As a valued client, we want to assure you that Bradley is proactively monitoring the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and following recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), and local public health authorities. While we recognize that the situation is rapidly changing day to day, the firm has adopted a number of precautions to help mitigate the public health risk based on guidance from these organizations. Our priority remains the well-being of our clients and colleagues, as well as providing exceptional client service.
As part of our comprehensive response plan, Bradley has taken the following steps:
- The firm has created a Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) webpage to address specific concerns and questions related to the impact of the coronavirus. This page includes some commonly asked questions and answers, attorney-authored content on how the coronavirus may impact you or your business, and links to helpful online resources.
- The firm has established a task force and designated a response team to review our business continuity plan and assess the potential for any impact on office operations. Our business continuity plan identifies key personnel and systems needed for executing essential business functions in the event of a critical situation.
- As part of this plan, we have confirmed that our attorneys and staff have remote work capabilities to prevent a disruption in work. We have limited in-office activity to essential personnel.
- The firm has restricted travel to all areas with a Level 2 or above travel advisory from the CDC or State Department, and we are requiring advance approval for any business travel. Please note that while we service clients globally, all of our offices are located within the domestic U.S. We are also monitoring and assessing all attorney and staff travel for work or otherwise, both domestically and abroad.
- We have implemented enhanced cleaning protocols and health and safety measures in all our offices.
- We are assessing the viability of all Bradley-hosted events for the next eight weeks.
- The firm has implemented self-isolation requirements for all personnel in the event of any symptoms of illness or potential exposure to diagnosed individuals.
As we continue to monitor the situation, please do not hesitate to contact a member of Bradley’s response team if you have any additional questions or concerns. We will continue to provide updates as necessary to help keep you informed.
