Here at GN Law, we acknowledge that we remain in a pandemic regardless of whether or not the government are currently imposing restrictions on our everyday lives. We will continue to take, what we hope, is a measured and responsible approach to keep both our staff and our clients as safe as we reasonably can.

Update – 8th March 2022

With the lifting of all legal restrictions, we will continue to work in a risk assessed way; always erring on the side of caution.

Appointments at our office

Appointments are available at our offices now. Virtual meetings are also possible on Microsoft Teams.

If an office-based meeting is arranged, until the pandemic has passed, we will continue to implement the following protocol:

  1. All appointments should be arranged as far in advance as possible;
  2. Before confirming the appointment, all clients will be asked to complete a Guile Nicholas Screening Form for Office Appointments;
  3. The above form must also be completed on the day of the appointment;
  4. Clients will be requested to arrive as punctually as possible to avoid unnecessary waiting in reception and appointments will usually have to end at the designated time if there is a following appointment;
  5. On arrival, clients will be invited to sanitise their hands;
  6. While the wearing of a mask is not mandatory, we are sensitive to the preferences of both our clients and our staff and if either our clients or our staff express a preference for the wearing of masks in a meeting, both our clients and our staff are encouraged to do so. This issue should be discussed in advance of the meeting;
  7. There should be no shaking of hands;
  8. After each attendance our staff will wipe down all surfaces/pens with antiseptic wipes and wash their hands immediately afterwards.

Please rest assured that an equally rigorous protocol will be followed by the legal representative you will be meeting with.

Appointments away from the office

All such appointments will be individually risk assessed and acted on accordingly – much of the above (in terms of screening and sanitisation) will apply.

Remote appointments by video conferencing or telephone

This continues to be an effective and efficient method of communication, taking instructions and giving advice.

Currently we are using Microsoft Teams for video conferencing.

In terms of contacting your legal representative, all our staff can be contacted directly via the main office number or their direct dials where applicable.

We thank you for your understanding in these challenging times.
