Swiss Institute of IP suspends most deadlines until 20 April 2020

The Swiss Institute of Intellectual Property has announced to suspend most of the deadlines with an end date between 21 March 2020 and 19 April 2020 (statutory deadlines and deadlines set by the Institute, including payment deadlines). In other words, deadlines set by the Institute that would end in that period will end on 20 April 2020. This was based on the decision of the Federal Council to extend court holidays in civil and administrative proceedings.
