Foley & Mansfield’s Response to COVID-19

To Our Valued Clients,

Foley & Mansfield is dedicated to protecting the health and well-being of our employees, clients, and business partners. To that end, we have converted our 16 offices to remote status. We have initiated our Business Continuance Plan which will allow us to continue to deliver legal services to our clients without interruption, while ensuring security of all client and confidential information.

In addition to operating remotely, Foley & Mansfield is taking the following measures:

  • We have formed a COVID-19 Response Team consisting of the five members of the Firm’s Executive Committee, the CEO, and the Human Resources team.
  • We have suspended all nonessential business travel and encouraged employees to, if possible, reduce or reschedule essential business travel.
  • When appearances are necessary, we are working with opposing counsel, courts, mediators, and court reporters to explore alternatives to in-person appearances, including appearances by video and phone.
  • We continue to follow information and guidance laid out by the CDC and local health departments and government officials.

We are grateful for the opportunity to serve our clients, and our commitment to serving our clients during this difficult time remains unwavering. 

Please contact Kyle Mansfield at 612-964-1513 or kmansfield@foleymansfield.com with any questions.
