Mutual empathy must be shown for the need to protect against infection. In the waiting area, it is therefore requested that a minimum distance be maintained and it is recommended that a medical mouth/nose covering be worn in case of crowding.

In addition, legal advice can be given at any time from Monday to Friday between 9:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. by e-mail or telephone. However, please note that the legal advisors also have business appointments and are therefore not always available by telephone. We ask for your understanding in this matter.
