To Our Clients and Colleagues,

Like all businesses, schools, health care providers and governments in the world, we are closely monitoring the rapidly evolving concerns regarding the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in our respective communities.  The situation is changing rapidly and is likely to continue to change in the days, weeks and months ahead.  The COVID-19 pandemic has been challenging for everyone, changing day-to-day life in unprecedented ways.

As we seek to safeguard the health of our families and communities while also continuing to provide uninterrupted, top quality, legal services to our clients, we recognize that temporary adjustments to the way we work are necessary.  In order to slow the spread of the virus, global health authorities have recommended “social distancing.”  Accordingly, we have implemented a temporary work-from-home protocol for our lawyers and staff.  While our offices remain open, we have strongly encouraged our lawyers and staff to work from home, and our robust information technology and communication systems will facilitate seamless service to our clients.  Whether we are working in the office or remotely, we remain committed to providing superior client service.

Our firm stands ready to advise clients on how to best approach issues raised by this public health crisis.  We have created a Coronavirus (COVID-19) Resource Center on our website, featuring a multi-disciplinary task force to address our clients’ concerns.

We will also be providing regular communications to our clients and friends addressing the many issues outlined at our Resource Center.  If you have any questions or concerns arising from the COVID-19 situation, please contact your relationship partner or any of the partners listed at our Resource Center.

Our thoughts are with those currently impacted directly by the coronavirus.  We hope that you remain safe and healthy, and we thank you for your trust as we all work through this uncertain and unsettling period.
