The aftermath of the Corona virus has created uncertainty among companies and raised many questions in areas such as labour, finance, capital markets, data protection and contract law, M&A, export control, and healthcare as well as ongoing litigation and tax proceedings. Noerr, a leading European commercial law firm, has been providing answers since the outbreak with its digital Corona Crisis Centre.

The Noerr CCC provides:

  • A webinar portal, through which more than 30 Corona specialist webinars have been held to date.
  • A bilingual executive summary section where Corona news articles are clearly summarised.
  • A personalised newsletter for regular push information on current topics - tailored to legal fields and industries.

If a subscriber's main interests change, they can reselect their personal news with just one click in the admin settings.

Noerr draws a positive interim balance:

  • around 250% increase in website visitors compared to the previous year (more than 330,000 visitors to the Corona Crisis Centre alone in just a few weeks).
  • more than 3,800 clients / interested parties in the live webinars.
  • more than 1,200 new contacts / leads through Corona-related market communications.

"The need for legal information has increased extremely overnight due to the pandemic and has been consistently high over the last few months. In 2016, we had already laid the foundation for contemporary, digital market communication with our new website and built a customisable newsletter, our own webinar portal and much more. This put us in the best possible position digitally and enabled us to react independently on an ad hoc basis with our Corona Crisis Centre," explains Michael Kaupp, Digital Marketing Manager at Noerr.
