In the past few weeks, COVID-19 has presented the world with an unprecedented challenge which has required unprecedented measures. As a trusted business partner to our valued clients and a responsible community member and employer, we are doing all we can to help stop the further spread of COVID-19.
Accordingly, we will be closing our physical offices in downtown Vancouver and Toronto and have implemented a remote working policy for our lawyers and staff. The closure will be effective as of 5 pm PDT on Thursday, March 19, 2020, until Friday April 3, 2020, at which time we will review the situation and communicate accordingly. Our business continuity plans have prepared us for this and we have the technologies in place to continue to meet the needs of our clients.
Our physical offices will remain operational with a skeleton staff to ensure that we can continue to provide essential services for urgent legal matters and critical core operations.
While we are working remotely, we will continue to provide support and respond to your needs with the same urgency and efficiency that you have come to expect from Alexander Holburn. Our lawyers and staff can be reached directly by phone or email as usual. Please feel free to reach out to me directly or your contact at Alexander Holburn at any time if you need any assistance or if you have any questions or concerns. You can reach your lawyer or firm contact by accessing our web directory here.
We are confident that our communities will rise to meet the challenges presented by COVID-19 and we trust that you and your families will remain safe and healthy.
