COVID-19 Update

March 16, 2020

Dear client,

We trust you and your family are well and safe. Indeed, we are privileged to represent you and continue to act as your counsels. It is our duty to protect and preserve your well-being.

Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, your safety and well-being remains our utmost priority. Consequently, we have decided to close our physical office for the foreseeable future and until further notice.

With our physical office now closed, we will continue to represent you to the best of our abilities, remotely in self-isolation, while maintaining and following the directives of the health officials of our Government. We are working and communicating with our regulatory body as well as our IT department to ensure that your rights are preserved, your matter is not prejudiced, and that we remain accessible to you at all times during this period.

Further, our profession has been notified that all branches of the Superior Court of Ontario as well as all tribunals have cancelled all hearings with certain limited exceptions until further notice.

Accordingly, all non-essential face-to-face meetings will be cancelled or converted to teleconferences moving forward. We are also setup for Skype meetings, if necessary. We ask that you practice physical distancing and not attend our offices for your own safety and health.

Should you wish to connect with your lawyer or any of our staff members, kindly email him or her directly, and he/she will respond at their first opportunity either by replying to your email or contacting you via telephone if you have requested for same. We all remain at your service, and we will work towards continuing our representation of your matter with the same care and compassion we have always provided you.
