COVID-19

Kochanski & Partners

Due to concerns arising from the recent outbreak of coronavirus (SARS-Cov-2), Kochański & Partners law firm has established a dedicated response team, available for consultation 24 hours a day.

As a result of the rapid spread of the virus, companies will face challenges in numerous areas. On the one hand, employers should consider taking action for the protection of their employees. On the other, business relationships may be affected due to factors including disruptions in the global supply chain.

Our lawyers will provide you with legal support in all aspects of your economic activity that are or may be affected by the outbreak.

In particular, we provide legal support in the following areas:

  • trade contracts,
  • business relationships,
  • employment matters,
  • cooperation with authorities,
  • possible ‘worse case’ scenarios and legal consequences.

We encourage you to familiarise yourselves with our experts’ publications.

Information, legislation, advice on the COVID-19 pandemic.
