Your Partner in Times of Crisis


7 April 2020

The Singapore Government recently announced new measures to act as “circuit breakers” to control and mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 virus. The measures include the shutdown of all work places between 7 April and 4 May 2020, with prescribed exceptions.

Eversheds Harry Elias is in full support of our Government’s initiatives. At the same time, we remain fully committed to being there for our clients during these difficult times. In this regard, we are pleased to report that Eversheds Harry Elias remain ready to serve your needs and is fully operational on the digital realm. All teams are telecommuting. Your relationship Partner and working teams can be readily reached via the phone and email, while “face to face” discussions can be arranged via our videoconferencing facilities.

As a full serviced firm, we are taking many queries from clients on issues such as urgent commercial transactions affected by the crisis measures as well as human resources and employment related policies, force majeure in supply chain contracts, insurance cover, delay/termination issues in contracts, funding and regulatory challenges. We are also able to represent clients in all levels of the Singapore Courts to attend to urgent matters such as injunctions and applications under the Protection from Harassment Act.

We are here to support you. Sitting strategically in the global hub which is Singapore, Eversheds Harry Elias can manage your issues wherever the focal point may be in the world, with our Eversheds Sutherland network of offices in 69 cities and more.

As a commitment that we are there for you during these challenging times, we will maintain an open video comms crisis line for an hour (until further notice) on every Tuesday and Thursday SGT 1000 starting 9 April 2020. This would be a quick way for you to reach out to us to have a “face to face” virtual meeting on any legal issues you may face arising from the COVID-19 disruptions.
