The business impact of coronavirus - legal and tax support from Hogan Lovells in Poland

We all continue to navigate our way through the challenges arising out of COVID-19.  While these unprecedented events unfold, we wanted to take this moment to reach out to you, and assure that as a client of Hogan Lovells you have the ongoing support of a strong and resilient law firm

We are ready to help you with any legal issues that you may be facing right now, in particular those arising from the threat of the COVID-19.

We have implemented the procedures recommended by WHO, EU and Polish authorities, introducing among others hygiene policies recommendations, enabling all colleagues to work remotely, forbidding business travel, cancelling non-essential direct meetings with clients. But your business cannot stop, and we have the necessary means to support its continuity.
 
The legal landscape is changing fast. New regulations are coming in rapidly. Whatever legal risks currently loom in the distance for your organization, we encourage you to get in touch with us. The Warsaw office of Hogan Lovells has already launched a dedicated team to deal with the most affected areas of business.
 
The first "hot topics" have already bubbled up to the surface.

  •     Can we test our workforce against COVID-19?

  •     Can we hold our board meetings via Skype?  

  •     Can we prolong contract deadlines as a result of the pandemic?

  •     Should we publish dedicated report on current situation under MAR regime?  

This is just a sample of what our legal team has been crunching these past days.
 
We are here for you.  And we can help.  In addition to getting in touch with your usual contact persons at Hogan Lovells, all of our LEGAL HELP-DESKS are also available for you to contact directly:
