We are sorry but our current policy is that we are unable to welcome visitors to our office at this time save for those with a pre-arranged appointment and essential service personnel.  If you are visiting our office for an appointment please read our guidance for visitors here.  

Telephone appointments/video calls can be arranged via Skype, Facetime, Zoom etc. In some instances our lawyers may be able to attend you at your home with strict social distancing measures.

Documents can be put through our branch letterboxes but please be aware our personnel are unable to talk to you through an open door. 

Please do not enter our premises if you are experiencing recent onset of:

New continuous cough and/or
High temperature and/or
Loss or change to your sense of smell or taste

 

Our hours of business are 9am to 5pm from Monday to Friday if you wish to speak to us.  Outside these times an answering service will take your call and ensure that your message is passed to the right person.

Property Transactions 

We are committed to delivering a service to our clients within Government guidelines.  But some other organisations upon which we rely may still be closed or operating differently and that may affect your transaction.  If you are involved in a property transaction we recommend that you read the Government’s latest advice which can be found here

Identity and cyber security

Although we usually like to meet our clients in person at some stage so as to provide assurance of identity we do have online facilities to check scanned identity documents.  We do require some additional information but nothing that should not be readily accessible.

We have technical measures in place to ensure the security of our systems and the data they hold.  We regularly train our staff on cyber risks and the precautions required when working from home.

We may have higher levels of absence than normal.  Colleagues are covering work as necessary so you still always have a named lawyer to speak to about your matter.  Appropriate email auto reply messages will be sent giving alternative lawyers to contact.  Please pay careful attention to these and re-send your email to an alternative address if so requested.  Email communication is very much preferred but if that is not possible, please ring.

We are confident that, by taking this approach, we can ensure that public health is protected and that your matter is dealt with as efficiently as possible.
