Carlile Patchen & Murphy LLP has been actively monitoring The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines and the evolving parameters recommended by the State of Ohio. As new outbreaks of COVID-19 are reported daily, and the impact it will have on our community is unknown at this time, we want to assure you that our firm is dedicated to protecting the safety and well-being of our clients, employees and partners.

Many businesses, organizations and communities are in the process of implementing internal controls to help prevent the spread of this disease. The next few months may be challenging, but the attorneys at CPM can provide guidance for decisions that may affect your business. CPM Attorney, Alicia Nesline Shaw, outlines some points that employers need to keep in mind as it concerns Coronavirus in the workplace.

Health & Safety Measures at Carlile Patchen & Murphy LLP
CPM has put into place several precautions to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our workplace. One involves social distancing and the adoption of technology in place of in-person meetings and the use of e-mail and telephone as a means of communicating. CPM has also asked its employees and partners to eliminate non-essential personal and business travel, especially by communal means.

While we will remain open for business, we are limiting office access to employees only. If you need to reach us, we will be able to assist you through telecommunications. Although our in-person interactions will be limited at this time, we want to assure you that you can count on us to provide you with the same level of service that you have come to expect from our firm.

As we collectively respond to the developing COVID-19 outbreak, our thoughts are with you and your family. We send our best wishes for your health and safety. We are especially grateful to the medical community who are helping to fight the spread of this illness.

Client Testimonials

Unfortunately, businesses are struggling across the board, and no one is safe from the aftershock of this virus.  My tenant reached out to me on March 18th, saying that they wanted to continue to pay their employees, however, their business was borderline shut down due to their clientele cancelling appointments, even before the full stay-at-home order went into effect.  As a result, they requested a 60-day deferral so that they could take a couple months without having to pay their lease.  I sent their request over to Geoff Kunkler and Jordan Butler at CPM and they helped me put together an offer that made sense, so that they could continue to stay in business, all while helping me recoup the cost over time.
