Statement on COVID-19 Threat to MWB Community

Front facade of McGuire Wood & Bissette, Drhumor Building, Asheville, NC

At McGuire Wood & Bissette, we exist to serve our clients, our community and one another.  With that mission in mind, we are taking the threat posed by COVID-19 very seriously.  We are encouraging our attorneys to conduct business by phone or video conference when doing so is prudent.  We also ask you, as our clients, to please reschedule your appointment or ask to have it conducted via phone or video conference if you have been feeling ill or have any reason to suspect you may have been exposed.

Please know that we are conducting extra sanitizing measures, offering our staff additional sick leave to ensure they feel comfortable staying home if they don’t feel well, and putting contingency plans in place to allow us to continue to serve your needs even if we are unable to work in the office for a period of time.  We are also providing guidance to clients throughout our community and in other communities already impacted regarding best practices to deal with an unprecedented situation.

If we can help you or your business in navigating this unusual situation, please reach out to us.  We are here to face these uncertain times together with you. (828) 254-8800
