A note about coronavirus (COVID-19)
To our valued clients:
Just like many of you and your organizations, Bricker & Eckler is closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic. Not only are we internally doing everything we can to keep our employees and clients safe, but we are also taking measures to ensure that our clients have the information and the reliable counsel they need to make fast and effective decisions.
Bricker’s office locations are open for business as usual. Even before this occurrence, our team was highly capable of working remotely, and we will be doing even more of that in the coming weeks. Specifically, in response to this pandemic, we have prepared with:
Remote access plans to prevent disruptions in client services and allow easy access to lawyers and staff
A contingency plan for in-person events
Video call/meeting hosting capabilities
Safety precautions for office visitors
Even if we had to close an office location to outsiders, we plan to continuously provide you with high levels of uninterrupted service.
Additionally, our attorneys and staff have been working diligently over the past few weeks to provide you with helpful resources that will be continuously updated as circumstances change, such as email and online publications, webinars and a constantly-growing online resource center you can access here.
Also note that Bricker employees are being encouraged to play an active role in preventing the spread of the coronavirus, requiring behavior changes related to social distancing, including the following:
Refraining from shaking hands
Only holding face-to-face meetings and gatherings in which participants are able to be four to six feet apart from one another
Using teleconference and video conference options when proper social distancing cannot be achieved
Our thoughts are with all those impacted and with the health care professionals on the front lines treating them. We wish everyone well as we navigate this global health challenge together.
