Coronavirus legal update



The development of the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak continues to create contractual and other legal challenges which are in many ways unprecedented.

The impact of the virus is being felt globally, and in response, we have co-ordinated across our own global offices to ensure that we centralise our know-how and are sharing best practice with our clients. We have created a Coronavirus Legal Hub which contains some of our legal briefings created to date. Click here to visit our Coronavirus Legal Hub.

We are taking many queries from clients on issues ranging from HR policies, force majeure in supply chain contracts, insurance cover, delay/termination issues in contracts, funding and regulatory challenges. Should you require support on legal issues facing your business, please either contact your Eversheds Sutherland key contacts, or email coronavirus@eversheds-sutherland.com, and your query will be directed to the relevant local teams around our global network.
