Blake Morgan continues to closely monitor the COVID-19 situation. Our priority is to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of our staff, clients and other business contacts, as well as continuing to deliver our services.
Our existing approach to working agilely and remotely means the measures we had in place already have ensured business continuity at all times.
All of our staff from partners, lawyers, secretaries and business support teams are equipped with laptops and other essential IT equipment and are working remotely effectively. In line with the Government’s advice, we continue to emphasise the need for all of our employees to work from home, which has caused no disruption to the services we are able to provide. We maintain a skeleton staff in each location (other than London which is closed) which we review on a daily basis. Those working in the office are able to do so safely whilst observing social distancing rules.
We are confident that we have taken all necessary steps to ensure that, should we need to close any office, all client services will continue uninterrupted. We update the whole business regularly on the Government’s advice and the steps we are taking to ensure the safety of our staff and our continuing ability to provide our legal services. We continue to engage with our key suppliers in order to manage disruption risk.
We are here to help and support you during this difficult time. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch at any time or access our coronavirus guidance. We update this page regularly to ensure it reflects Government advice as this evolves.
If you have any questions or require any further information in relation to COVID-19 and business continuity, please contact your usual Blake Morgan contact.
