COVID-19 – What is Lospa Lawyers doing?
Working from home
To support the health and wellbeing of our people, clients and the community around us, our people are now working remotely.
While we are working remotely, it will be business-as-usual in terms of our client service. We are well-prepared for remote working and we are providing the support our people need to continue working with each other and our clients. We will maintain limited access to our office for the purpose of critical business or client needs.
Continuity of client service
All our lawyers are issued with secure iMacs which they use every day and can connect to the Lospa Lawyers network remotely. We have taken steps to ensure that we have the training, equipment and support in place to assist our people working from home for an extended period, and to ensure our IT systems are able to manage the increased number of remote connections.
Visiting Lospa Lawyers office
We will maintain limited access to our office for the purpose of critical business or client needs. For the safety of our people, clients and community, we ask that you do not visit our office if in the last 14 days:
- you have come into direct contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19; or
- you have arrived from an overseas destination.
We also ask that you do not visit our office if:
- you are under self-isolation awaiting confirmation testing or have been confirmed to have contracted the COVID-19 virus, until medical clearance has been provided stating you are able to do so; or
- if you have any fever, cough, flu-like symptoms or are feeling unwell.
In our office we provide hand sanitisers and disinfectants to promote a healthy workplace, and we encourage visitors (and our people) to adhere to handwashing, cough etiquette, social distancing and hygiene practices. If you are feeling unwell when visiting our offices, please make your Allens host aware so we can support you accordingly.
Large meetings and conferences
In order to protect our people and our clients, we are curtailing our meetings and events. We will act in accordance with restrictions of large static events. Where possible, we are also utilising digital channels to deliver content in an alternative format.
Advising clients on COVID-19 issues
We continue to advise our clients on the disruptions, preparedness, and related legal and business issues they face during this challenging time. We have a team committed to sharing our lawyers’ views on best practices and insights from around the firm. Please contact us if you’d like a member of our team to be in touch.
