At Forbes Solicitors, we are keen to reassure clients that we have robust business continuity measures in place to protect and maintain service levels so we can continue to support our clients.
The health and welfare of our colleagues and clients is paramount. We will continue to monitor the most current Government guidance to ensure the wellbeing of our people. We already operate an agile workforce, which means the majority of our teams are able to work from home - and this is tried and tested.
To support efforts to increase social distancing, we are also working with clients to align with their own policies on non-essential travel and limiting human contact. We are set-up to run meetings via video or conference calls and will continue to do so to keep business moving. We can and will continue to accommodate face to face meetings where requested.
With our own events programme, we're adopting a digital mindset and developing alternative formats which we will share in coming weeks. In the meantime, our teams are taking a common sense approach to existing event commitments we were due to attend.
We are following Government advice on avoiding catching and spreading the virus and if required, we will, of course, advise any employees displaying specified symptoms to self-isolate.
Despite the increase in language around isolation, we're proud to be part of a firm and business community that is pulling together.
If you have any questions, please contact 0800 689 3206 and we'll get straight back to you.
