With government guidance about steps to control the Covid virus developing, we want to explain our current arrangements. Our building remains open for business. We are taking sensible precautions to minimise the risks of Covid 19 for visitors, barristers and staff. Our meeting rooms have been configured to facilitate socially-distanced conferences, round table meetings and mediations. If you intend to visit us, please let us know that you will be coming, and remember to wear a mask.
Our clerking and administrative teams continue to work in Covid secure “bubbles”, both in chambers and from home. They are though, all within our seamless communications network, so that we can sustain our usual standards of service. Please continue to send briefs or papers to the clerking team electronically whenever possible. If you need to send hard copies please liaise with the team first..
Our barristers will conduct cases in whatever way the court directs- by actual court attendance, by video or by phone. In the same way we will hold meetings in the manner that works best for you- video, phone or in-person. Our witness suite provides a secure and comfortable environment for parties who need to be with their barrister during remote court hearings.
As circumstances and official guidance change we will continue to update this message.
We remain committed to maintaining our high standards and hope you are still keeping safe and well.
