Leathes Prior would like to reassure our clients and referrers that the firm have a robust business continuity plan in place to deal with the impacts of COVID-19. Our number one priority is the safety and wellbeing of both our clients and our people.
We are staying well informed of the developing news (and indeed our employment lawyers are very busy assisting clients with their own position), following the advice and recommendations from the Government very closely indeed. We are striving to take the right decisions at the right time.
Our people are working from home where possible, with the offices operated by an essential, skeleton staff. However, we are committed to ensuring that we continue to provide the best possible service to our clients during this challenging time, and we do not anticipate any material reduction in service levels. You will still be able to instruct us across all areas of the business, either by contacting our lawyers directly using the telephone or email contact details set out on our website (or their email footers if you are already in contact with them), or by contacting our Client Care Team in the usual way either on 01603 610911 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
At the current time (and until advised otherwise) our offices do remain open for our skeleton staff and, whilst all clients are encouraged to attend meetings remotely, if in exceptional circumstances a face to face meeting is required, then our lawyers will make the necessary arrangements. In order to protect the limited numbers of people still operating in our offices, we have appropriate safeguards in place.
We are very aware that these are testing times and we are all in unchartered waters. We will continue to respond to the situation, keeping our clients well-informed and protected at every step. Please do refer to the Government website for the latest guidance for you, your businesses and your loved ones at:
We would like to thank you all for your support and wish you all the best in dealing with this extremely difficult period. We will do all we can to help and together we will get through this.
The Partners of Leathes Prior.
