In light of the recent news and uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, please find below Lux’s approach to any new or existing matters.
Our general approach is to keep in step with the advice and guidance we receive from the relevant Government authorities, including the Ministry of Justice.
We understand that these are uncertain times, however please rest assured that Lux have the ability to work remotely and therefore this will not affect how we are able to act and progress your matter on your behalf.
In the interests of the health and wellbeing of our clients, we have taken the decision to temporarily suspend face to face meetings and instead meetings can be held by way of a telephone or video conference. If you wish to make an appointment with any of our experienced and specialist solicitors, you may continue to do so with initial consultations being held by way of a telephone or video conference.
The guidance from the Ministry of Justice in respect of court hearings is that whilst the we are in the current phase of the coronavirus outbreak, the business of the courts and tribunals continues. Any changes to individual hearings will be communicated to those affected in the usual way, usually by email and/or phone. Of course, the Government’s advice regarding self-isolating if you are exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 still stands; if you are unwell or self-isolating then you cannot attend court and an adjournment of your hearing will be sought.
We will be reviewing the Government’s response to the current outbreak and will provide you with an update when new advice is available.
If you have any questions in light of the above, please do not hesitate to contact the office on 02920 197203.
