COVID-19 – The impact of the health crisis on legal and procedural deadlines

The health crisis we are going through has a significant and inevitable impact on legal deadlines, the non-observance of which can be sanctioned by various mechanisms (nullity, foreclosures, statute of limitation…), as well as procedural deadlines, whether they relate to ongoing proceedings or to the introduction of new proceedings.

In order to adapt to the health challenges and containment measures while preserving everyone’s rights and the continuation of the essential activity of jurisdictions, many emercency measures have recently been taken, the most important of which is the emergency law n°2020-290 of March 23rd, 2020 and the related ordinances.

In conjunction with these measures, the courts have issued various announcements relating to their own organisation.

Diane Dumas, partner in charge of the Litigation and Arbitration Department, and Guillaume Goetz-Charlier, invite you to find hereafter our latest newsletter in respect to the impact of the health crisis on legal and procedural deadlines.
