Coronavirus Statement

Revised April 2021.
Revised March 2021.
Revised August 2020.
Originally published March 2020.

In light of continuing concerns about the spread of the Coronavirus in the State of Maine, and consistent with the Governor’s Restarting Maine’s Economy Plan, Perkins Thompson, P.A. has implemented the following updated measures:

  • Allowing all non-essential attorneys and staff (including all of our legal assistants and paralegals) to continue work remotely;
  • Temporarily suspending all non-essential in-person client meetings;
  • Temporarily suspending all non-essential business travel;
  • Requiring all employees, attorneys, and clients to conduct a self-assessment for COVID-19 symptoms prior to visiting our offices;
  • Mandating social distancing within our offices and requiring face masks where social distancing cannot be achieved;
  • Implementing increased sanitation and cleaning protocols in our offices; and
  • Advising all staff and attorneys to closely monitor their health, practice social distancing and good hygiene, and self-quarantine when appropriate (guided by health and government organizations).

During this time, we are also making audio and video conferencing services available to our clients (and potential clients) in order to facilitate communication with our staff and attorneys.  All of our attorneys and staff continue to have access to their email, voicemail, and office extensions while working remotely.  Should you have general questions, however, please contact Perkins Thompson at 207-774-2635 or admin@perkinsthompson.com for assistance.

Perkins Thompson remains focused on serving you through these challenging times, just like we have done over the past 150 years.  We take pride in our role as your legal advisors, business partner, and member of the community, and we will continue to do our part during this evolving situation.

In the meantime, we will strive to provide up-to-date information on the Coronavirus situation that you may find useful, which can be found here.

Yours truly,
Joseph G. Talbot, Board of Directors
