Hardwicke continues 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.  It is now imperative that we do all we can to limit physical contact for the time being and therefore our working premises at Hardwicke Building in Lincoln’s Inn is closed.  However, Hardwicke remains open for business, in as normal a way as we can make it.  Barristers, practice managers and the rest of our staff team are working remotely and making good use of technology to reach out.

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.
