A Message from the Firm Regarding COVID-19

March 16, 2020

To our clients, alumni, and friends of the firm:

As the global outbreak of COVID-19 grows, we continue to monitor and follow official government and health agency guidance, taking all necessary precautions to protect our people, clients, and the communities where we live and work. We recognize that you are also having to make adjustments to your business that require great fortitude and sacrifice.

We have established a task force spanning multiple practices, who are serving as a central point for knowledge, learnings, and key insights from around the firm at this unprecedented time. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if we can assist in any way.

We ‎have a robust technology infrastructure that enables our lawyers and professional staff to provide world class service to our clients both in and out of the office. Our lawyers have had the option for remote working for many years and our professional staff have now been enabled to do the same. We are and will continue to provide the same seamless, uninterrupted, and secure service which you expect.

We look forward to a return to normalcy. But, for now, please stay safe and healthy.

Chair and Managing Partner
