Philipp Strasser and Jan Philipp Meyer discuss Supreme Court Decision: No coverage under business interruption insurance for prohibition of access under COVID-19-MG
Philipp Strasser and Jan Philipp Meyer discuss a recently published decision of the Austrian Supreme Court in the legal journal ecolex, which has received much attention not only in Austria but also in neighbouring countries. In this decision, the Supreme Court had to assess possible coverage claims under a dread disease insurance policy or, more specifically, the question of whether such claims exist also for business restrictions based not on the Law on Epidemics (the “Epidemiegesetz”), but on a special law passed after the pandemic outbreak of COVID 19 (the “COVID-19-Maßnahmengesetz“). In this decision, the Supreme Court has now taken a position on numerous questions that were the subject of discussions in academia and have also been treated inconsistently by the Austrian courts.

Social responsibility: Vavrovsky Heine Marth advises Revolve Circular on global circular economy initiative
A resource efficient economy instead of a "take-make-waste" model. Conserving finite resources, avoiding waste – and recognizing that all waste is, in fact, a secondary raw material. This is what the circular economy is all about: it’s an umbrella term for a variety of models, all of which challenge an outdated linear economy. But what and how can governments, countries, municipalities, companies and consumers contribute? How do scientists, policy-makers, managers, law-makers and others perceive the increasingly popular paradigm? Which action imperatives of a circular economy do different stakeholders consider to be part of it, and what is their respective circular vision?
In the first-ever global survey on the perceptions of circularity, Revolve Circular, an Austrian non-profit organization, and the Copernicus Institute of Sustainable Development at Utrecht University seek to analyze how different stakeholders perceive the circular economy and their role in it.
We are particularly proud to support this pioneering, important initiative pro bono, thereby making our contribution to taking one further step towards a resource-efficient and innovative economy.
