We have reviewed and analysed the strength of our business continuity plan. In line with the Government’s strategy we have and are planning for all scenarios and working hard to protect our clients and the community in which we live and work.
We have always treated as a priority the health and wellbeing of our staff, clients and communities. This is right and we continue to do so. We have our own “Cobra Committee” of senior leaders from the core business areas in the firm monitoring developments on a daily basis, and responding to them. We are following the guidance of Public Health England (PHE) and the reports of the World Health Organisation.
We are here to support all our clients and contacts effectively and efficiently throughout this time. We have the technology to continue to meet our clients’ needs and deliver what is required. All our teams in Paris Smith share the same sense of deep commitment of service to our clients and our valued connections. All our professional staff and secretaries are able to work remotely. We can conduct meetings by telephone conferencing.
We have postponed events for the coming months and arranged for meetings wherever possible to be conducted by telephone. Hand gel is available throughout our offices and all visitors to our offices are asked to use the gel and sign a declaration as to their state of health to minimise the risk of inadvertently introducing the virus to any of our offices.
We shall play our part in helping our clients and our communities address the challenges faced by the virus. We are here to help you, your families and your businesses through this crisis and beyond. Do call upon our expertise and network connections if only as a sounding board for ideas which you may have.
