Learning Objectives:

  1. Review the impact COVID-19 has had on parties currently in contract

  2. Explore new negotiation strategies and techniques that can be used in the COVID-19 era

  3. Examine new technology solutions to employ in real estate transactions including virtual notarization of documents and virtual closings
