A message from Cohen and Wolf, P.C.
Dear Clients, Business Partners and Friends,
The welfare of our Cohen and Wolf community – our clients, our guests and our employees – is our top priority. This week, with that priority in mind, we made the decision to ask our lawyers and other team members to work remotely. This decision is made in accordance with the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and other health organizations.
We are fortunate to have technology that permits us to continue to conduct the business of our clients seamlessly and with minimal interruption. We want to assure you that our remote operations will provide you the same responsive relationship to your Cohen and Wolf team members that you have always enjoyed – both by phone and electronically. Please reach out to us on the matters we are handling for you, as well as any other matters we can help with during this uncertain time.
While we do not know how long this arrangement will last, we will keep you updated as changes occur. Please also feel free to reach out to your primary contact at the Firm if you have specific questions about our operations or call our main office at 203-368-0211 to be directed to the appropriate person. Calls will be answered between the hours of 8:30am and 12:30pm and voice messages left after that time will be answered the next business day.
We recognize that these circumstances are unusual, and we appreciate the trust you place in us, Thank you for your understanding and support as we all navigate this difficult situation together. We wish you, your families, and your employees continued good health, and we look forward to seeing you again soon, in person.
Courts and Municipal Offices
The Federal court system announced reduced operations, suspending many trials and ordering video conferencing for other proceedings. Our State court system has announced reduced operations that will continue indefinitely. During this period, only certain specific emergency proceedings will be heard. If you have questions about whether these restrictions apply to your case, please contact your primary relationship attorney. Please also see the Judicial Branch’s COVID-19 website for more information: https://jud.ct.gov/COVID19.htm
State Department of Revenue Services
The State DRS branch offices, and many state offices and city and town halls are closed until further notice. Fortunately, we are continuing to receive due diligence items required for closings, and have received confirmation from several title insurance companies that they will continue to provide gap coverage for closings that occur during this period, and insure mortgages as of the date of the closing.
