Spanish Law Firm is Testing All Workers Ahead of Office Return

Law.com reports that  Law firm Uría Menéndez said that the results will influence any reopening decisions.

Uría Menéndez, a major law firm in Spain, is testing all of its staff for COVID-19 as a preliminary step before returning workers to its offices. Two people with knowledge of the situation told Law.com International that the firm is paying for workers to be tested, ahead of what another person described as a “prompt reopening”.

Uría confirmed that it is testing all its members in all locations, and said that the results will influence any reopening decisions. 

“According to the results, during the next weeks the most appropriate measures will be taken, always prioritizing the health of all members of the firm,” a firm spokesperson said in a statement.

The firm added that the preference is for its people to continue with remote working for the time being.

Commenting on the current legal market in Spain, a partner at an international firm based in the country said it is not “business as usual” and that office re-openings will help bring a sense of normality.
