Hopkins & Carley’s top priority is the safety and well-being of our people, clients, and the communities in which we live and work. Please be assured that while we are committed to the health and safety of our professionals and those around us, we also are keenly focused on continued service to our clients. During these unusual circumstances, please know that we will continue to deliver the timely and excellent service you are accustomed to from Hopkins & Carley.
Here are some of the steps we have implemented:
- Technology to work from anywhere. As of today, and until further notice, most of our employees will not be in the office. Our technology ensures that all of our professionals can securely access the Hopkins & Carley network remotely. This means that you can communicate with your Hopkins & Carley contacts even if they are not physically in the office.
- Telephonic or video meetings. We have the technology to facilitate video or telephonic conference meetings in lieu of in-office meetings. If you have a previously scheduled appointment in our office in the next few weeks, we will be in touch to arrange for a telephonic or video meeting, or to reschedule the meeting.
- Conferences and events. We are working to cancel or reschedule many upcoming Hopkins & Carley seminars, conferences, and events that put large numbers of people in the same room.
- Our commitment. Most important, we know that during trying times, proactive, two-way communication is critical, along with creative solutions. If we need to make adjustments in our engagement with you, please let us know.
Helping our clients navigate the business challenges presented by this situation is also a top priority. In each of our practice groups, our lawyers are actively engaged with clients on topics ranging from privacy to litigation to providing employment advice and counsel in connection with necessary changes in the workplace. We are available to you, and we are happy to help work through the implications and challenges your business is facing as we work together as a country to halt the spread of COVID-19.
Our focus, dedication, and support are unwavering as we navigate these uncertain times together. We hope you and your loved ones remain safe and healthy. Please reach out to your Hopkins & Carley contacts if you have any questions.
