Our Response to COVID-19

Steven Zakem

Dear clients and friends,

Consistent with the advice of local and national health experts, the majority of lawyers and staff at Aird & Berlis are currently working remotely. We have made significant technological investments to ensure that we are able to provide seamless service during this challenging time. Please communicate with your relationship partner or firm contact as you usually would on existing or new matters. While we expect that most business will be conducted remotely for the foreseeable future, our offices remain open in order to maintain essential business functions and to support our clients if needed.

We have taken these steps because the health and safety of our lawyers, staff and clients remains our top priority during this period of uncertainty surrounding COVID-19. Working remotely is one way in which we can do our part during this pandemic.

COVID-19 is forcing law firms and clients alike to adopt new ways of providing services and doing business. Please let me or your relationship partner know if we can assist in any way as you make your own adjustments.

We will continue to monitor, evaluate and respond to the situation as it evolves, and will take all necessary precautions to safeguard our lawyers, staff, clients and the communities in which we live and work.

On behalf of the entire firm, I wish you all the best during this difficult time.

Steven Zakem
Managing Partner
