New Service for Clients During Coronavirus Epidemic – Other Services Available Normally

The coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemic has escalated into a pandemic and is giving companies serious pause for thought on a number of fronts, including employment law, contract and supply chain risks and force majeure situations.

In order to provide rapid help to our clients in dealing with the epidemic, we have put together a new service, the C&S Coronavirus Task Force, which consists of our experts in coronavirus issues in numerous fields of law.

Our clients can contact their responsible lawyers or contact the Corona Task Force experts directly through coronataskforce@castren.fi.


We will continue to provide our services as normal despite the epidemic. We have taken the following steps to account for the current circumstances:

• We can work with clients remotely, e.g. arrange remote meetings. We have instructed our personnel to work remotely as much as possible.

• We have postponed our client events and seminars. We will notify everyone who has registered for our events directly.

• We respectfully ask that everyone visiting our offices takes care of their hand hygiene and avoids shaking hands.

We are monitoring the situation closely and are complying with the latest authority instructions.

We have several blog posts on our website about the possible impacts of the coronavirus on business from the perspective of Finnish law.
