We continue to respond the Coronavirus (Covid-19) situation and to ensure that we do all we can to keep our people, clients, friends and families safe.  We are open for business and operations are running smoothly, however we are continuing to do all we can to limit physical contact and to contain the traffic in to our working premises in Lincoln’s Inn to a safe working minimum.  We continue to be open for business, in as normal a way as we can make it.  Most barristers, practice managers and the rest of our staff team are still working remotely and making the best use of technology to deal effectively with work and meet our clients’ needs.

You can call us on +44 (0)20 7242 2523. Our normal telephone system is still operating and our usual friendly team is available to help.

We have a specific Covid-19 Resources section to assist with the specific issues which the coronavirus pandemic is causing across all sections of society and business.  For ease, see a summary page of all contacts during this unusual time.
