In response to the developing COVID-19 global pandemic and guidance from public health authorities and local governments, Barnes & Thornburg has temporarily transitioned all personnel to work remotely. The top priority is to protect the health and safety of valued team members, their families and our clients and communities, and to ensure that client service remains seamless and uninterrupted.
During this time, all legal and business support functions remain in operation uninterrupted. There is a comprehensive business continuity plan and sophisticated technology infrastructure that enable employees to work remotely while protecting client information and maintaining rigorous security measures. Lawyers are readily available by email, telephone or videoconferencing to meet client needs.
Barnes & Thornburg continues to monitor the situation closely and will make necessary adjustments as new developments unfold. Their COVID-19 Response Team meets daily to monitor the evolving situation and they have implemented many initiatives, including actions identified by federal and state agencies.
