Dear Clients and Friends,
This update is to provide you with resources and information to help you address your legal needs during the COVID-19 outbreak and to assure you that we have the secure structure and capacity in place to continue to serve those needs.
Multidisciplinary Counsel: We are hearing from our clients with a multitude of questions related to the short and long-term impact of the virus on their business and personal lives. To address your questions and concerns, we have a multidisciplinary team of lawyers and professional staff to provide you with thorough and timely responses to your questions concerning COVID-19 and its impact on you or your business. To access that expertise, you can contact any of our lawyers who will get you to the right person to most effectively assist you.
Advisory page/resources: We have built a Coronavirus COVID-19 Resource Center on our firm’s website that we update almost daily. I invite you to bookmark this page and return for new information.
Crisis management: At Carmody Torrance Sandak & Hennessey, our team of lawyers has helped guide clients through prior economic crises and natural disasters and we are prepared to do so again as we face the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic. I am happy to report that our attorneys and staff are working together to support each other and you as one firm, and we continue to serve our clients every day. To help slow the spread of the virus, we have instituted a work from home policy for all lawyers and professional staff, leaving offices only with the minimal staffing needed to support continued operations. We have invested in the development of a secure, high performance technology infrastructure that allows our workforce to work remotely. This has made our conversion to a remote work environment something we accomplished quickly and seamlessly. We will continue to provide you with the same level of exceptional service and counsel that you have always expected of us.
We are committed to our employees, our clients and the communities where we work and live. We are mindful of the growing number of people who are impacted directly by the coronavirus. Our sincerest hope is that you remain safe and healthy. As always, we thank you for your trust as we all work through this challenging period. If there is anything I can do for you, please do not hesitate to contact me. We will get through this together.
