M&A and Capital Markets Law: What Needs to be Considered? COVID-19 Poses Major Challenges for (Cross-Border) M&A Transactions and Capital Market Deals
DORDA, March 2020

Introduction COVID-19 poses great challenges, especially for cross-border M&A transactions and capital market deals. In the last five years or so, the M&A sector has seen a strong seller's market in which sellers have been able to generate high selling prices and enforce contractual arrangements in their favour. This will likely change rapidly now. Government imposed quarantines and travel restrictions already have a negative impact on due diligence reviews, contract negotiations as well as signings and closings of transaction...

What are the Effects of COVID-19 and the Measures Recently Taken by the Federal Government on Litigation Proceedings?
DORDA, March 2020

CIVIL LITIGATION What are the effects of COVID-19 and the measures recently taken by the federal government on litigation proceedings? Will the civil courts remain in operation? As of 16 March 2020, a regulation amending the rules of procedure for courts of first and second instance will come into force. This regulation provides for a restriction of court services limited to the strict minimum. In the implementation decree, the Federal Ministry of Justice clarified that the courts will remain in operation only to the extent necessary. Oral hearings should only be held if absolutely required to maintain the administration of justice...

What are the Legal Consequences of the Official Measures to Curb the Spread of COVID-19 for Entrepreneurs for their Commercial Contracts? Who is Liable for Delivery Failures?
DORDA, March 2020

Are delivery obligations between businesses still to be fulfilled? In principle, commercial contracts and the rights and obligations contained therein remain legally binding, despite the official measures taken to prevent the spreading of COVID-19. However, in connection with travel contracts, the Austrian Supreme Court qualified the outbreak of the infectious disease SARS as a force majeure event that made it unreasonable to perform the contract. Due to the similarity of events, this categorization may also be applied to the current situation...

The second part sets out links to current public subsidy offers. 1.  Q&A Information is of a general nature and, therefore, cannot replace specific advice in individual cases.

Corporate Law: What Effects Does the Current Situation Have On Planned Shareholders' Meetings? Can General Meetings Be Held? Are There Any Delays in Company Registrations?
DORDA, March 2020

When should we hold our annual shareholders' meeting this year? The shareholders' meeting of a stock corporation must be held each year within eight months as of the end of the financial year. Therefore, if the financial year corresponds to the calendar year, there is time until the end of August. If possible, we would therefore recommend holding the annual shareholders' meeting a bit later this year in order to be better prepared. We would like to hold the annual shareholders' meeting in the coming weeks...
