As we continue to monitor the spread of COVID-19 throughout our region and the United States, we would like to update our clients and friends about some critical changes to our business operations.
On March 21, 2020, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy signed Executive Order No. 107 closing down all non-essential retail businesses and ordering New Jersey residents to stay home in an effort to control the community spread of COVID-19 throughout the State. The Order took effect that night at 9:00 p.m. A similar Order was entered by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo on March 20, 2020, effective at 8:00 p.m. on March 22, 2020.
To comply with these Orders and to do our part to mitigate further spread of COVID-19, all GRSLBG&B offices are now physically closed to the general public and shall remain closed pending further Order of the Governors of New Jersey and New York. Notwithstanding the temporary physical closure of our offices, GRSLBG&B remains fully operational, has implemented our business continuity plan, and is completely remote for all of attorneys and staff so that we can continue to meet the needs of all of our valued clients during these uncharted times. Our goal is to ensure that GRSLBG&B remains fully functional during this time, and we assure you that the Firm’s attorneys and staff are here to provide you with the same high quality of service and accessibility that you have come to expect from us.
As our offices are now closed to the general public, all meetings, depositions, mediations, arbitrations, etc., currently scheduled to take place in our New Jersey and New York offices are adjourned and will be rescheduled to take place by phone or video conference.
Your telephone calls, e-mails and correspondence remain important to us. Should you need to speak with someone at the Firm, our main telephone number remains fully operational during business hours. Our receptionist will take a message and have the person you are calling return your call in a timely and professional manner. If you have a question or concern regarding the Firm’s operations or need immediate assistance, please click here to contact Firm Management.
As always, we wish that you and your families remain safe and continue in the best of health during this unprecedented time.
