COVID – 19 UPDATE

5th June 2020

We would like to take the opportunity to update our clients on arrangements in light of the easing of some government restrictions surrounding Covid-19. Interim remote working practices have been in place since Monday, 16th March. In light of the easing of some restrictions from Monday, 8th June 2020 and in line with Government and Public Health advice our offices will reopen to the public but with certain restrictions in place. Our office will be open with a limited number of personnel on the ground to facilitate ongoing business and appointments.  We would ask clients not to attend at the office unannounced and wherever possible to continue to send requests and documentation by way of email. Attendance at the office will be by appointment only, to ensure the safety of both our staff and clients and to ensure proper sanitisation can be put in place between meetings and all social distancing requirements can be met. In addition, protective screens have been put in place in our reception area and meeting rooms to guarantee the continued safety of employees and clients and to ensure that face to face meetings can be recommenced at the earliest opportunity.

  We remain committed to continuing to provide all of our clients with an excellent service in the forthcoming weeks and will ensure that clients continue to receive the high quality of service we pride ourselves on.  We endeavor to ensure there are no delays caused by these changes and we will continue to tailor services and availability to ensure that clients’ needs are met during these unprecedented times.

The Law Courts are presently dealing with urgent applications only, however the situation is ever evolving and interim measures are being put in place in the Courts to minimize numbers in attendance. In the circumstances, we would ask clients with court dates in the coming weeks, to contact us prior to attending Court, so that we can advise you on what if any steps you need to take. If your case has been affected by the Courts closures, we will let you know your new court date as soon as possible and once received from the Court Services.

The health and safety of our employees and clients alike remains paramount to us and we are pleased to advise that our experienced solicitors continue to be available not only in person, but also by way of telephone, technological and video conference to assist and advise our clients.
