COVID-19

As our Country is faced with such exceptional hardships, companies are required to adapt to the current situation that is, COVID-19. As the pandemic continues to impact the world, we would firstly like to extend our thoughts to those affected by the virus, and to thank the first responders, healthcare professionals and others who are working relentlessly to help our communities to get through this difficult time.

Changes have been made to our practice and the delivery of our services to ensure that we can continue to provide our services as best as possible whilst protecting the health of our Clients, Colleagues and Staff. Please be rest assured that our objective is to keep as close to a ‘business-as-usual’ model as possible, therefore, we have implemented measures to ensure that our workforce are able to work remotely. 

Thankfully, due to our investment in technology, we are able to work from home seamlessly. You can find out more information regarding our ability to work from home and the safety of Client data, in our recently published blog. Our phone system and emails will work as normal, and please be rest assured that someone will always be on the other end of the phone to answer your questions.

Our Team have been working relentlessly to ensure that our premises are COVID-19 secure as we are now ready to hold meetings within our office. Face to face meetings are available on an appointment only basis, where they cannot be carried out via telephone calls, email correspondence and video conferencing. We will continue to operate within our normal working hours from 9am until 5pm. If you need to contact us, there are a number of ways you can do so. To get in touch you can call our main line on 01754 897150, email us on info@hodgkinsons.co.uk, complete and submit the contact form on the right, or message us directly through our social media channels.

As our ability to operate in our normal facility is restricted, we will be opening and responding to post where possible but this may not be carried out daily depending upon the services of the Royal Mail. Due to the nature of this form of communication, longer response times may be incurred. We would like to encourage anyone who needs to send a document to us, that they do so electronically where possible.

At Hodgkinsons we have aided home working for many years, and we understand how to work to the best of our ability under such circumstances. During such times of uncertainty, we believe that we owe it to our current and perspective Clients to provide them with a consistent, reliable and professional service out of the office, as we do in the office. We will remain committed to delivering an excellent legal service which is flexible in the manner we have had to choose. Our Team will be working very hard to deal with this pandemic and to assist you in these difficult times.

If you have any questions about the information above, please call us and we will be happy to advise you on the best way to resolve your query. If you have questions regarding a scheduled appointment such as Court Hearings, Mediation and medical examinations, please call us.

We will continue to reassess the structure in which we deliver our services to you as we react to Government advice and we will ensure to keep you closely informed with our decisions. Please take care of yourself and your families, during such unprecedented times.
