Exclamation mark COVID-19 and our commitment to you

Important safety information

We are open for business

We have been proud to serve our local community for over 40 years, and although it is not business as usual for most of us, we just wanted to let you know that our commitment to you remains the same.

You can talk with us by email, video consultation or telephone.

We can also offer face-to-face meetings where this is essential. If you think this is necessary, please call our office to discuss.

However, for your protection and ours, we aren’t currently able to see anyone without a prearranged appointment, so our external doors are locked.

Your solicitor

You can contact your solicitor in the usual way; by email, video platform or telephone, and you can send your documents to us via email or by post. As emails are not always secure please call us to discuss sending sensitive information.

Safety in the office

Our staff will be respecting social distancing, washing their hands regularly and wearing face masks. If you enter our office, we ask that you do the same. Please wear a face mask, use the hand sanitisers available, bring your own pen to sign documents, and complete our Covid-19 questionnaire and return it to us before your appointment.
The office will be regularly cleaned and a risk assessment has been carried out to ensure that we are following the strict Covid-19 guidelines.

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.

Thank you for your understanding and please stay safe.
