Whilst the provision of our services can be provided seamlessly (including face to face meetings) by electronic means, there are certain circumstances that require a physical meeting. This may be the case for meetings with exising clients and new clients. For the safety and well-being of our clients and our colleagues, we have in place robust safety measures to ensure that we can conduct physical meetings, where necessary, and protect the health and safety of our clients and our colleagues during these times. Where physical meetings are unavoidable, we will set out the guidance and requirements to our clients on or before arrival. When in the office, we are able to ensure distancing of two metres at all times, we have supplies of hand gel, gloves and masks for optional use whilst in the office and perspex screens in our receptions and meeting rooms.
The majority of our staff are continuing to work away from the office and we have a rota and strict rules in place as to the number of staff in our offices at any given time to limit our physical staff interaction. As you would expect, we have rigorous cleaning and internal hygiene procedures in place. Strict protocols are in place across all our offices.
During these times, we must limit physical interaction as far as possible and our systems include other measures such as the provision of single use pens, avoiding shaking hands and offering tea or coffee etc..
Thank you all for your understanding and support.
Philip Cockram, Managing Partner
