As COVID-19 continues to impact the global community, Hewitsons would like to update our clients on the steps we have taken to ensure business continuity and the well-being of our clients and members of the firm.
We are following remote working practices across our offices. This means that your regular contacts are more than likely now to be working from home and only using our offices for short meetings or other support. All of us will continue to be in full contact and accessible by phone, Skype, email and so on.
Our offices will remain open, albeit with a reduced workforce present onsite to facilitate ongoing business where is remains essential for us to do so. Beyond that, as is now in line with businesses across the UK, we are operating a policy by which we are limiting members of the firm to only undertake meetings and other activities that are absolutely essential.
We are committed to maintaining business as usual and ensuring our clients continue to receive the highest quality service without disruption. Our experienced legal teams are on standby to assist clients with legal requirements including to advise on the legal challenges this unprecendented situation is presenting; please get in touch with your usual contact to discuss any particular challenges we can assist with.
We have also identified a number of key areas that organisations should be considering now as listed below.
