These are very unsettling times for everyone. The COVID-19 pandemic has had an unprecedented impact on all of our lives, and it’s not clear when this will end. In the meantime, life goes on: people have the same problems and need the same help as they did before.
Fortunately, Livingstone Brown remains fully open for business. We’re still here to help, whatever the issue. All of our solicitors and support staff are working hard to get the best possible outcome for clients.
To comply with Government guidance, we’re trying to avoid face to face meetings and to cut down the use of physical letters. Instead, we’re speaking to clients by phone or video and sending messages by text or email. This is usually easier for clients in any event.
If you’re not very good with technology, there’s no need to worry. If you have the internet, we can easily set up a video call. If you don’t, we can speak on the phone. Most of our solicitors and support staff are working from home, but all have secure, confidential access to our client files and systems, so they can be just as productive as if they were in the office.
The courts are still open for urgent business, and we’re able to raise cases electronically where necessary.
