In light of the continuing uncertainty about the resolution of the eurozone crisis, we have put together a nonexhaustive list of practical "Dos and Don’ts" for our clients to consider. The legal issues are explored in greater depth in our contingency planning briefing and previous publications.

Slaughter and May’s eurozone crisis and sovereign debt team consists of a group of practitioners across different practice areas. The team is considering the issues as part of a network of lawyers from the leading independent firms in major jurisdictions.

As mentioned in our contingency planning briefing, there is no "one size fits all" approach to contingency planning. The precise scope will depend on the type of business and the relevant group’s exposure to high risk jurisdictions and/ or counterparties. It should be proportionate and focussed on material risks and pressure points. Our list of suggested Dos and Don’ts should be considered with this mind.
