Cleary Breakfast Call

April 23, 2020


Virtual Shareholder Meetings During and After the COVID-19 Outbreak

Decree-Law No. 18/2020 temporarily facilitates the holding of shareholder meetings without the physical attendance of shareholders, in order to mitigate health risks related to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak. Companies are allowed to hold virtual-only shareholder meetings through telecommunication means or, in the case of listed companies, by appointing a designated representative to whom shareholders may grant proxies.

In our seminar, we discussed with Angelo Busani, Federico Cenzi Venezze, and Edoardo Ghio the legal implications of these provisions and their application during and after the COVID-19 outbreak.

The seminar is part of the new Cleary Breakfast Call series.
