Varnavas Law Firm's safety plan for Covid-19

In light of the recent global health emergency of the COVID-19 virus spread and following the security measures taken by the Greek Government, Varnavas Law Firm has already adopted a number of safety policies to maintain business continuity and protect the health of our team members and our clients as well.

Therefore in the frames of our corporate social responsibility, we are currently taking the following measures of precaution:

  • We are only accepting the minimum number of visitors to our offices and have canceled all planned events, meet-ups, and conferences and we are currently using teleconference systems.
  • We have canceled all business travel and recommended that our team avoids non-urgent personal travel as well.
  • We require any employee that boards an aircraft, either domestically or abroad, to work from home for a 14-day precautionary period before coming back to work.
  • We have provided our team with clear advice on all the necessary precaution measures and provided sufficient hygienic supplies. We continue to keep them updated on a daily basis on the developments.
  • We have placed extra hand sanitizing stations around our offices and increased the frequency of office cleaning.
  • We have limited deliveries and pickups to and from our offices to the bare minimum required.
  • We have reduced on-site interviews to a minimum, proceeding with video interviews instead.
  • We are adopting flexible work arrangements to decouple our offices and at the same time facilitate our team members to take care of themselves and the ones close to them.

Our law firm continues its operation normally and we anticipate no impact on our services. However, we are prepared for any future scenario, including the possibility of our entire team working remotely.

As a law firm with a strong infrastructure, all of our team has been supplied with the necessary tools and gadgets to work remotely if required thus ensuring everyone’s safety.

We have developed excellent channels of internal and external communication and always give priority to our clients.

We will continue to meticulously monitor news from the World Health Organization and the Greek Ministry of Health, among other sources, and we intend to reassess the situation and adjust our plans accordingly.

Furthermore, we will continue to closely monitor official Government sources and evaluate the local developments in terms of public services and functionality in order to keep all of our clients updated.
