Exclamation mark COVID-19 and our commitment to you

Important safety information

We are still very much open for business, and keen to help our clients, existing and new, in dealing with a whole range of legal matters.

We would be pleased to hear from you on 01689 822554, whilst the front door remains physically closed for everyone’s protection.

We offer appointments via Skype or by telephone, whilst we are not routinely offering face to face meetings.

You can contact your solicitor in the usual way, by email or telephone, and you can send your documents to us via email (rather than dropping them in or by post). As emails are not always secure please call us to discussing sending sensitive information.

Covid-19 requires all of us to alter and modify our behaviour to keep safe; the situation is constantly changing. To keep up with how we are responding to it, and also our commitment to you, please check our social media or click here.

Whilst we all adapt to the ‘new norm’ some disruption is inevitable; however, we will strive to provide you with the service that you expect from us.

Thank you for your understanding.
