The COVID-19 pandemic has put our society and economy under extreme duress. During these difficult times, it is important to work together, share information and best practices.
Loans & Leases under Covid-19
The pandemic has brought with it a raft of new, situation-specific rules and regulations globally and in Hungary. For most companies, almost all contracts will be affected, perhaps none more so than loans and leases. How are businesses to navigate the current legal landscape?
Join Baker McKenzie Partners Benedek Kovács and József Vági for a discussion about the legal and practical issues to look out for in lease and loan agreements over the coming weeks - the opportunities, challenges, and potential solutions to keep in mind.
The speakers will be:
