Bass, Berry & Sims Managing Partner Todd Rolapp provided an update for The American Lawyer’s round-up of how large, national law firms are handling attorney staffing in response to the COVID-19 crisis.

As the firm previously shared with our clients and colleagues here, Bass, Berry & Sims has taken the step to continue serving clients during these uncertain times through remote work. In keeping with our top priority of ensuring the safety and well-being of our employees, clients, families and the community, our team is leveraging our secure, tech-enabled abilities to work from home to provide uninterrupted legal counsel.

“Anyone who can effectively work from home is being asked to work from home and that is by and large all the lawyers,” Todd said. “A group of core staff and business professionals continues to work in the office to perform necessary functions there.”

The firm is also actively monitoring updates to provide clients with the answers they need as the situation continues to evolve. Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have, and also review the firm’s COVID-19 Response page with important links, guidance and relevant legal alerts.
