All COVID-19 bulletins

As the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) continues to spread, ensuring the health and safety of our people, clients, and business partners is our top priority. Given the growth in the number of cases of COVID-19 in North America, and continued uncertainty around the world, organizations must plan to manage the impact on their operations and workforces, as well as protect their employees, their families and communities.

Delivering  and Maintaining Client Service to You

We realize that business has to continue as usual where possible, which includes continuing to provide you with the level of service that you expect and require. We have taken steps to ensure that the timeliness and quality of that work remains unaffected.  As a Firm, we have invested in technology to ensure that our lawyers and business professionals can work remotely.

We will tailor our approach to communications to meet your specific needs and policies. We have many options we can deploy, and can adapt with you as circumstances change. We are able to host meetings remotely via videoconference, Webex or conference calls. We also have our client portal, Fasken Edge.

Sharing Insights With You

Like you, we are continuously monitoring information from official health organizations and planning and adjusting for business continuity in changing scenarios. To help our clients and business partners navigate this situation, we are centralizing all our COVID-19 related materials here into one information hub. This includes webinars, bulletins, blogs and links to key trusted information sources. Our timely insights focus on the evolving impact of the novel coronavirus including: employer preparedness, regulatory, contractual and legal guidance. We will continue to update this resource centre.
