A MESSAGE TO OUR CLIENTS
At Brownlee LLP, we are committed to doing our part to help limit the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) without sacrificing our excellent level of service and responsiveness to our clients’ needs. As we take preventative measures to mitigate spreading the virus, our lawyers remain prepared to accept new files and continue work with ongoing matters.
It is prudent for the firm to implement safety measures to protect the health and safety of our lawyers, staff, clients, and suppliers.
As such, the Edmonton and Calgary offices are closed to the public. Email, telephone, and video conferencing are now the primary channels of communication for our clients with their lawyer instead of in-person meetings. Many of our lawyers and staff are working remotely and all have access to the necessary tools and resources. Also, note that direct phone calls to lawyer offices are being re-routed to their respective remote work locations.
If you require a meeting with your lawyer, in-person or otherwise, please contact them directly to coordinate the details.
We have also undertaken the following measures:
- A limited skeleton staff is working out of our offices and has the necessary resources to assist our remote workers.
- The main office phone lines in Edmonton (780-497-4800) and Calgary (403-232-8300) will continue to be answered.
- People who work in, or visit our offices are required to follow all recommended hygiene and social distancing practices and protocols. This includes maintaining physical distances, frequent hand washing, and the sanitizing of touch points and workstations.
- We have put in place measures requiring our lawyers and staff who have travelled to self-isolate. These measures are even more stringent than those recommended by the authorities.
As the COVID-19 situation and mitigation measures can change day by day, rest assured that our Executive Committee continues to meet on a regular basis to review the latest trends concerning the outbreak and discuss how to provide services to our clients while protecting the health and safety of all involved.
If you have any concerns or questions with respect to our response to this pandemic, or how this may affect your legal issues and our service, please contact your regular lawyer at our firm.

We wish you, your colleagues, and your family the best during these challenging times, and we remain committed to maintaining high levels of accessibility and responsiveness.
