"Law in the time of corona" is an array of dialogues on legal topics stemming from the global crisis brought by the coronavirus epidemic. The discussions approach relevant issues for the Romanian business environment and the legal industry, seeking to clarify hot topics of the crisis. The podcasts' hosts are lawyers and tax consultants of the firm, with special guests being invited to join the stream, as needed. #1 "How is Law changing?" is a discussion on the crucial and potentially irreversible mutations undergone by the legal world these days. Legal enactments swiftly pop up on various matters, and will continue to do so. Behind them, people's view on the legislators' role or on the balance between state power and the fundamental human rights and freedoms could shift substantially. In such times, what is the role of the legal advisor, which are the coordinates of the struggle for balance in a world marked by deep uncertainties, what assurances could the legal world bring to the business environment? Guest: Florentin Tuca, Managing Partner Host: Dan Cristea, Partner Duration: 21:45 min Date released: 27 March 2020 Language: Romanian

The podcasts' hosts are lawyers and tax consultants of the firm, with special guests being invited to join the stream, as needed. #2 "What is and what is not a liability exemption cause?" is a discussion about parties' liability under a contract in extraordinary circumstances such as an epidemic or pandemic. The business environment is now invaded by a number of terms that have not raised too many concerns in the past, but which will probably keep the headline for a long time: force majeure, fortuitous case, liability exemption cause, hardship, contract adjustment. There will be plenty of time to analyse the incidence of these notions in practice, but first of all we need to have an order, a structure when talking about these principles. It becomes relevant for business people (and not only) to know first what they are, what is the reasoning behind, how to distinguish and what is the delineation between the various institutions that remove the responsibility for the execution of an obligation already assumed. For this reason, the second episode of our podcast is a discussion with Cornel Popa, founding Partner, on "What is and what is not a liability exemption cause?"
