The COVID-19 emails are endless. But I received one a day or so ago that offered a good perspective:
In early British World War II when the public was bracing for widely predicted mass air attacks on major cities across the country, the British government created and posted everywhere the now famous and often mimicked phrase “Keep Calm and Carry On.” The Brits had it right, of course. The key things needed during that time was for people to stay busy, continue the everyday work that kept the economy moving and not grow weary and become apathetic or demoralized.
Once you strip away the rush on toilet paper, rescheduling of meetings, the panic of potential budget cuts and the hard to even imagine potential loss of loved ones, the cold hard facts are that in addition to taking the recommended precautions, we all need to carry on.
The above piece was written by Craig Brown of Law Vision as part of a longer article.
How we “Keep Calm and Carry On” has become part of the work of the day during this viral crisis. Technology has allowed us to work remotely for years when we were not in our offices. But now we are putting that technology to daily use and on a much broader scale. Not only do we have our offices on our laptops, tablets and cell phones at home now, but we have video conferencing, Zoom, Skype, FaceTime and so many more ways to connect face-to-face, if not person-to-person. All but a few key essential staff members are able to work remotely at this time and we are working to cut down the time they spend in the office. These options allow us to stay in touch with each other as a firm, you as our clients, other counsel, other trusted advisors and the courts. Lommen Abdo is taking advantage of technology to be a virtual law firm that continues to be able to meet all of your needs.
