This is Derek Miller, Speaking on Business. Stoel Rives is a national law firm with one of the largest business law practices in Utah. Matt Durham, a partner in the Salt Lake office, is here to tell us how Stoel Rives is continuing to support clients through the COVID crisis.


Stoel Rives has been a trusted partner to Utah businesses for nearly 30 years. We provide legal services for corporate, mergers and acquisitions, environmental and natural resources, intellectual property, commercial litigation, real estate and labor and employment.

Last year, companies around the world experienced unprecedented disruptions and uncertainties that put their business at risk. Our labor and employment group helped companies of all sizes successfully address complex issues, including maintaining workforces during the pandemic shutdown and differentiating work-from-home and in-person employees on a non-discriminatory basis. We also helped clients benefit from COVID-relief programs, such as the Cares Act and PPP loans, in addition to counseling on compliance with new Equal Pay and Family Medical Leave laws. We launched our Main Street Relief Project to provide pro bono legal help for small businesses coping with the pandemic. As companies return to in-person work and face new workplace questions, including vaccine mandates and other return-to-workplace issues, Stoel can help!


Stoel Rives created an online resource hub to provide businesses and employers with timely, practical and industry-specific legal advice related to COVID-19. Visit for more information. I’m Derek Miller with the Salt Lake Chamber, and this is Speaking on Business.
