Our approach to COVID 19

Dear Clients, Alumni and Friends

As the global coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic continues to unfold, the Swiss government has in sum taken the following measures: closed all schools, forbidden all public and private events, closed all restaurants, bars, shops (except food markets, pharmacies and banks) and all entertainment and leisure institutions. They have strongly recommended that everyone stays at home unless working in homeoffice is not possible, they need to go to a doctor’s appointment, grocery shopping or help someone in need.

We would like to share information about the steps Prager Dreifuss has taken to align the government’s efforts to delay the outbreak and to protect the health and safety of our clients, firm colleagues and their families while maintaining business continuity.

We will continue to support our clients‘ needs and navigate them through these challenging times and help them achieve their objectives.

Most employees work remotely from home. Our technical infrastructure is well prepared and everyone can continue working while converting to audio- or videoconferencing. The confidentiality, integrity and availability of all data is at all times secured by way of encription of all our devices.

Our reception and telephone desk is in operation every working day. In order to protect the health of our clients and employees, no meetings are held at our offices.

We will continue to monitor the situation closely and adapt our measures as necessary. We are confident to get through this exceptional situation with united forces and look forward to continuing working with and for you.

It is in such times that we are reminded that besides being your business partner, we are all members of the broader community and as such have a role to play in this evolving situation and we at Prager Dreifuss will do our part.

Stay safe and healthy!
