COVID-19 UPDATE – ALTRO LLP FULLY OPERATIONAL – LAWYERS WORKING REMOTELY
Altro LLP (the “Firm”) remains fully operational during this unprecedented period of global pandemic and government mandated shutdown of non-essential places of business in both Ontario and Quebec, where the Firm has its principal offices. The current environment has forced most Canadian businesses, clients of the Firm as well as the Firm itself, to find alternative ways of conducting business and ensuring clients are serviced in a timely manner, while ensuring the safety of team members and clients alike.
The bodies governing lawyers and notaries in Ontario, Quebec, New York and Florida have all issued guidance and best practices for lawyers during this time. The Firm has implemented effective procedures for its Canadian and US lawyers and notaries to effectively service clients during this period in compliance with these guidelines and best practices.
