SA Law is carefully monitoring the escalating coronavirus situation. We are taking appropriate actions with the wellbeing of our clients, colleagues and our wider community being foremost in our minds.
From this week we will increase home working for both lawyers and business operations staff.
Our London office will close at 5.15pm on 17th March 2020 until further notice, however our St Albans offices remain open with a skeleton team of staff. We are making arrangements to ensure that post and deliveries to the offices are dealt with.
Please note during the office closure SA Law will accept service of documents by e-mail but not by fax during this period.
Clients should be reassured that our business infrastructure fully supports remote working and as such we expect to maintain the usual high level of service. Our lawyers remain available to support you in any way we can.
For the time being our St Albans office remains open for clients only in circumstances where a visit is absolutely essential and for no more than 2 people. The recommended 6ft/2m distance will be upheld at all times and additional hygiene measures have been put in place. Other than essential visits, we advise that you do not attend in person and that we work together ‘virtually.’
We are happy to offer telephone, conferencing or video calls with our legal teams as well as staying in touch as normal via email to ensure the continued progress of cases and fulfilment of your legal objectives whilst minimising risk of spreading the virus at this time.
In the case of essential meetings in our offices, we will be asking attendees routine questions in advance about recent travel and possible exposure.
If you have any queries related to appointments, call our St Albans team on 01727 798000 send us a message via LiveChat or contact your existing legal advisor directly.
You can view all of our team members and their direct telephone or email address details here.
The safety of our clients, colleagues and our wider community is paramount, but so too is ensuring that the high level of service expected by our clients is unaffected. We believe the measures which we are taking represent the most prudent course of action to achieve that balance.
We have suspended our events and seminar programmes, but we will remain in close contact with you and provide updates as the situation evolves.
If there is anything we can do to support you in the face of the coronavirus pandemic from a legal perspective, please let us know.
Thank you for your continued support and understanding during this challenging time.
