COVID-19 Update

COVID-19 Update

Your safety and the safety of our staff is of paramount importance to us.

At Camatta Lempens we have put in place procedures to protect our clients and staff from risks related to the spread of Covid-19 while also ensuring that we are continuing work on your matters and new matters as before.

Business is occurring as usual. Our staff may be working remotely however there are no interruptions to the provision of our legal services.

We will be undertaking the majority of our engagements remotely rather than face-to-face with only meetings that are considered legally critical taking place in person.

While this isn’t our preferred method of conducting business, we are equipped for tele-conferencing and have electronic file management systems that allow us to provide legal services remotely.

The state courts, federal courts and tribunals have put in place procedures to continue cases including telephone and video hearings conferences, and the ability to file electronically (in some courts this is not new). Some cases will not be able to take place with these changes and may be postponed. We are monitoring all developments in the courts procedures and how this may impact your case.

Camatta Lempens is continuing to adjust office protocols in line with government health advice.

We ask that you please email us rather than calling our reception:

We encourage you to stay abreast of the latest developments and advice from governmental authorities related to health and economic policies.

If you are a business or an individual who has lost their job, we also take this opportunity to remind you of the stimulus packages that are available and the wage subsidy announced on 30 March 2020. For businesses, your accountant is your best point of contact in this regard. For individuals, contact our employment law team today.

We are here to assist you during this uncertain time and look forward to continuing to work with you.
