At Snell & Wilmer, our top priority is to ensure the health and safety of our staff, attorneys, clients, vendors, and communities, while continuing to provide the highest quality legal services in a timely and efficient manner. To this end, in response to COVID-19, we have implemented key aspects of a pandemic contingency plan. This includes: communicating with all personnel to provide information and updates as necessary; reviewing roles and responsibilities of staff and identifying backup resources; assessing our workplaces and personnel; and implementing a policy for Firm personnel with details on virus symptoms and prevention, administrative controls, guidance on when personnel should not report to the office, guidelines on travel restrictions, details for personnel on working remotely and maintaining security standards, and alternate methods of conducting business to minimize risk.
During any health emergency, Snell & Wilmer also understands the vital importance of informing our clients, and others, of the steps we are taking to ensure quality and operations control, and the actions we will take if we are affected by the spread of COVID-19. Key areas of focus include, but are not limited to, the following:
We appreciate that this is a rapidly evolving crisis where there is significant uncertainty and where facts can quickly change. The Firm’s executive management team is monitoring developments, including federal, state, and local guidance, and is in regular communication with attorneys and staff to assess and address changing circumstances.
