The Faegre Drinker Intellectual Property Team is committed to our clients and contacts during this difficult time. It was impossible to listen to the news of the last week and be unaffected as many ordinary things we take for granted changed so quickly. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, Faegre Drinker has asked our colleagues to work remotely until at least March 31, 2020. Like so many of you, our priority is protecting the health and safety of our colleagues, clients, visitors and their loved ones. We also want to do our part to contain the pandemic.
We may be virtual, but we are not sitting still. Being designed for clients means being agile and adapting rapidly to the changing environment and new client needs. Despite the cautionary closure of our offices on Tuesday, March 10, we remained open for business with over 2,700 attorneys, consultants, professionals, operations and administrative staff around the globe working from the firm’s virtual network, serving our clients and collaborating with one another. We are pleased to report that the launch of Faegre Drinker has been a success, and all of the extensive planning over the past many months has positioned us to support you in the weeks and months ahead, to meet these challenges together.
Our Intellectual Property attorneys, consultants and professionals are just a phone call or email away, and we are embracing other technologies to stay connected in a virtual world. We will continue to bring you fresh, practical solutions. Our COVID-19 task force advises clients by the hour on updated guidance, regulations and best practices related to this pandemic. Our IP team, too, is ready for this challenge and will stand by your side through whatever lies ahead. We will keep you informed via our TCAM Today℠ blog, the Faegre Drinker web site and social media.
We wish you and your loved ones good health during this time of uncertainty and thank you for your continued trust.
