Our lawyers – here if you need us during coronavirus
– latest update 19 March

As at 19 March 2020, we have made the following arrangements to ensure that our clients and staff can be kept safe and supported during this difficult time.

All staff working remotely

Here for a family emergency at any time

You do not have to put up with abuse or bad behaviour, just because you are in isolation. There may also be child arrangements to discuss because of school closures and illness. We are here to help in any way we can.

When you are in a safe place, you can contact our family law team on 020 7426 0400. We will do our best to contact you as soon as possible to arrange a safe time to discuss matters.

Here for mental health and mental capacity issues

At this time of national emergency, the welfare of clients and individuals detained in hospital, deprived of their liberty or requiring advice and assistance in relation to mental capacity issues remains at the forefront of our practice. Our lawyers will continue to work throughout this period to ensure that those requiring access to justice are provided with legal help and assistance. Please contact our Mental Health and Capacity Team on 0207 426 0400. A member of our team will respond as quickly as possible.

Here for housing

During this crisis, where we are being asked to stay at home, having a safe and secure home is crucial. Our housing team continue to work throughout this period in order to ensure that if you do not have a home, or your home is under threat, or it is not safe to live in that you can access expert legal advice and representation. Please contact our Housing Team on 0207 426 0400. A member of our team will respond as quickly as possible.

We will keep you informed

There may be changes to the time and date of some court hearings and we will keep you informed if there are any changes to arrangements.

Call us – no problem is too small

If you are anxious about any aspect of your case or any family law problem, then please rest assured that we are here for you.

 

Keep well and keep safe
