April COVID-19 update from Hathaway & Kunz
As we move into a new month, we wanted to take a moment to check in and share how our firm has adapted to these changing, challenging times.
From the state level, the Wyoming Supreme Court has instituted some special rules that allow most business and transactions to proceed. These include:
- Enabling video conferencing for hearings, court matters, depositions and other ongoing litigation
- Allowing various court clerks to enact electronic service and document-filing procedures
- Enacting special rules at the Secretary of State’s office that allow for virtual document notarization
As a firm, Hathaway & Kunz remains fully operational, including taking on new clients, maintaining case loads, handling active litigation, and moving forward with transactional matters. In fact, many of our clients have chosen to take advantage of this time to pursue matters and attempt to position themselves favorably when normal economic activity resumes.
In accordance with recommended practice, we continue to limit in-office interactions. However, if you do require an in-office appointment, we will be fully able to accommodate you, and we have enacted sterilization protocols to minimize the risks associated with the spread of Coronavirus. We are also available by phone, email or videoconference.
From our firm, to you and yours, we wish you the best in this hard time.
