Dear Friends and Clients,
As we work as a community to continue to prepare and shift for the impact of COVID-19, we wanted to share how HGD is addressing the current situation. The health and safety of our employees, clients, and communities continue to be our primary concern. There are a number of measures we are taking to ensure we manage to safely get through this fluid situation while continuing to serve our clients, business partners, and employees effectively.
For our clients, HGD is maintaining all of our legal services and our business is fully operational – it’s business as usual (albeit far from usual circumstances).
With all of our IT systems operating as expected to allow for remote work, we have taken the following steps to protect the health and wellbeing of our employees and local communities:
- All employees have been strongly encouraged to work remotely. Work-related travel and event attendance have been suspended or postponed.
- In addition to using our normal collaboration and communication tools, we are providing employees additional equipment to ensure a comfortable and effective remote workspace.
- We continue to monitor recommendations from the WHO, CDC, and elected officials so we remain up-to-date on the latest information and safety protocols.
In this time of uncertainty, we will do everything we can to support our clients and our community. Should global conditions shift, we are confident we can quickly respond to changing dynamics, minimizing impacts to our business and disruptions to our clients and business partners.
These are challenging and uncertain times, but we feel confident that as a company and as a community, we can get through this together. Be safe. Be well. Please reach out to us if we may help you in any way.
Your friends at HGD
