Rajah & Tann Regional Round-Up
your snapshot of key legal developments in Asia
Issue 1 - Q1 2020 (Special Edition on COVID-19)


The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a deep impact across the globe, affecting all sectors of society. It has fundamentally changed the way we work, the way we live and the way we function.

As governments work to overcome the pandemic and its consequences, policies and measures have been implemented at a swift rate. In this quarterly issue of our Regional Round-Up, we present a special COVID-19 Edition to provide our clients with an overview of the control and support measures put in place in the South-East Asia region and in China. This issue also consolidates Rajah & Tann Asia's key Client Updates to date on the legal and regulatory developments in response to the pandemic in the respective jurisdictions.

The COVID-19 situation continues to change and develop on a daily basis, and Rajah & Tann Asia seeks to keep our clients informed on the latest updates. Visit our COVID-19 Resource Centre for the latest publications from our lawyers across the region on common issues and legal implications brought about by COVID-19. For specific inquiries, please reach out to your relationship partner or send an email to our COVID-19 Legal Team.

Please note that whilst the information in this Update is correct to the best of our knowledge and belief at the time of writing, it is only intended to provide a general guide to the subject matter and should not be treated as a substitute for specific professional advice.
