Update: Extraordinary Measures Schindhelm China

Upon expiration of the temporary decision of the City of Shanghai on January 27th, 2020, after which in the wake of the corona virus outbreak all companies in the Shanghai area were prohibited from commencing work until February 9th, 2020, 11:59 p.m., our colleagues restarted operations in Shanghai and Taicang on February 10th, 2020.

The service and support of the ongoing mandates can initially only be managed via home office. For the resumption of work on site in our offices in Shanghai and Taicang, the last measures still must be implemented in accordance with the currently applicable health regulations. In the course of the 8th calendar week, we will be available to our clients in our offices in Shanghai and Taicang. We ask all clients for their understanding in this continuing exceptional situation.

If you have any mandate-related questions or if you have any questions about the currently applicable health regulations in connection with the resumption of work in China, please do not hesitate to contact our office in Osnabrück, Dr. Bernhard Heringhaus, phone: +49 541 32 45 - 119, email: .
