Update: Fillmore Riley's Response to COVID-19

Protecting the health and safety of our team, clients and community is Fillmore Riley’s top priority. As the number of cases of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) increased, Fillmore Riley took proactive measures and advised all lawyers to work remotely, which greatly reduced the number of people working in the office.

With the recent escalation of the pandemic, we made the decision to take even greater measures, including implementing technological solutions that enable the vast majority of our team to work remotely. Effective March 23, 2020, we will commence office operations with a small team working onsite to handle daily functions. Protocols, such as vigilant sanitization, are in place to protect our employees.

Maintaining Client Service

During this unprecedented time, we recognize that some of our clients’ needs have changed and we are committed to providing timely legal advice. All of our lawyers and most of their legal assistants have the technology to work remotely. Our lawyers will continue to be responsive to your emails and phone calls. The only change you may notice is that there will be no in-person meetings.

COVID-19 Pandemic Resources

Fillmore Riley LLP has created a COVID-19 Pandemic Resources hub to provide you with topical legal information. Our multidisciplinary team offers insights on issues facing employers, business insurance, and other emerging topics that will help provide you with clarity in these uncertain times.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to your contact lawyer with any questions. We are committed to assisting during this turbulent time.

Please take care and stay safe.
