Covid-19 | Continuity and support for your business

Covid-19 | Continuity and support for your business

Our flexible ways of working mean that our people are fully accessible as usual and have everything they need to work remotely.

In times of uncertainty, like these, you can take comfort in the fact that our people are here to support you; working alongside you, in life and business. Our mission to help you meet your ambitions goes unchanged and we remain steadfast in helping you navigate the complexities that the next week, month or year throws at us. Together, let’s keep the UK moving forward.

Continuity & Support
The on-going developments have reaffirmed our commitment to the safety and wellbeing of our people, our clients and our visitors. This will always remain our number one priority – pandemic, or no pandemic. In light of the recent updates, we continue to take suitable precautions, including:

  • Advising all visitors to our offices that if they have travelled from any designated ‘lockdown areas’ or ‘special care zones’ in the last 14 days they will be unable to enter our offices or meet with our people face-to-face
  • Following up-to-date government guidelines for self-isolation, including the latest recommendation that any team members displaying coronavirus symptoms, however mild, stay at home for at least seven days to protect others
  • Wherever possible offering alternatives to face-to-face meetings, such as phone or video conference
  • Providing our people with NHS advice on hygiene and continuing our regular office cleansing.

Following government advice, we have also postponed all face-to-face networking events planned for March and April, and will rearrange these shortly. Wherever possible, learning events will now take place online. I encourage you to review and register for one of our webinars.

You can also contact the events team if you’re unsure about the status of an upcoming event or training session.

Moving forward
Like you, we’re keeping a close eye on coronavirus and don’t foresee any changes to the continuity of our service to you. If you have any questions, need specific legal support in relation to the coronavirus or any other matter; I encourage you to get in touch with your team today. As always, we remain committed to our people and our clients.

For general business advice, you can visit our dedicated coronavirus resource hub or attend our upcoming webinar series about the impact of coronavirus on your business.

I will be in touch if anything changes. In the meantime, take care.
