COVID-19

During the new lockdown we will continue to work remotely wherever possible. However, our offices will be open should it be necessary to visit to deliver documents or to see any of our solicitors. Please make sure that you make an appointment for any visit as we need to limit the number of visitors to our offices at any one time and ensure that they and our staff are safe.

Where possible we will arrange virtual meetings by video conference/telephone with our clients and others when appropriate. If you want to talk to one of our solicitors or need legal advice please contact us and we will do all that we can to assist. Please bear with us if it takes a little longer than usual to reply to you.

Anyone visiting us at our offices will need to wear a face covering and follow all the government guidance regarding social distancing.
