Covid-19: What Measures are Bakerlaw Taking?

 

19 July 2021 - we are open for business

In keeping with Government guidance, our office is open to clients, provided an appointment has been booked in advance. We require all clients to wear a face covering for the duration of their visit (unless medically exempt). Before attending the office, please read our COVID-19 Visitor Guide for full details of the measures we have in place.
 
We are still able to deal with client matters remotely where that is your preference. We are able to hold meetings and take new instructions remotely via telephone or videoconferencing. We can also undertake ID Verification and/or document signatures electronically so that, whatever legal services you need for yourself, your family or your business, there is no need for any face-to-face contact and virtually everything can be done from your home. Please contact us for details.
 
BakerLaw is monitoring the situation closely and we are keeping a close eye on government recommendations whilst making sure this means minimal disruption to our clients and staff. We are following the guidance issued by Public Health England, which can be found using the following link: https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/coronavirus-covid-19-list-of-guidance.
