Our Coronavirus Statement (23rd March 2020)

Further to the Prime Ministers’ announcements at his daily briefing on 22nd March 2020 we remain open, but are working to minimise face to face contact with clients for the safety of staff and clients alike.  Please call the person who is dealing with your case if you are an existing client or if you are a new client please call the office and we will ensure one of our lawyers calls you back to discuss the options available to you.

We are operating with minimal staffing levels at all of our three offices. Our staff continue to work hard whilst working from home and we have telephone, email and video calling at our disposal to ensure that we can maintain the best level of service possible for our clients.  

We remain committed to adhering to the Government guidelines and remain committed to servicing our clients both new and old with your essential legal matters.

Many legal matters can be dealt with over the phone and where paperwork needs reviewing, signing and witnessing we can work with you to ensure this is completed in the safest way possible.

Our Coronavirus Statement (20th March 2020)

We continue to take on-board the advice from Public Health England and have invoked home working for a number of our staff. Staff who are present in the office are following advice and working in separate rooms and maintaining a suitable distance between each other when face-to-face discussions take place.

All of our offices remain open however we seek to limit face-to-face contact by requesting clients to call us or email us in the first instance. We have put in place a video calling service called Zoom that will enable us to communicate better with both our team and our clients during these uncertain times. Our team have been trained on how to use Zoom and also trained on how to guide our clients through the process of accessing and using Zoom.
