COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Resources

Clark Hill has instituted a number of procedures across all of our 25 offices
We have urged all attorneys, paralegals, and operational employees to work remotely in order to continue to prioritize the health and safety of our people, clients, and contacts.  For those instances where in-office staffing is needed for critical functions, we have implemented a social distancing strategy. Our offices are staffed with only those personnel needed to ensure the continuity of necessary and critical work functions.  We continue to be responsive to our clients using remote technologies and to take all necessary and appropriate steps in this dynamic and challenging situation.  

 

The outbreak of COVID-19 has affected all levels of society. To help provide perspective and education on the outbreak, Clark Hill attorneys have produced several pieces of thought leadership to assist clients and colleagues through this difficult and rapidly-changing time. From education to employment and insurance implications, our attorneys have offered advice on a wide range of topics related to coronavirus.

Our Government and Regulatory Affairs team will bring you a regular digest of updates from Washington, DC and state governments, and attorneys in our various practices will provide critical analysis and reports from the front lines.
