WE ARE DEEPLY SORRY FOR ALL PEOPLE AFFECTED BY THE CORONAVIRUS. WE SUFFER WITH OUR FRIENDS, BUSINESS PARTNERS AND MEMBERS OF THE LEGAL COMMUNITY WHO ARE IN FEAR AND IN NEED OF MEDICAL TREATMENT, AND WE WISH THEM ALL A COMPLETE AND SPEEDY RECOVERY. WE ARE DEEPLY GRATEFUL TO ALL MEMBERS OF OUR MEDICAL, RESPONDER AND SCIENTIFIC COMMUNITIES WHO PROVIDE THEIR STEADY, PROFESSIONAL AND DEDICATED SUPPORT TO OUR LARGER COMMUNITIES AND TO US.
Moreover, we are pained by the negative effects on the businesses of our clients and friends who need help in these troubled times to assess the legal effects of cancellations (or holding) of events, supply chain disruptions, loss of continuous work force, price gouging, liquidity, travel plans, delivery failures, and employment-related advice or strategic planning for and negotiate or force positive results in any legal dispute or corporate crisis that may arise. We have been trained for, and have currently studied the plethora of legal questions attached, such as force major and attribution of responsibility, and are ready to provide help where it is needed, to ease the negative effects of this horrible, pandemic, scourge.
For any questions in that respect please contact us through our managing partner, Tim Pfister, our head of litigation, Bettina Knoetzl, or the leader of our employment law practice, Bert Ortner. We are ready to assist on short notice with our customary laser-focused advice, just as needed.

For our own employees and their precious families, we hope that through practicing our early, cautious measures (“ZDZC Campaign”), put into place when there was but a single-digit tally of COVID-19 deaths reported in mainland China, all may stay well. We pray that the spread of the virus may soon slow down and the world’s economies recover quickly. We are dedicated to contribute as much as is within our power to do.
