We have been following, and will continue to follow, the government’s guidance and are monitoring the situation daily as it develops.

We will continue to provide you with the legal support you or your business may require and have efficient systems in place to help minimise disruption at this difficult time.

  • Our lawyers are working from home and are contactable in the usual way by email (including law@willans.co.uk), telephone (including reception on 01242 514000) or video conferencing. You may also contact us via our website and our lawyers contact details can be found at willans.co.uk/people

  • Where documents need to be returned to us, please email or post these to us, or drop them through the letterbox.
  • We have put in place procedures for signing/witnessing documents so that we can safely assist clients who wish to, for example, make a will, or review an existing one.
  • We will keep you updated on legal guidance where possible to assist with COVID-19. You may wish to follow our news at willans.co.uk/insight/covid19.
