We are currently taking the following measures in response to the coronavirus outbreak:
Attorneys and other employees are required to wear masks in the office and take thorough measures to prevent infections, such as disinfecting hands and fingers.
【Working from home arrangements】
We are currently employing a combination of remote and in-office work to ensure that approximately 70% of our employees are working from home at all times. We are also encouraging our employees to use our flextime system in order to avoid rush hour commuting. Please note that these arrangements may change depending on the situation.
【Postponement and cancellation of seminars】
We may be forced to postpone or cancel seminars. We will provide updates on changes to our seminar plans when appropriate.
【Coronavirus Resource Center】
We have created a new coronavirus client resource page to serve as a clearinghouse for information on such key issues as employer obligations, contract issues, supply chain disruptions, financing and insurance. Please check the site frequently as it will be regularly updated.
【Visitor Health Information】
We are asking that all visitors to our office fill out a visitor form including health information at reception upon arrival.
【Business Continuity Plan】
Please find the business continuity plan enacted by Baker McKenzie in response to the novel coronavirus here.
We will be implementing additional measures as necessary in order to prevent the further spread of the virus and continue serving our clients. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by these measures and thank you for your understanding.
