Navigating the PREP Act Landscape



Faegre Drinker held an in-depth discussion of the Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness Act (PREP Act), how courts are interpreting the PREP Act, and the kinds of litigation emerging from the COVID-19 pandemic, led by Partners Jessica Cox and Molly Flynn and Associate Blake Angelino.
