The outbreak of the coronavirus is posing a challenge to many businesses in mainland China and in Hong Kong, not least in terms of the impact on their ongoing and future commercial contracts.

In order to aid businesses during these turbulent times, we have developed a pack to discuss some of the common contractual issues that are facing businesses right now.

We hope that this pack provides helpful support.
