How is Metier Law Firm managing through COVID-19?
We are monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation closely and are working to ensure we meet the needs of our clients as well as provide for the health of our team. While many businesses are closing their doors temporarily, catastrophic injuries are still occurring due to the negligence of others and people still need our help working through these life-altering events.
Balancing the high level of personal dedication our team of attorneys and paralegals provides with the safety of our clients is our top priority. To ensure we achieve this balance while meeting our clients’ needs, we have put in place a continuity plan for our law firm to continue to work in teams on a daily basis and methods to safely meet with clients. Some steps include:
- Expanding our resources to allow virtual face-to-face meetings, document reviews on mobile devices and obtain electronic signatures with new and current clients. This ensures the safety of our clients still recovering in hospitals and those most susceptible to COVID-19.
- Moving employees to work from home in a thoughtful, choreographed manner. This ensures our teams are able to focus on investigating and building cases without any health risk.
- Using the latest technology to connect to our office phone lines and emails during normal business hours. This ensures our communication with clients, co-counsel and our teams is seamless and unencumbered.
- Requesting that all physical letters and documents be sent to our office electronically instead. This will ensure faster responses, lowered impact on the environment and reducing our team members exposure.
As the situation evolves, know we will be investing in our capabilities, equipment and support while reacting in real-time to make sure our clients’ case and safety needs are met completely.
