Over the past two weeks, Paul Frank + Collins has monitored and planned the firm’s response to the quickly evolving coronavirus pandemic. We remain focused and committed to serving our clients while at the same time mitigating the risk to our clients, attorneys, staff, and community.
As history and experts teach us, “social distancing” is effective in slowing the spread of a contagious virus, and lessen the risk of overwhelming the healthcare system and accelerating the rate of infection. Knowing this, and in response to the current spread of the virus in the United States, including at least one presumptive positive case in the Burlington, Vermont area, we have activated our contingency plan to allow most of our attorneys and staff to continue to serve our clients while working remotely. At the present time, our physical office remains open and some personnel will be in the office working on firm business during regular business hours. All attorneys can be reached through normal channels, including the firm’s main telephone number (802-658-2311) or directly through email. Paul Frank + Collins remains fully able to meet our clients’ needs.
We believe proactive steps like these can help protect everyone, assist our community in its efforts to prevent the spread of the virus, and allow Paul Frank + Collins to continue to provide world-class legal services to local, regional, and international clients.
