Coronavirus notice

Science progresses at pace, but there is still a lot to learn about this virus. One thing is clear – we are all interconnected. Our behaviour impacts on the health and wellbeing of our communities and we all have a duty to safeguard the vulnerable. This remains our priority.

In the early weeks of the crisis the firm implemented a business continuity plan to ensure the health of our staff, clients and the wider public was protected whilst we continued to provide you, our clients, with a first class service.

Offices

Whilst our offices are physically closed, we remain open for business and here for our clients in every other respect. This situation has not changed despite the recent ‘relaxation’ of lockdown. The guidance issued on 10th May was that those people who can work from home should not return to work and, fortunately, all of our staff are able to work from home and remain available for telephone and video conferencing appointments. Please contact your lawyer for more information. If you don’t have your contact’s number, or are not sure who to speak to, please call 01733 888888 or email enquiries@buckles-law.co.uk.

Health & Safety

When the government guidelines allow for our staff to return to the offices we shall do so. In preparation for that day, we are putting in place at each office location health and safety measures to ensure social distancing is possible and to reduce the risk of spread of the virus. When we are permitted to return to our offices, we understand that not everyone will want to meet us in person, regardless of the formal guidance, and for this reason virtual appointments will remain available to our clients and contacts for the foreseeable future.

If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact your lawyer or our switchboard, we are here to help.

Best of health to you all.
