COVID-19 has had an impact on virtually every industry in the country, but none more so than on health care. In this episode, Jay talks with John Carney, chair of Porter Wright’s Health Care Practice and former Ohio state representative, about the changes that COVID-19 has wrought on health care and on some changes the industry is likely to experience in the future.
COVID-19 has spurred all sorts of legislation. In this episode, Jay discusses some examples of COVID-19-related legislation with John Carney, Chair of Porter Wright’s Health Care Practice and former three-term Ohio state representative. The discussion includes Ohio’s recently-enacted qualified immunity legislation (HB 606) as well as some thoughts about future laws that may be on the horizon on the federal level.

In the first of a three-part series about antitrust and consumer protection during COVID-19, host Jay Levine talks to Porter Wright attorney Allen Carter about how companies can collaborate during the current crisis, what business owners should do to protect themselves and how the government is helping and what it is watching out for.
The next podcast in this series will discuss price gouging and hoarding, how federal and state governments protect consumers and what companies need to know to protect their business.
