In line with the most recent requirements set out by the Government, we have reviewed our operations and are pleased to confirm that we will remain operational throughout lockdown 3.0. Our staff remain accessible and ready to seamlessly help you navigate your legal issues – whether via phone, video call or email.
We do, however, request anyone attending our office via the reception or meeting rooms do so by pre-appointment only until further notice. We would remind anyone attending our premises by pre-arrangement that they must, by law, wear a face mask.
In line with our risk assessment, a skeleton staff will remain working in our Theatre Street premises to maintain operations. This will be in line with the required measures including enhanced cleaning and social distancing. The remainder of our staff will be working from home throughout this third lockdown.
Managing Partner Dawn Parkes commented: “We enter the third lockdown with a glimmer of hope for the future given the roll out of the Covid vaccine nationally. We are again in a position where we must ask our staff and clients to be flexible, resilient and to work with us through these challenging circumstances. Given the increased transmission rates of the new variant of the virus, we would ask all clients to choose Covid secure communication methods via phone, video calls and email with face to face meetings arranged in advance so we can continue to maintain a safe environment.”
If you do need to attend the office or a face to face meeting, please liaise with your Hatch Brenner contact to confirm the details. Please do not attend the office if you are unwell. In line with the most up to date guidance:
If you have coronavirus symptoms:
- a high temperature
- a new, continuous cough
- a loss of, or change to, your sense of smell or taste
Get a test and stay at home.
We are here to support you and your families and businesses during this challenging time. If you have a legal matter and would like to speak to the team about how we can help you, please call 01603 660 811, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
