As the global coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic continues to unfold, the Swiss government has in sum taken the following measures: closed all schools, forbidden all public and private events, closed all restaurants, bars, shops (except food markets, pharmacies and banks) and all entertainment and leisure institutions. They have strongly recommended that everyone stays at home unless working in homeoffice is not possible, they need to go to a doctor's appointment, grocery shopping or help someone in need.
We would like to share information about the steps Prager Dreifuss has taken to align the government's efforts to delay the outbreak and to protect the health and safety of our clients, firm colleagues and their families while maintaining business continuity.
We will continue to support our clients' needs and navigate them through these challenging times and help them achieve their objectives.
