SC&W Coronavirus Response

During these worrying times, we are here to help you and your business come through this crisis in the best shape possible.

The priority for us is and will always be the health and wellbeing of our colleagues, clients and our wider networks. We have reviewed our business continuity plan to ensure it is robust and includes an effective response to the current situation. We are planning for all scenarios and are working hard to protect our clients and the community in which we live and work, by following the rules and guidance now in place. We are closely monitoring the evolving situation in order to provide our clients with the best possible service with the minimum of disruption.

We have put in place systems to allow all our colleagues to work from home in order to comply with government advice. As a modern and forward-thinking firm, we have the technology and equipment in place to enable our teams to continue to provide our usual high level of service.

Contacting us

Please continue to get in touch with your individual lawyers through whichever method you usually use. Our IT systems are, by design, extremely up to date and allow seamless remote working.

Our offices at Wells Street are closed and therefore we have made alternative arrangements regarding postal and DX services. We would ask that all written communications be sent by email if possible during this period.

If you are intending to send large bundles or volumes of papers by post or DX, please contact either the relevant fee earner or our main office number (020 7269 5120) before sending.

Meetings / Conferencing

Our office is closed but we remain available to assist by way of telephone or video conferencing.

Courts and Tribunals

At the time of writing the Civil Courts and Tribunals are still functioning but most are hearing only urgent business and hearings are being dealt with by telephone or video. We will continue to attend hearings in this way until the guidance changes.

We understand that this is a difficult time for us all on an individual and personal level, but also for businesses, so please get in touch if we can do anything to assist you.
