The Irish Government has recently introduced unprecedented measures effective until March 29th at the earliest in order to protect the safety of everyone amid the current COVID-19 outbreak. As part of this the government has recommended social distancing and working from home where possible for the workforce.
As a service-focused firm, Roberts Nathan takes this advice very seriously and we have implemented our business continuity plans to ensure that we can continue to properly service our clients.
Our offices remain open and we have the systems, technology and effective work practices to enable our staff to work remotely and continue to deliver a high-quality service for our clients. We have a core management team working from our offices and a Partner will be available at all times.
As a consequence of this we will have Partners and staff working from the office on a rotational basis and remotely where appropriate. This position may change and we will advise if it does.
We will continue to operate our main office lines and all contact numbers remain the same. You can call or email your relevant Partner at any time with any queries. In terms of meetings we will not be conducting any face to face meetings for the time being. We can facilitate Skype, video and tele-conferences where appropriate.
The Government have announced a number of measures to support businesses and individuals and we will issue a separate email on this in due course. If we can help with the completion of any applications or any other queries you might have at this time please let us know. You will note that at this point most of what has been issued is only initial guidance but we will endeavour to keep you as fully informed as we can as soon as further information has been released.
You are not on your own – We are here to support and help you and your business at this time.
Take care and stay safe.
