With the rapid spread of Covid-19, the Government has rightly told people to stay at home unless one of the four exceptions arise. Hopefully this will slow or even stop...
Whilst the detail surrounding the virus remains largely unknown, one thing is clear – we are all interconnected. Our behaviour impacts on the health and wellbeing of our communities, we all have a duty to safeguard the vulnerable. This is our priority.
In the wake of the escalating spread of COVID-19 infections and the Government’s recent recommendations, we have updated our business continuity response to ensure that the health of our staff, clients and the wider public is protected and that we continue to provide you, our clients, with a first class service.
Please note that in the interests of public safety in light of the growing rate of infection, the firm took the decision on 23rd March to close the physical doors to the offices. We remain open for business and here for our clients in every other respect. All of our staff are working 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
All of our staff are set up to work from home. They are contactable on their usual numbers and email addresses. Where possible we ask that documents are scanned and emailed to us rather than posted.
We anticipate that demand for our services will fluctuate and, in circumstances where departments see an increase, we will redeploy staff from quieter services to busier services to meet this need.
Often when clients require our legal services, they are already under quite some emotional strain. In these extra-testing times we are working hard to ensure we provide the same great service to our clients, whilst placing the wider public health at the top of our agenda.
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.
