Media & Defamation Law

COVID19 and Temporary Office Closure

As of April 28, 2021, in view of guidance from provincial Public Health, Burchells LLP's offices at 1801 Hollis Street are temporarily closed to the public. We are hopeful this closure can be reversed in a couple of weeks, but will take our guidance from Public Health and the province.

In the meantime our IT resources are more than sufficient, and Burchells' lawyers and staff remain hard at work delivering results for our clients.  It's business-as-usual.  Don't hesitate to contact us by phone or email.
