TEMPORARY COVID-19 MEASURES
Due to the rapid spread of the COVID-19 virus, far-reaching safety measures have been in force in Belgium since 18 March 2020 12.00 P.M. They will last at least until 5 April 2020. We were already equipped to work remotely, but in order to protect the health of our customers and employees, KEGELS & Co has taken the following additional measures:
The entire KEGELS & Co team works remotely to ensure the follow-up of your files, which were already entirely digital.
We can still be reached via the same coordinates, by phone and by e-mail.
One lawyer and one staff member remain at the Antwerp office during opening hours so that urgent reports, summonses and subpoenas can be dealt with immediately. In doing so, a strict policy of "social distancing" is applied and respected.
We also offer a videoconferencing system via the Microsoft Teams Platform for meetings and document sharing.
Our lawyers remain able to attend any hearing that is held, in accordance with applicable procedures.
To date, only hearings in emergency proceedings are maintained until further notice. Other hearings are automatically postponed or settled in writing.
These measures can be rapidly adapted to new developments. For the most recent version, please visit this website.
