Varnum attorneys Luis E. Avila and Jailah D. Emerson were named 2021 Go-To Thought Leaders for their analysis of updates to the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA). President Biden signed into law the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA), which extends and expands several provisions of the FFCRA, and Mr. Avila and Ms. Emerson helped businesses and individuals alike keep up with the implications of the slew of COVID-19 assistance legislation that was enacted and revised in the last year, including ARPA.
