In light of the exceptional circumstances that we are all going through these last days due to the spread of the coronavirus, Tavares felt it was appropriate at this point to reassure clients and friends that we are putting measures into place in order to ensure the health of our employees, colleagues, and clients, and to remain fully operational and available during this worldwide crisis.
Like many countries across the globe, Brazil has also taken measures to control the spread of the new coronavirus, closely following the COVID-19 pandemic.
Following the guidance of public health authorities, we have implemented a comprehensive business continuity plan to safeguard the health and well-being of our employees, their families, and our valued friends and clients. And, simultaneously to maintain the superior level of service and responsiveness you have come to expect from Tavares.
As part of this plan, we are putting into place the following measures:
- We have ensured that our robust technological infrastructure enables our lawyers and staff to work remotely and continue to serve our clients. We are equipped with a high-performance and secure information system that allows our teams to ensure the continuity and quality of our services;
- We have imposed restrictions on all business travel for all employees going forward, until further notice;
- From now on, our exchanges will happen solely by email or videoconference – personal meetings will be postponed until further notice.
In addition, all the deadlines were suspended by the BPTO up to May 31, 2020. However, if you have a specific deadline beyond that date that you may be worried about, please contact us for advice.
We are working actively to assure our clients and business partners that we stand ready to continue to serve you as these events unfold.
All of Tavares’ team wishes to express its most sincere solidarity to all the people affected by COVID-19 across the world. We hope all of you, your families and friends stay healthy and safe.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if there is anything we can do to assist you. Our priority, as always, is to remain available to answer all your requests by e-mail: email@example.com.
