We are in the midst of an unprecedented threat brought on by the novel Coronavirus pandemic.  I am writing to let you know that Navigato & Battin, LLP remains ready to assist our clients and our friends during this challenging time.

Like you, we are closely monitoring developments related to the coronavirus outbreak and the recommendations and directives coming from various governmental and health agencies including the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization.  With our network infrastructure, all of our attorneys have the ability to work remotely. For the time being, most of our attorneys will be working from home; however, clients should notice very little difference in the delivery of our legal and consulting services.  Of course, we are available for telephone conferences as usual.  Where available, we will be utilizing telephonic court appearances and video depositions.

Many of our clients are employers and this is an unprecedented and uncertain time for you.  We are available to advise employers on your obligations and your options during the Coronavirus outbreak.  There are many difficult and interrelated legal issues, from termination/layoff, to leaves of absence, to workplace safety compliance.  We are currently preparing an article to try to address some of the bigger and more pressing legal issues and provide you some basic guidance.  However, please call us with any questions about your particular situation.

We will get through this.  Please take care of yourselves and each other.
