We’re here for you, especially when a crisis like this one is having such a far-reaching impact. Our teams of experts continually track the relevant provisions of COVID-19 legislation. We monitor a range of topics, such as the ability of companies to act in a crisis, the suspension of the obligation to file for insolvency, the introduction of short-time work, and other regulatory changes. And we’ll be happy to serve as your contact for any additional questions.

Even if you have already started looking at your future plans beyond the crisis, you can rely on us to be a knowledgeable contact for all your legal questions. We’re here for you at any time.
