Staas & Halsey LLP (S&H) continues to monitor the rapidly changing circumstances surrounding COVID-19, the illness caused by a novel coronavirus. We have taken measures to continue to provide uninterrupted service to our clients during the COVID-19 outbreak in the USA and other countries.
Beginning Monday, March 16th 2020, we implemented the S&H business continuity plan that allows our attorneys and staff to work remotely when necessary. By adopting a document management system ten years ago and going completely paperless in early 2020, the transition to remote working has been relatively smooth.
The S&H remote work system for employees uses an encrypted tunnel to provide connectivity to the S&H servers storing the S&H document and docketing management software, and access to email servers. Staas & Halsey is in compliance with the UK Data Protection Act 2018, as amended in 2019; the European Union”™s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR); and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA).
The above mentioned business continuity plan is anticipated to continue until further notice, and may be updated, including any updates taking into consideration recommendations of U.S. local and federal governments and the World Health Organization.
We continue to ask that communication to our firm be electronic, via e-mail, facsimile, portals, or similar means. If physical items need to be sent to Staas & Halsey LLP, please provide S&H prior notification and at least inform Docketing@s-n-h.com of any such anticipated delivery of physical items so that S&H can make arrangement for receipt of such physical items. If we normally send you packages of physical items, like paper copies of communication, please note that at times these may be delayed.
We have postponed all travel plans as a precaution based on the recommendation of the U.S. local and federal governments and the World Health Organization.
We send our best wishes and thoughts to everyone that have been affected by the COVID-19 virus and hope for a healthy tomorrow.
If you have any questions, please contact us at Docketing@s-n-h.com.
