We at WMCZ Lawyers are very proud of our team, community and country in its response to COVID-19. We all played a vital role in helping to flatten the curve. The Province of Saskatchewan has introduced its Re-Open Plan and each phase has been successful, with COVID-19 cases remaining consistently low. As such, effective June 1, 2020 we have made the decision to slowly begin reintegrating our team members back into the office. We have proper sanitizing protocols and physical distancing measures in place at all times to keep everyone safe.
Currently we remain closed to the public, but continue to operate at full capacity and are fully accessible to our clients through video conference, telephone and email. We will continue to update you as we re-open our office to clients and vendors.
On behalf of all of us at WMCZ Lawyers, we look forward to seeing you again soon!
