landscape is also an opportunity to re-examine who and where you are as a business, particularly when it comes to considering factors such as bankruptcies and how that affects your pathways to acquiring title insurance. This webinar will examine the potential post-COVID hurdles to acquiring title insurance for retailers confronted with bankruptcies and other litigation and how to overcome them.
