A Message to Our Clients about COVID-19

 

With the rapid evolvement of the situation surrounding COVID-19, The Breton Law Group has implemented several precautionary measures to help ensure the safety of our employees and clients, and to continue delivery of legal services to our clients.

COVID Response Leadership

Firm Partners and operational staff meet daily to monitor developments and ensure we are fully prepared to respond to the evolving situation and to implement our business continuity plan should it be required.

Restricted travel

We have adopted non-essential travel restrictions for The Breton Law Group personnel.  Any personnel who have travelled outside of Canada will be adhering to the public health self-isolation directives and will not be in attendance at our office.  We will continue to implement workplace practices consistent with recommendations from public health authorities.

Reviewing conferences, meetings and events

We are prioritizing the health and safety of our employees, clients, and our community.  Only essential meetings which must be held in person will take place within our office.  We will be offering client meetings using telephone and video conference options.

We ask that you do not attend our offices without an advance appointment. If you have a scheduled appointment and are required to self-isolate or if you feel unwell, please advise us by telephone or email.

Account payments can be made over the phone or through email transfer – please contact our office to facilitate payment of your account.

We will leverage our technology to continue to provide legal services electronically and are committed to working with you to meet your legal needs.

Working remotely

We are making every effort to continue to serve your needs from within our office.  However, be assured that all of our lawyers and office operations are equipped to continue to serve you remotely if necessary.
