Coronavirus Working Arrangements

Following a detailed risk assessment, Chambers premises is now open with limited staff. Practice management team members are continuing to work from home and are ready to assist with bookings and other enquiries. 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 now be able to regularly receive and process post. We continue to request however that all documents are sent electronically going forward and all payments of fees via BACS.

Many of our barristers are also still 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.

If anyone has any concerns or questions they are invited to email covidcomms@gcnchambers.co.uk, and we 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. To this end we encourage everyone to familiarise themselves with our Risk Assessment, which can also be found on our website.

We are lawyers but we are members of our community first and foremost. We have created this dedicated section of our website to assist legal practitioners and any person who may be struggling during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. We hope you find it useful. If you feel that anything is missing, contact us and we will add/update pages as best we can.
