H&W Continuity of Service During Coronavirus COVID-19 Outbreak

Hamberger & Weiss LLP is committed to maintaining uninterrupted service to our clients through the novel coronavirus pandemic while also ensuring the safety, health, and well-being of our colleagues, clients, and community. Presently, the New York Workers' Compensation Board continues to maintain operations and hold hearings through the use of its Virtual Hearing system.

We are grateful that we have the technological capabilities to continue our business operations while minimizing any health risks. Our attorneys and staff members are able to work remotely while maintaining the security of our network thanks to the use of our encrypted virtual private network and other high-level security protocols. Our attorneys are able to use the Board's Virtual Hearing system to appear via video conference at any hearing site in New York State. Thanks to these technologies, our offices will remain open and our clients will experience no interruption in service. Most importantly, we will be able to use these technologies to exercise social distancing in order to minimize the spread of COVID-19 and maintain the health of our communities.

Should further information become available from the Board or other government officials that necessitate changes in our business practices, we will be certain to notify you. If you have any questions, concerns, or wish to discuss our business operations during the coronavirus crisis, please do not hesitate to contact Mark Hamberger at mhamberger@hwcomp.com or via phone at (716) 854-1565.
