Coronavirus Working Arrangements

Dear clients, colleagues and friends of Garden Court North,

We would like to provide a further update regarding our arrangements during the coronavirus outbreak.

In response to the latest Government announcement, the premises of Chambers will be closed at 5pm on Tuesday 24 March 2020.

The Practice Management team will continue to be fully operative, with all staff working remotely from home until further notice. Contact details remain the same and can be found on our contact page. Our business hours continue to be 9am to 6pm on Monday to Thursday and 9am to 5:30pm on Fridays.

We will not in the circumstances be able to regularly receive and process post. We request that all documents are sent electronically going forward and all payments of fees via BACS.

Many of our barristers are working from home and we are using technology such as Skype for Business and Microsoft teams to deal with hearings remotely where appropriate, and to stay in touch virtually.

Please check our coronavirus (COVID-19) section for updates on what is happening in our practice areas, and sources of information and support.

If anyone has any concerns or questions they are reminded to contact a member of our team, who will be happy to assist. The safety of all here at Garden Court North, clients and colleagues alike, as well as our continuing dedication to pursuing people’s rights through justice, remain our highest priorities.
