We know that corona virus (COVID-19) outbreak has affected law firms across the country. Many enterprises have closed their offices, required staff to work from home in order to limit crowded places where the virus is most likely to spread. Some several State agencies (for example, the National Office of Intellectual Property of Vietnam is restricting the in-person contact with examiners) and many courts have stopped activities that require face-to-face contact in close distance.
At Apolat Legal, we are carefully observing the current corona virus outbreak. We have been proactively implementing measures and developing plans to prioritize the health and well-being of our members, clients and partners, while ensuring firm continuity in order to meet our clients’ needs throughout this unpredictable period.
