Message from CEO/Managing Partner & Holiday Hours

Season’s Greetings,

2020 has been a year like no other. Throughout 2020, the safety of our team and our clients has been our top priority. Since March 23, the vast majority of our team has worked from home. Our executive team, lawyers, managers and administrative team rose to the occasion and found ways to continue to do exceptional work during a challenging time. The team members who work onsite to maintain daily functions, follow strict COVID-19 protocols to keep our office safe for each other and for our clients.

We found new ways to be there for our clients during a time of uncertainty. Although in-person meetings were rare, our lawyers made use of technology to provide clients with the high level of service they have always received. Backyard deck meetings were the norm for the summer.  Our lawyers have also demonstrated thought leadership, including giving presentations to clients, writing articles for our COVID-19 Pandemic Resources, and speaking with media about emerging legal issues related to the pandemic.

Giving back to the community has always been a part of Fillmore Riley’s culture. In 2020, we participated in the Winnipeg Humane Society’s virtual Paws in Motion and CancerCare Manitoba’s virtual Challenge for Life. We recently surpassed our fundraising goal for our internal United Way campaign. Even though we could not be together as one team, we united in spirit to make a difference in the lives of Manitobans.

Our holidays will look very different this year. It will not be easy, but staying home is the best way to protect one another, and to support the frontline healthcare workers who are battling COVID-19. We thank courageous Manitobans who are exposed to risk on the frontlines and all those who continue to provide essential services.

We wish you health, peace and prosperity in 2021.

Glen Peters
CEO & Managing Partner
