A Message to Our Clients and Friends Amid the Coronavirus Outbreak

Dear Clients and Friends,

We at Pierce Atwood hope that you, your families and colleagues are safe and well.  The ongoing COVID-19 outbreak continues to reshape all of our lives and our models of doing business. The practical business impacts and consequences of this public health crisis are significant and rapidly evolving.

Our message is a simple one – we are here to help you and your businesses navigate the evolving challenges presented by this extraordinary situation, and we will continue to provide the level of representation and responsiveness our clients expect and need.  Since the coronavirus outbreak began, we have been guiding and advising our clients with respect to protecting the health and safety of their people and addressing the myriad business challenges and needs that emerge as this situation unfolds.  We have issued Employment and Immigration alerts (Beyond Hand Washing: What Employers Should be Doing Now in Response to COVID-19 and I-9s & Other Immigration Considerations During the Coronavirus Pandemic) to guide our clients and friends, and we stand ready to assist and support you in any way.

While our own business routines have been impacted by both the fast-changing situation and our commitment to protecting the health and safety of our Pierce Atwood team, our commitment and ability to provide the highest level of client service remain unchanged.  Through our business continuity planning and investment in technology, our lawyers and other professionals are able to work with equal effectiveness from our offices or remotely, and we have in place the systems to provide seamless client service and support.

We thank you for the trust you place in our firm.
