Covid-19: Litigation Practice Continues Safely

20 August 2020

Commentary

Grimshaw & Co continues to prioritise providing our clients, staff, and trusted experts utmost support while monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely and adapting safety protocols as necessary.

Following the Government’s COVID-19 Alert Level 3 announcement on Tuesday, 11 August, our firm closed our offices. All staff are now working remotely and are well equipped to provide legal advice and support to all our clients.

Supporting our clients

At a time where uncertainty is rife, we are committed to giving our clients, both in New Zealand and abroad, peace of mind and excellent legal advice they can rely on.

We are committed to acting in the best interest of our clients and delivering top notch service. We continue to be available to speak to any clients either via email, phone or teleconference.

We also continue to progress all current files we have to meet key court deadlines and timetables. Like the nature of litigation, we continue to think on our feet, quickly adapt, and decisively act to ensure mediations and teleconferences are carried out as planned even from our home offices. 

If you have any questions or need legal advice, do not hesitate to contact any of our solicitors or our general manager, Elizabeth Bennie, to discuss how we may support you.

Ongoing safety protocols in our offices

Our firm’s approach has always been to adhere to the Government and Ministry of Health’s advice, act swiftly, and communicate clearly.

We ask all clients, staff and experts to stay home if you are sick and download the NZ COVID Tracer app. Once we are allowed back to our offices, we have a business QR code, which everyone must check in to as they enter. We also ask everyone who come into our office to observe the usual cleanliness measures such as washing your hands for at least 20 seconds and coughing to your elbows.

We can only get through this if we work together and be kind to one another.

We look forward to hearing from you, answering your questions, and working together.
