Covid-19 (Coronavirus)

How we are currently operating

We are very much available and happy to assist. In normal circumstances, many of our staff work from home, using secure online systems to conduct business by phone and email. Obviously most of our staff are doing so currently and you can continue to email or call us as normal.

In place of face-to-face meetings, we are very happy to arrange scheduled telephone or video meetings and are finding these work well. Email or call us so that we can discuss how best we can help you.

Please bear in mind that the reduced staff presence at our branches means we can only see clients by pre-arranged appointment where this is important for the conduct of a matter.

Please call or email using the buttons below so that we can discuss how best we can assist you. In the overwhelming majority of most cases, we will be able to progress matters without meeting you.

Public Health England guidance

Our overall approach is to follow the guidance issued by Public Health England (PHE), which can be found using the following link:

https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/coronavirus-covid-19-list-of-guidance.

If we do arrange to meet, we ask you to follow PHE guidance concerning:

  • thorough and frequent hand washing
  • coughing and sneezing into tissues and disposing of them
  • avoiding touching your face

We also ask you to observe wider PHE guidance concerning possible self-isolation if you display symptoms of Covid-19, have been in close contact with others displaying symptoms or have recently returned to the UK from certain other countries.
