Sarah Hewitt, chair of Schnader’s Corporate Practice Group, has published a new Client Alert entitled, “COVID-19: Governor’s Order about Annual Shareholder Meetings in New York.” It reads in part:

Most states have now issued stay at home orders and are mandating social distancing through April 30 and possibly beyond in light of the COVID-19 pandemic facing our country. As April and May are popular times of year for shareholder meetings, New York’s Governor Cuomo issued an executive order No. 202.8 on March 20, 2020 that has the effect of permitting corporations incorporated in New York to hold virtual-only shareholder meetings immediately and through April 19, 2020.
