The Coronavirus Pandemic has created the largest health crisis the world has seen in any of our lifetimes. The critical steps needed to protect the health of everyone has in turn created turmoil for nearly every organisation and family including businesses, public authorities, charities and individuals.

To support our clients in these challenging times, Geldards has convened specialist teams to advise on the rapidly developing legal solutions and opportunities to help you navigate the crisis. Each team is regularly providing legal updates, guides, online briefings and webinars as well as extended complementary consultations to answer the immediate questions you may have.

Our aim is simple – to do everything possible to help our clients survive this challenging period. We are in this together.

As many businesses face a fight to survive, we have put together teams of specialists to advise on the rapidly changing legal landscape. Our specialists in employment, commercial contracts, rent & property, restructuring and disputes are here to provide the critical advice needed to help you survive.

Public Authorities are at the centre of the fight to overcome COVID-19. As well as maintaining the vital services needed in society, they play a pivotal role in maintaining the economic wellbeing of our regions. Our leading public sector teams have been at the forefront of interpreting the sometimes bewildering pace and scope of legal developments and are here to support.
