Fenners Family: working for families during the crisis

The Family Group at Fenners is now working remotely. Our barristers, clerks and the administrative team are now based at home. Our barristers are attending hearings by video and telephone as arranged by the courts. Hearings in local courts are now taking place primarily by Skype for Business and we are working actively with the courts to ensure that cases, including Final Hearings,  can continue to be heard. For this to happen the courts expect us all to be flexible. Dan Messenger recently acted in a 4 day final hearing where all participants- parents, witnesses, lawyers and the judge- were in different remote locations.

We are happy  to facilitate video conferences and meetings  through Zoom or Microsoft Team.

Many of you attend the regular training events we organize. We are not anticipating face to face events taking place for several months now. We are hoping to set up a series of webinars instead to cover both Public and Private Law. These will be CPD accredited and details will follow shortly.
