COVID-19 Legal Implications

The Civil Courts continue to operate although with a marked increase in the use of video conference. It has also been possible to undertake mediations electronically where the parties have the facilities to do so. Our disputed Wills and Court of Protection Teams are therefore able, in most cases, to continue to deal with and progress matters in spite of the lockdown. Visit the COVID-19 page.
