Covid-19 (Coronavirus)


Back to COVID-19: The new normal?

The Covid-19/Coronavirus pandemic crisis has acquired an unprecedented magnitude, affecting every aspect of our lives and activities. Any legal questions raised must be resolved quickly and the solutions adopted must provide individuals and businesses the security they need.

Our firm is dedicating the full array of its professionals' expertise to providing the best solutions to all these questions.

The current situation raises countless questions. What are the conditions of the partial activity regime and what measures should be taken with regard to employees? How can an entrepreneur pay his suppliers or the rent on his business premises if his customers can no longer come to receive their purchases? Can a company gather its partners online without the risk of being disputed? How can a business use or preserve its liquid assets when the company's activities have been suspended? Under what conditions can a company benefit from a deferral of taxes and charges? How will proceedings and litigation initiated before or during the crisis evolve?

Our entire legal, social and tax system is strained. Known mechanisms ranging from force majeure to the application of pre-existing contractual clauses are the first to be evoked. Various emergency provisions will then be urgently adopted, the meaning and scope of which one must understand in order to benefit from their protective measures. Everyone must adapt to a constantly changing legal environment on a daily basis.

This page gives you full access to the various contents (articles, videos and other information) created by the firm's lawyers to respond to the crisis and the legal questions it raises. We have classified this content so as to respond to your questions and your needs as quickly as possible. We are and will of course remain fully available to respond to your requests.
