Coronavirus update

All four Hempsons offices remain covered with a skeleton staff. All other staff are working remotely. Our lawyers, management and support staff all have access to secure cloud based technologies enabling them to work effectively as a team from home, largely as they would in the office environment. Our practice and document management systems, phone, email and video conferencing are also available remotely, enabling “business as usual” on a remote basis should that be required.

The skeleton office staff will ensure post, scanning and other tasks which need a physical presence in the office continue to be dealt with in order that we may continue to provide a service to our clients. We are reviewing this constantly to make sure we have the right support in the office at all times. In addition our phone switchboard has been transferred to a remote team to ensure that calls will be handled as normal.

If you have any concerns or queries please do not hesitate to contact our Senior Partner Chris Morris or our Head of Client Services, Graeme Trigg.
