Stuarts Business Continuity Plan - Covid-19

The Cayman Islands Government has implemented measures to control the spread of Covid-19. Stuarts' reliable Business Continuity Plan enables us to ensure little to no impact to client service.

Background

Following the first confirmed cases of Covid-19, the Cayman Islands Government has implemented measures to control the spread of the virus including; island wide curfews, travel restrictions, the closure of all schools, restrictions on public gatherings and the banning of all cruise ships. We are positioned to ensure business continuity for our clients and our robust and reliable Business Continuity Plan will enable us to ensure little to no impact to client service.

Covid-19 Preparation

We have been aware for some time that it was highly likely Covid-19 would make it to our shores and that the virus would cause increasing disruption to travel arrangements and to our day-to-day lives in Cayman. We know how to deliver high quality service at Stuarts and we will not be distracted by the unpleasant realities of Covid-19.

Business Continuity Plan

Whilst all of our attorneys and other professionals have always been able to seamlessly work remotely from anywhere in the world, we have also equipped and set up all of our personnel with the ability to work safely and securely from home. Our personnel will continue to attend work at our offices as normal for the time subject to self-isolation protocols. We will continue to monitor the situation closely and should it become necessary we will close our offices and switch to a 100% remote working environment.​

Future Updates

We continue to assess the impact of this situation on a daily basis and are monitoring closely the advice given by the authorities. If you have any questions or concerns please reach out to your usual Stuarts contact or Chris Humphries at chris.humphries@stuartslaw.com.

To all of our clients around the world - stay safe.
