The presence of COVID­19 is yielding unprecedented challenges to Czech businesses. Faced with mandatory closures, impacts on supply chains, travel restrictions and significant uncertainty, organizations may suffer significant financial consequences as a result of COVID­19 and the crisis measures.

In our webinar we will cover the potential legal consequences and explore critical questions on the recovery of business interruption losses in reaction to the pandemic situation.

We will present how to navigate the financial recovery process.
