In line with the Prime Minister’s announcement of a further national lockdown, we are continuing to work hard to safeguard our offices with client and staff safety as the priority.
Our offices are open to our clients, by appointment only. We will still be conducting most face to face meetings via video call or phone.
Here are some of the measures we have put in place. Please visit here for full information.

Following a check in with the Health and Safety Executive in March 2021 nothing was raised regarding COVID safety restrictions that had not already been addressed by the business.
Stroud, Gloucester and Dursley will be managed by smaller teams than usual:
The branches will be cleaned 3 x a week as a minimum, including door handles, toilets and kitchens.
Receptions will be open to people with approved appointments. An intercom system will be in place to speak with Reception and gain entry at all of our offices.
During this period, we would prefer payment by electronic bank transfer. Please provide reference number and your name when making the online payment. If this is not possible please discuss with your lawyer.
