In light of the unfolding COVID-19 developments, all Allens staff will work remotely by Wednesday, 18 March 2020. The firm is implementing these new measures to support the health and wellbeing of our people and clients, and of the community around us.
These arrangements are precautionary. We continue to monitor advice from public health authorities and we believe that taking these steps now is appropriate.
One of our people in Brisbane may have been exposed to the COVID-19 virus. As a precaution, our Brisbane office has commenced working remotely from today.
Allens is well prepared for remote working — it will be business as usual in terms of our client service. Clients will be able to reach Allens as normal, and our contact details are on our website.
Health and safety is the firm's first priority, and we will continue to implement a range of other measures in accordance with the advice and directions of health authorities.
