Coronavirus: Business Continuity
Now that many of the Covid pandemic restrictions have been eased across Scotland, we plan to proceed with caution as the health and wellbeing of our colleagues, clients and communities continues to be our top priority.
From Monday 9 August, we will begin opening our office receptions to visitors. Over the past months, we have taken every measure to ensure that our offices are Covid-secure and many of the measures in place will continue for the time being. We ask that visitors to the office continue to wear facemasks, adhere to one metre social distancing and use hand sanitiser provided.
As recommended by the Scottish Government, many of our colleagues will continue to work from home and therefore we have a much reduced staff presence in our offices. We recommend that pre-arranged appointments are made with your Solicitor and that virtual meetings continue to take place wherever possible.
If you have a specific question that isn’t covered in our frequently asked questions below, please contact us on 03330 430150.
Although our office receptions are open, many of our staff continue to work from home and therefore we have a much reduced staff presence in our offices. Please call us on 03330 430150 to make an appointment. Where possible, virtual meetings will take place and in person meetings will only be booked where necessary. If you turn up on the off chance that your Solicitor is available, then you may be disappointed.
All of our office receptions are open with the exception of Kirkcaldy. All reception doors will be open and unlocked during normal office hours.
Yes, you can – but please continue to wear a facemask, maintain one metre social distancing and use the hand sanitiser provided.
As recommended by the Scottish Government, many of our colleagues are continuing to work from home, so virtual meetings will continue to take place wherever possible.
We have undertaken Health and Safety Risk Assessments to ensure that we have appropriate arrangements in place if you visit our offices, these include:
- wearing a facemask unless you are exempt,
- maintain one metre social distancing,
- use hand sanitiser,
- perspex screens remain in place in public areas
- If you have a meeting which is required to take place in person, a member of our team will contact you in advance to ensure there are no Covid symptoms in your household - just another measure to make sure that we minimise risk to both our clients and staff.
Our colleagues will also be following this guidance.
Feenotes can be paid by either bank transfer, online at www.thorntons-law.co.uk/payments or by debit card payment over the phone.
