COVID-19 – Our working arrangements

From Wednesday 4th November our clerks are all working remotely. Our priority remains safeguarding the health and wellbeing of all our barristers, staff, clients and visitors. The majority of our Members of Chambers plus other members of staff have been working remotely since March.

As we have been doing, we will continue to provide the quality of service that you rightly expect during these uncertain times and have the infrastructure in place to ensure business continuity. All barristers and members of staff have access to our secure telephone and IT technologies so there will be no difference in your ability to access our services quickly and efficiently.

We remain very much open for business. We are appearing in court in person where instructed, and continue to conduct hearings, conferences, meetings and mediations by telephone and various video conferencing platforms. We can provide separate conference rooms for all parties, and meetings can be recorded if required. We will continue to closely monitor arrangements in the courts.

We do ask that wherever possible you send us papers in digital form rather than hard copy.

Many of our barristers have also been writing about coronavirus and the impact it is having on all areas of the law. You can browse through the topics here. We have also been delivering weekly webinars on a wide variety of topics which are all available to view here.

When getting in touch, please email us in the first instance at clerks@1chancerylane.com to ensure a speedier response. If you would prefer to call us, you can find a list of the clerks’ mobile numbers here.

If you have any further questions about how we are dealing with the Covid-19 pandemic or how we can work together to help each other, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
