Thackray Williams and COVID-19

As of 5.30pm 20/03/2020 all of our physical offices will be closed. However, Thackray Williams continues to be able to operate as usual.

In light of the unprecedented effects of Coronavirus in the UK, over the following weeks we will be constantly reviewing the latest Government advice and taking appropriate measures, as required. The health and safety of our staff, visitors and clients is our core priority and as such we have taken the decision to close our Bromley, Sevenoaks, London and West Wickham offices until further notice.

The firm has an existing infrastructure which will allow us to adapt to the changing situation and ensure ongoing business continuity. We are in a very good position to be able to continue to act on, and progress, your legal matters.

Our lawyers and support staff can work from home as usual. Our existing phone numbers, including direct dial to your solicitor, will continue to function as usual. We also have facilities to host conference and video calls in place of face-2-face meetings if required. Copies of your files and all correspondence are held digitally and can be accessed remotely via a secure off-site cloud data centre with a further back up located elsewhere in the country.

We will endeavour to meet any agreed dates for the delivery of any new or existing work. However, we cannot account for the robustness of other 3rd parties or agencies that may be required to move your matters forward. We will, of course, continue to communicate with you throughout this period but kindly request your patience in matters outside of our control.

If you are a client of the firm and you need a document signed physically or need to send us documents, we do have facilities to accommodate this. Please contact your existing lawyer to discuss this.  We do ask, however, that only essential documents are sent in non-digital format.

We will continue to monitor the rapidly evolving situation and the latest advice from the Government and Public Health England. Should our plans change in the future, to reflect new developments, we will continue to provide updates through this page on our website.

Please contact your usual client partner as appropriate should you have any questions or need to keep us informed of how to best to maintain contact with you.

We would like to thank you for your continued business and to assure you that we will do all we can to carry on as normal.
