CORONAVIRUS
CORONAVIRUS

13 March 2020

As a firm we are continually monitoring the coronavirus outbreak, receiving daily advice from Public Health England (PHE), and the Law Society and considering what contingency measures we may need to put in place should the situation escalate. We obviously hope that such measures will not prove necessary. However, we are determined to do all we can to ensure a continuous service to all of our clients with their welfare and that of our lawyers and staff at the forefront of our minds.

We have already increased the level of our daily office cleaning and hand sanitiser, cleaning wipes, paper towels and soap are available in all the relevant areas of the firm. In addition, we have now put in place a number of measures in case they become needed in the coming weeks. These are as follows:

  • All our lawyers are able to work remotely
  • Conferences may be held via telephone, Facetime or Zoom and we can arrange access to telephone conferencing as necessary. If there is a need to rearrange meetings due to take place in the firm so that they can take place in this way, please contact us
  • Using the above technology we are able to conduct a substantial amount of our work in this way remotely (whether from the firm or off-site)
  • Our operating systems can all be accessed remotely, including our administration and telephone system
  • In the unlikely event that we have to close our building, procedures have been put in place to ensure calls will be answered by the team
  • Should you have any questions or queries, please contact one of the following directors:

Max Hope – 07973 159165

Jack Gardener – 07968 082939

Hayley Eachus – 07557 341388

Elizabeth Ford – 07941 076782

By putting in place these contingency measures we intend to continue offering as normal a service as possible throughout the duration of this unprecedented pandemic; and by working together we are confident we can find solutions to any problems arising, thereby reducing as far as possible any impact on our clients and minimising risks to health.
