The Corona Crisis – Time for new creativity, for poetry and for inventions?

First of all, we wish you all the best, and that you get through the crisis well, first and foremost keeping your health.
To protect our team’s health and to safely maintain our law firm operative without interruption, we have adopted a bunch of measures, for example a major part of our staff is working from home. In particular as we have been implementing paperless office operation for years, we are able to carry on providing our input with unvarying efficiency and professionality. Of course we are also offering meetings via video-conference. Just contact us by phone or by email.  

Not many positive news has come up recently. We are told that “modernity is speed” by Thomas Eriksen but at the moment the world has come to a stop as if hit by magic – a sudden halt for all and every one of us, an end to conferences, meetings, to running, talking, communicating as well as multi-tasking – maybe a time to find what we have been in need of for a long time before: periods of calm and seclusion both for our finding our psychic balance and for developing new creative visions.

We will have tenable creative ideas if we do not try and force them, writes Ulrich Schnabel in his book “Muße” [Leisure]. Schnabel specifies that these ideas come up at times when we least expect them, in dreams, during walks, when going for a run or looking at our garden. This is how quite a lot of our great inventors arrived at their findings, for example Isaac Newton, who developed his Law of Universal Gravitation in his own orchard.

We have the hope, for all our clients and for all their teams, that You will not have to spend the so-called Corona crisis in worry and fear but will also be able to use this time as a resource for further developments and ideas, and will thus emerge from the present crisis provided with fresh innovation and power.

We wish you luck! Stay healthy!
