As a business owner whose sole place of business is in New York City, an epicenter of the COVID-19 pandemic, our law firm has experienced first-hand the impact of COVID-19 on daily life.

Like many businesses in New York, and elsewhere, we have seen our operations disrupted by shelter-in-place orders, clients being required to shut their brick and mortar stores, and the disruption of supply chains worldwide. While at first glance, many think of COVID-19 merely as a disruptor, in fact, its impact goes well beyond disrupting life (and business) as we know it. It also has been an accelerator of readily available, yet rarely used technologies that support social distancing, as well as, an inspiration for innovation as we continue to adapt to this new reality. This article discusses some of the impacts that COVID-19 has had on business operations as a disruptor, accelerator, and spark for innovation both in the short-term and long-term.
