COVID-19 Information Hub

Coronavirus

Welcome to our Covid-19 Information Hub

Supporting our clients and contacts impacted by Coronavirus, providing focused, practical and pragmatic advice.

In these uncertain times, we want to let all our clients and contacts know we are still very much open for business and are here to offer you support and guidance.

Although we re-opened our offices to the public on 1st September 2021, it is imperative that all client meetings in our offices are pre-booked with the lawyer dealing with your matter.  This is to protect the health and safety of our colleagues, as well as visitors to our premises while we continue to manage the daily challenges of living with Covid-19.

Our partners and colleagues would also appreciate it if all visitors to our offices could wear a face mask during their visit and use the hand sanitiser that is available in our meeting rooms.  Our colleagues will continue to wear face masks while working in the office and when meeting clients in order to keep everyone as safe as possible.

For clients who may not yet feel comfortable attending meetings in our offices, our lawyers are able to offer a variety of methods of communication, including home visits, various video conferencing platforms, email and telephone.  Please speak to your lawyer if you would prefer to communicate in a different way than meeting face to face.

Message from our Managing Partner, Rhodri Davey:
