Covid-19 - Protective Measures:  Update

With Covid cases on the rise in our local community, and the NHS Track and Trace system in full operation, we have postponed our office opening until Monday 16th August.

This decision has been made to both safeguard the health of our staff and clients, but also to minimise the disruption that comes with staff having to repeatedly isolate. Staff will continue to work both from home, and at a distance from each other behind our closed doors. We will continue to see clients by appointment only. 

When clients do visit our offices for appointments, we want them to feel as comfortable as possible and so are pleased to announce that we have introduced a traffic-light lanyard system available in our Reception area. This system enables clients to choose the lanyard colour that represents the level of social distancing they are comfortable with when inside our building, allowing us to clearly see and respect our clients’ personal preferences.




We look forward to continuing to see our clients by appointment only, and to hopefully opening our doors on Monday 16th August. 

We can be contacted on 01626 772 441, or as normal for all your legal needs.

At Scott Richards, we're always here to help, whatever you need.
