Deutsch Kerrigan's Response to COVID-19 and Our Continued Commitment to Client Service

Dear Clients and Friends:
With the uncertainties surrounding the outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19), Deutsch Kerrigan faces the same obstacles as many of you, and we continue to adapt to those emerging challenges as we remain open and operating at full strength to serve your needs. 
Our first priority remains the health and safety of our clients, colleagues and community. For the past two weeks, we have been actively monitoring the outbreak and evaluating how it may affect our clients, staff and families. We have implemented preventative measures in line with the recommendations from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization as well as state and local authorities. We are focused on providing a safe environment in our offices, and have implemented our Business Continuation Plan, which includes limiting non-essential business travel, and providing the flexibility for our attorneys to work remotely as necessary and appropriate. 
We are monitoring the COVID-19 situation daily. In the event of an unexpected office closure, your DK legal team and documents will remain available and accessible just as they have been in the past. We are equipped with secure and sophisticated technological resources to allow seamless remote working as needed. As a 94 year old law firm that weathered Hurricane Katrina and many other difficult situations, we are well positioned to continue to meet your legal needs without interruption while protecting the health and safety of our employees and their families throughout this period of uncertainty.
Finally, our thoughts and hearts go out to the people who have been affected by this unprecedented event and we appreciate the healthcare workers, local communities and governments who are working to contain this coronavirus. 
We will continue to update you concerning any significant developments in our firm’s plans, and look forward to when this chapter is behind us all.
Wash your hands!!
