|To Our Friends and Business Partners:
We know that the global spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to impact local communities in a way that is creating concern and uncertainty at home, at work, and in the economy. The situation is developing by the hour and we are frequently monitoring updates from the Center for Disease Control (“CDC”), World Health Organization (“WHO”), local agencies (“Local Agencies”) and Courts to stay abreast of all changes.
At this time, our office remains open. We have the ability and structure to promptly activate our Business Continuity Plan and Pandemic Response Plan and take the necessary steps to ensure that we provide uninterrupted service to our clients while providing a healthy and safe environment for our attorneys, staff and their families. Our IT infrastructure ensures that we can operate remotely without compromising the quality of legal services or the security that you expect from us. We will review and update our plan as the situation progresses.
We understand that the situation will have implications for your business and we are here to help during these challenging times. We will therefore continue to keep you apprised of any closures or changes that might affect your case(s) and, as always, we hold your trust in highest regard should you need advice or assistance pertaining to any matters resulting from this unprecedented situation.
At this time, all non-emergency civil matters in Cook County, including foreclosures and evictions, have been stayed until April 15, 2020. We are monitoring Illinois, Wisconsin, Iowa, and Indiana courts for further updates and are in the process of moving all court dates and hearings to the earliest dates available.
We wish you, your family, and your colleagues continued health and safety.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact one of the undersigned partners.
