We can be sure that the legal consequences of the pandemic will extend over many years. How extensive the effects will be – this is as unpredictable as the scale of damage caused by the plague.

Nevertheless, it is worth realizing today that just as the social system is unprepared for a pandemic, so is the legal system. Usually this means that disputes go to the courts and are – taking into account the quality of the Polish judiciary – the subject of many years of devastating disputes, provided, of course, that companies can afford to conduct them.

We are therefore convinced that the legal effects of a pandemic must be considered in every possible aspect as early as possible.
