How does the law firm Feinen deal with Corona / COVID-19?

Dear clients,

In the current situation, we too are aware of our social and professional responsibility towards our clients.

Of course you can still reach us by telephone or - better - by e-mail.

However, we have decided not to hold any more personal meetings in our offices in the coming weeks.

Our office is a modern and dynamic law firm with a flexible working environment.

Our team usually works from our office in Cologne. Here we manage the worldwide debt collection and customer service. Our international customer service has always been carried out via telephone and e-mail.

The recent development of the pandemic has not affected our customer service. We are accustomed to providing excellent customer service to all our customers worldwide via e-mail, telephone and WebFile system.

Our entire team is protected and now works mostly from the home office, which we have further expanded to the best and most secure technical standard.

A video conferencing system is in progress and will be available shortly.

In response to recent advice from the Robert-Koch-Institute, WHO, NHS and the government, the team has taken all recommended personal health precautions and works from home.

Fortunately, we are all used to flexible working and therefore you should not notice any change in our customer service.

Stay healthy!
