Coronavirus notice

The welfare of our clients and staff is our top priority. In line with the return to a tiered system of lockdown restrictions, effective as of Wednesday 2 December 2020, and the changes to the categorisation of regions, arrangements concerning our offices are as follows:

Tier 2: CambridgeLondon, and Peterborough

Most of our teams continue to work from home and remain available for contact by telephone and videoconferencing appointments.

Client appointments may be made on the same basis as they were prior to the second national lockdown, namely:

  • All meetings and appointments will be conducted by telephone or video call where possible;
  • Where remote meetings are not possible, they may be held in the office on a pre-arranged basis only.

Tier 3:  Nottingham and Stamford

Tier 3 areas are subject to tighter general restrictions and our staff are encouraged to work from home where at all possible.

  • All meetings and appointments will be conducted by telephone or video call where possible;
  • Where it is not possible to conduct a client meeting remotely, they may be held in the office on a pre-arranged basis only .

In line with Government guidance, we have made arrangements to minimise risk by limiting access to the premises and the duration of meetings, and observe social distancing rules. For anyone attending our offices for an appointment who has the NHS Track and Trace app, a QR code will be made available for you to scan. If you have not already downloaded the app, we will ask you to provide a contact telephone number.

As and when the guidance changes, we will update this message. If you don’t have your contact’s number or are unsure who you need to speak to, please call 01733 888888 or email enquiries@buckles-law.co.uk.

Health & Safety

At each office location we have put in place health and safety measures to ensure social distancing is possible and to reduce the risk of spread of COVID-19. A COVID-19 risk assessment has been carried out and we can confirm our offices comply with the government’s guidance on managing the risk of COVID-19, see our certificate here.

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

Please be assured that we remain available and able to provide a full service irrespective of office access and we are following industry guidance. We provide a full explanation here.
