Please be aware that our office remains open for business.
We continue to closely monitor developments with the COVID-19 pandemic, with a view to safeguarding our clients, staff and our community. Our office remains open for business with a limited number of staff. At least one lawyer is in the office during working hours in order to facilitate the delivery of legal services to our clients. Some of our lawyers are working from home, but remain able to continue working on your legal matters. Please contact us as you normally would, by phone or email. Our receptionist is available to take your calls and put you in touch with our staff and lawyers, even those that are working from home.
With the COVID-19 situation intensifying we have undertaken enhanced measures to ensure any potential for exposure is minimized. These include:
– Meeting clients in person only where absolutely necessary.
– Restricting access to the office only to those clients who have a scheduled appointment.
– Screening clients by phone prior to scheduling an in person meeting, this includes questions regarding recent travel and illness.
– Increased sanitization measures for cleaning all surfaces throughout the day.
– Sanitizing areas where we meet with clients in person immediately after the meeting is concluded, this includes all tables, chairs and writing utensils.
– Employing a no handshake policy.
– Promoting preventative best practices including hand washing and sanitization.
– Providing access to hand sanitization in our office in conjunction with those in place in our building.
– Employees who exhibit any signs of illness are not permitted in the office.
– Enforcing the recommended self-isolation period following personal travel for all our employees.
We will continue to assess our response to this emergency on an ongoing basis and we will keep you up to date with any changes to safety measures, policies and services.
We hope that you and your families stay safe and healthy and offer our sympathies to all those impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak.
