McBrayer members James H. Frazier, III, Stephen Amato, Cindy Effinger, and Luke Morgan were recently quoted in a Lane Report article about how Lexington law firms are helping businesses navigate the uncertainties of COVID-19.
Mr. Amato spoke to the implications of the coronavirus on contracts, stating that new attention is being paid to a type of contractual clause that "governs the responsibilities of the parties should there be some sort of unforeseen intervening event out of the control of either party."
Ms. Effinger commented on the "huge spike in issues related to COVID-19, such as the complicated web of regulations surrounding employee confidentiality and medical inquiries in the workplace" and McBrayer's efforts to navigate the "concerns our clients face lately...with returning to business as usual and mitigating the repercussions if they can’t."
Mr. Morgan noted the newly remote processes McBrayer has adopted for depositions, court hearings, and client meetings, stating "I expect we will continue to use videoconferencing going forward for a lot of meetings because it is a great time saver.”
Managing member James H. Frazier, III, echoed the sentiment, saying "a lot of these changes have made us operate more efficiently, and some of them will be permanent." Mr. Frazier also pointed out McBrayer's priority - keeping staff, attorneys, and clients safe during these challenging times.
