Welcome to our news hub

The development of the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak continues to create contractual and other legal challenges, which are in many ways unprecedented. Whilst the outbreak originated in China, its impact is being felt globally. In response, we have coordinated across our offices to ensure that we centralize our know-how and are sharing best practice with our clients.
