Columbus Law Firms Commit to Reducing the Spread of Coronavirus

A message from the CBA Board of Governors

The Columbus Bar Association commends the lawyers and law firms who are doing their part to limit the spread of COVID-19 by directing employees to work remotely and by diverting client meetings to phone or video conference. We recognize the vital role our lawyers play in advising clients of their legal rights and obligations during these unprecedented times. However, working remotely and minimizing human contact is imperative to curb the spread. The entire legal community is working hard to adhere to the directives of the Governor and protect the well-being of its employees and staff.

If continuing to work on an in-office basis is necessary for your business, we strongly encourage you to implement the business best practices described by Lt. Governor Husted in the Governor’s March 20 Covid-19 update/press conference, if you have not already.

This is not an easy thing to do in the face of our duty to our clients and the legal system. The CBA Board of Governors and the entire CBA staff are committed to supporting these efforts in whatever way we can. We have made a number of virtual resources available to our members at, including tutorials and webinars on how to effectively use technology to work remotely. If there is anything at all we can do to help you navigate these complicated times, please send an email to
