COVID-19 update: Effective immediately, our St. John’s office has implemented its remote work plan
In light of the COVID-19 Alert Level 5 in Newfoundland and Labrador announced on Friday, February 12th, our St. John’s office has, once again, implemented its remote work plan. This means our office is physically closed to the public and our lawyers and staff have transitioned to work from home status pending further updates from the Newfoundland and Labrador government and the advice of health officials.
Please refer to our website and social media channels for Firm updates related to COVID-19. We will advise once normal in-office business operations resume.
As we have done since the beginning of the pandemic, we will leverage our technology and other infrastructure to provide continued service to our clients.
If you need to contact a lawyer or staff member, you can access contact information through the search function on the Our Team page of our website.
