March 16, 2020 communiqué

Dear all,

Given the current circumstances, the preventive measures which were enacted by the French Government and additional measures which are likely to be enacted in the near future, we wish to reaffirm our ability to remain operational as usual. Our law firm relies on a secured and high-performance information system to that effect, even if containment measures come into force.

We accordingly remain at your disposal to discuss side-effects of the current situation on your activities and businesses, particularly in relation to the “force majeure” concept.

The Department of Justice just informed us that French courts and legal proceedings will be suspended as of today for an indefinite duration, but for “essential proceedings”. We will keep you posted on the effects of such decisions on on-going proceedings.
