On May 8, Legalink held a second online Panel Presentation on Covid-19. The panel, which counted with over 30 participants, was moderated by Markus Bauer (Germany) and included panel members Paulo Câmara (Portugal), Mats Hellström (Sweden), Raj Navaratnam (Malaysia), Eugenia Lomakina (Russia), Danie Pretorius (South Africa), Tom Davis (USA, New York), Siddhartha Kumar (India) and Thomas Felsberg (Brazil) who shared their valuable views on the experience of six weeks of lockdown; the effect of the lockdown on their law firms and the economic impact of Corona. Eugenia Lomakina, International Desk Coordinator, represented INTELLECT at the Panel and shared information on COVID-related measures taken in Russia.
For over six last weeks, in most parts of the world, lockdown or other containment measures have been in effect. However, lawyers still continue to stay in contact with their clients helping them to cope in this complicated situation.
Since the first days of the pandemic, Legalink started to collect and update information on the measures related to COVID-19 in various jurisdictions. Now a large part of the information is publicly available on Legalink website. Exchange of the information with colleagues from other countries helps lawyers to better understand the tendencies of the law in this unpredictable field.
