Corona virus ( covid-19) : With recent announcements from government asking us all to socially distance and take extra precautions to try prevent the spread of this virus we have decided to implement a few changes. Firstly our staff all have families, some with school age children, we are equipped to allow our staff to work from home should the need to self isolate occur if schools and the like are shut. We are also asking our clients who may be ill or displaying any flu like symptoms to not attend our offices, we can offer telephone or skype conferences to cover most situations and are considering whether we implement this strategy across all consultations for the short term. We have also implemented a cleaning regime to ensure that office surfaces are wiped down regularly. To assist us in managing the traffic in our offices we ask that all clients call before attending to ensure it is appropriate to do so as we may have limited staff in the actual office if isolation is required and we are wanting to limit the number of people in the office at any one time. At this point the courts have not suspended personal appearances and we will be attending courts this week for current matters and will advise if this changes. It is business as usual for us right now and we will work with our clients wherever possible to ensure matters continue to progress despite what looks like a very disruptive period ahead.
