An update on COVID-19 and other recent events
During these unprecedented times, Trial Partners remains deeply committed and ready to serve the needs of our clients. Our team of seasoned professionals is dedicated to supporting you, and we will remain proactive in navigating the evolving litigation landscape. As part of that effort, we have been conducting research on how the COVID-19 pandemic, current economic crisis, and ongoing social unrest are affecting jurors. We will be distributing the results of our research on a rolling basis though a series of Research Briefs, which we also will post on our website.
We can perform many of our most common services effectively and safely during the COVID-19 pandemic. Often, we can do so in an online format (or other remote format), though we are becoming increasingly able to provide in-person services throughout most of the country in a manner that is safe and consistent with CDC guidelines, as well as any applicable state and local health orders.
For a proposal, rates, estimated budget, or other information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or (323) 653-3330.
Our team of professionals remains available to assist you while we continue to do our part to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
We are proud to remain committed to being everywhere you need us to be.
From the entire Trial Partners team, stay well, and we look forward to hearing from you soon.
