Pro bono (free of charge) legal advice in times of COVID-19
The global spread of the Coronavirus causes huge uncertainty. Many governments have issued a large number of new regulations relating to COVID-19. In addition, measures taken by governments, authorities, private companies and individuals to deal with the Coronavirus, are creating many difficulties for SMEs, NGOs and their employees. In parts of the economy, business activities have come to an almost complete standstill, in other parts the restrictions imposed heavily affect business conduct, creating massive uncertainty for the economy as a whole but also for each individual company and its employees.
