Message from our Senior Partner

The Covid-19 pandemic is an unprecedented and fast-moving situation. The challenges we face nationally, as well as individually and within our families and communities, are immense.

As a firm, our focus is on the health and wellbeing of our people and on making sure that we can continue to service the needs of our clients to our usual standards of responsiveness. Times of great uncertainty also present new business challenges and we will support our clients through these.

It is vital that all our responses are proportionate and responsible. As you would expect our decisions are informed by government guidance and feedback from the market.

The firm will function on a fully remote basis from now until the end of the lockdown period. We have the systems and technology to remain fully connected and available to our clients and each other as this situation develops.

We are confident in our resilience, adaptability and the ability of our clients, our firm and our people to rise to the challenges that we are seeing.

Open communication is vital as we all work hard to find ways in which we can help each other over the next weeks and months - we would always be pleased to hear from you. We will do our best to keep you abreast of the fast moving developments and provide you with relevant advice and recommendations. 

We are encouraged by the expressions of support that we have received over recent days from clients, law firms with which we work internationally and others and look forward to continuing to work together.
