As we enter the festive season and the end of a year like no other, the partners of Bennett Jones would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all of our clients, staff, families and communities.
We thank our clients for allowing us to assist them as trusted legal counsel as they engage the future and persevere during a period of unprecedented challenges and opportunities.
We thank our own people for their enduring commitment, hard work and adaptability.
We thank the first responders, health professionals and other essential workers everywhere for keeping us safe and reminding us of the importance of caring for others and giving back for the greater good.
And we thank our families for their love and for being the indispensable mental, physical and spiritual strength that helps us excel through the greatest challenges.
In the year ahead, Bennett Jones will be preparing to mark its centennial, a milestone we cannot wait to celebrate with you throughout 2022. We look forward to that time when we can gather in-person, shake hands and look each other in the eye without the mediation of technology, and to toast 100 years of partnership, friendship, collegiality and impact on the legal profession, economy, business and community.
Until then, we are grateful to all those doing their part to keep our communities and workplaces safe. In that vein, in lieu of traditional cards this year, our firm has made a donation to The Canadian Mental Health Association.
On behalf of Bennett Jones, we wish you and your loved ones a very peaceful holiday season and a healthy and prosperous New Year.
Chairman and Chief Executive Officer
