Coronavirus legal updates - Ireland and Northern Ireland

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.

We are monitoring developments locally in Ireland and Northern Ireland and drawing on the learnings of our global offices for the benefit of our clients and wider community.

We have centralised our know-how and are sharing best practice with our clients. This page contains many of our legal briefings relating to issues in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.

We are taking many queries from clients on issues ranging from HR policies, force majeure in supply chain contracts, data protection, 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 clientsandmarkets@eversheds-sutherland.ie, and your query will be directed to the relevant teams locally or globally.

Read about Eversheds Sutherland’s own response to the outbreak.
