COVID-19 Client Update: Monday, March 16th, 2020
Posted on March 16, 2020
Following the recommendations made today by the Federal Government of Canada on the evolving COVID-19 pandemic, RBS has escalated our response to this serious situation.
Effective immediately, we have advised all members of our Firm, where possible, to work from home. We are aligning ourselves with the steps being taken by all levels of government and the recommendations of health organizations to slow the spread of COVID-19.
The majority of our lawyers, paralegals and staff will be working remotely until further notice. At this time, our Vancouver and Surrey offices will remain open with standard office hours, and a small staff essential to our ongoing operations. We will endeavour to continue to provide the level of professional services that you have come to expect from our Firm.
We will take all necessary steps to ensure the health and safety of the members of our Firm and their families, while continuing to support the needs of our valued clients.
We will continue to monitor the situation daily, and provide further updates as required. It is important that we come together as a community and do everything that we can to overcome this serious threat, and support each other throughout.
If you need to contact your lawyer, please continue to do so by email and/or phone. All firm members can be found here.
