It’s Business as Usual Here at Gullands

We would like to reassure all of our clients that we are open for business as usual. Of course we are closely monitoring the advice from all relevant authorities but we have, and have always had, a robust business continuity plan. Our staff are equipped and capable of working either in our offices or remotely, which is well tested. As a result we are more than capable of carrying out our normal tasks and continuing to provide you with a full and professional service. Of course the current situation regarding COVID-19 does mean that some parties that we do business with are unable to complete things as quickly as usual, but we are here to do everything we can to make your legal transaction proceed without unnecessary interruption.

We are asking all clients not to attend either of our offices. We will no longer be facilitating face to face meetings until further notice. We can facilitate telephone, Skype or Facetime meetings. If you attend our offices, please note that you may be turned away and have a wasted journey. Any urgent or original documents should be sent to us by post/recorded delivery or scanned, whenever possible. If circumstances are exceptional please speak to the fee earner with conduct of your case. Aside from the above, we continue to operate in the usual manner so you will still be able to contact us by email and telephone.

Should any of our staff be unwell or unable to work we have an open file system which allows other team members to take over matters with the minimum of disruption. 
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us on the usual numbers 01622 678341
