Client Advisory Regarding COVID-19 Legal Issues in China

March 2020
Region: Asia Pacific

The number of PRC residents ill with the coronavirus is trending down and the PRC economy is again starting up. Nonetheless, companies in China are confronting challenges as they do that, both operational and legal.

We have built our China Practice over the past 25 years around our representation of manufacturing companies, and we have, in recent weeks, answered questions from clients as they cope with measures that have been taken to contain the virus and resulting supply chain issues. This document provides guidance on several such topics, including employment matters, force majeure in commercial agreements, data privacy issues with respect to health and other personal information collected from employees, and certain tax incentive and compliance concerns. We hope this will be helpful to you as you resume operations in China. Stay well.
