COVID-19: A Message from Mitchell Williams

Statement from Managing Director Jeff Thomas

March 16, 2020

The health, safety and well-being of all of you are foremost in our minds as we continue to closely monitor the COVID-19 outbreak. Our thoughts go out to the people who have been affected and we appreciate the efforts of our healthcare workers and government leaders who are on the front lines working to contain this coronavirus.

As this pandemic evolves, I wanted to let you know what you can expect from Mitchell Williams during this period of concern. We are committed to serving our clients and to the health, safety and welfare of our attorneys and staff. Accordingly, we have taken necessary steps to ensure that our service to clients will continue uninterrupted while implementing procedures to protect our people.

  • Our lawyers and staff are fully prepared and equipped to work remotely with the same level of security and accessibility to systems as they would from our offices. You can be confident that our availability and the business of our clients will not be compromised or interrupted in any way.

  • Consistent with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, we have taken all necessary steps to help prevent the contracting and spread of COVID-19, including measures regarding cleanliness and sanitation as well as social distancing.

  • We have initiated daily leadership and administration meetings to monitor events as they develop and assess our business and client service continuity strategies as well as develop communications to our attorneys and staff offering guidance on actions they can take to stay well and ensure the wellness of those around them.

We also know that you may experience business disruptions and unforeseen challenges. We want you to know that as your business partner we are available to help. For counsel and advice regarding the coronavirus pandemic, please contact our Firm or your primary Mitchell Williams contacts. Our Firm has established a Coronavirus (COVID-19) blog and our attorneys have created numerous client alerts, publications and other resources to assist you with issues related to COVID-19 and how it may impact your day-to-day business operations.

Most importantly, be safe and thank you for your continued trust.

Jeff Thomas, Managing Director
