Coronavirus information

As we all work together to move toward safely reopening our economy while containing the spread of COVID-19, we want to assure you that we are closely monitoring the news and developments regarding the virus and its possible implications to our clients and our lawyers and staff.

We have reopened our Boston, Chicago and Burlington offices, but with a limited staff to provide a healthy and safe work environment. We have made certain modifications to our offices, obtained PPE and other sanitation supplies, and adopted a comprehensive reopening and operating plan. All of our attorneys and staff continue to have the option to operate on a remote basis across our geographic platform. You can be assured that all of our attorneys will continue to be able to handle remotely our clients’ legal needs, but will now have the added benefit of utilizing, as needed, our office facilities and staff.

We will post updates as this very fluid situation changes.

Please know that we are doing everything we can to reduce the risk of exposure and prevent the spread of the virus amongst our clients, lawyers and staff by following the latest recommendations from local health officials and the CDC.

Thank you for your continuing support,
