One of the most challenging aspects of the current concerns around Coronavirus is the uncertainty. Is it safe for us to conduct business as normal? Is it safe for us to be around other people? Will we be in lock down like other countries, such as Italy.
It is important to consider also, if you have upcoming activities such as the sale or purchase of a property, what will happen if your chosen legal representative is forced into isolation and they don’t have the ability to work remotely? Timely delays with legal transactions that have a deadline, or even those that don’t, could cost you money and create anxiety and undue concern.
Choosing a small law firm who can work remotely and act nimbly could be crucial to ensuring your legal activities can be managed on time and without complication. Large law firms may have hundreds of staff and additional service teams to monitor during this time, and the ramifications of isolation in those kinds of firms could be crippling. Smaller firms have a much smaller personnel footprint, so the observation is much less of a concern and the chances of isolation, as a result, are much smaller.
