28 April 2020

With a view to helping advance disputes amid physical distancing protocols, Gowling WLG's Ottawa office is excited to announce the formation of a dedicated remote ADR panel.

"With this understanding top of mind, we are pleased to offer this suite of virtual services as we continue to offer assistance during this uncertain time."
