Legal issues during COVID-19
In order to respond to the CVOID-19 pandemic, all levels of government are making decisions quickly, with new legislation coming into force, announcements regarding renter and landlord obligations, job seeker allowances, school disruptions and more. As a result we have put together a list of resources below that you may find useful, which we will continue to update as the situation changes. Like you, we’re trying to take this a day at a time.
All members of the Grainger Legal team are continuing to work (remotely) and our matters are progressing as normal. Our expertise lies with transport accident claims, workplace injuries, victims of crime compensation, property transfers, real estate transactions, wills, powers of attorney, probate and estates. If you have a problem you think we can assist you with, please get in touch via phone or email. If your query is in relation to an area in which we don’t practise, we’re happy to help you find the right place.
