News Flash: HHS Issues Statement Removing Premarket Review Requirements for Laboratory Developed Tests (“LDTs”), Including COVID-19 LDTs
Verrill, August 2020

What happened? On August 19, 2020, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (“HHS”) issued a single paragraph statement rescinding U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) guidance documents concerning premarket review of Laboratory Developed Tests (“LDTs”) and eliminating the requirement for premarket review of LDTs, in the absence of notice-and-comment rulemaking.

PPP Forgiveness Planning Scenarios
Verrill, August 2020

How to use this article: You already know that the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) is highly complex, with intertwining conditions, exceptions, and definitions that defy simple explanation.

We present nine different scenarios commonly found within the PPP recipient pool and offer an intentionally over-simplified discussion of when and how you should apply for forgiveness. Our goal here is to provide a useful starting point for you to plan the forgiveness application for your particular company and situation...

Does a Property Insurance Policy Still Provide Coverage if a Business does not Reopen after the COVID-19 Stay At Home Orders are lifted?
Verrill, June 2020

Most property insurance policies in today’s market include a provision that causes coverage to lapse if the property is vacant (as defined by the policy) for a period in excess of 30 days. Fortunately, insurers have generally not enforced this limitation while businesses were under the COVID-19 orders that precluded them from being open to the public. As a result, in most situations, the property policies continued to provide coverage even if the buildings were arguably vacant. If you are not certain about your insurer’s stance, and closure orders remain in place, it makes sense to be in touch with your agent or insurer to confirm that your coverage is secure...
