To reassure all of our clients, we are still open for business with most of our staff working remotely. We have the facilities in place to provide meetings either by video or telephone.
Our offices are only allowing visitor access to the building in exceptional circumstances. This is strictly by appointment and when no alternative is available.
Where possible, please scan and email documents to us. Alternatively, if documents need to be delivered by hand, please label them clearly with the intended recipient and post them into one of our secure letterboxes. These are checked frequently during the working day. To minimise contact, we will not accept documents handed to staff and we will not provide receipts.
If you would like to make an appointment, please either speak to the member of staff dealing with your enquiry or for new appointments call your local office.
Rest assured we have undertaken a full Covid-19 risk assessment and all relevant safety measures have been put into place.
Guidance to visitor appointments can be found here
