Update, 7 April 2020
As we all adapt our working practices to inhibit the spread of the Covid-19 coronavirus, Chambers has temporarily changed the way we operate.
Our chambers’ staff and the majority of our barristers are now working from home, with access to our secure IT infrastructure. We are configured to operate remotely and are conducting client conferences through video-conferencing and telephone calls.
Our clerking team are available during normal business hours via telephone and email. At this time it is preferable that papers or documents are sent to us electronically. However if you have any difficulties in providing electronic copies please contact the clerks – it is possible that some of our members will collect papers from Chambers or receive them at their residential addresses.
If you wish to send papers directly to counsel, please ensure the relevant clerk is copied in so that the papers can be logged in the usual way.
If you have already sent papers and not received an acknowledgment, can you please contact us to ensure that we have received them.
We would request any payments to Chambers please be made electronically, as our accounts team is working remotely too. If you need to speak to a member of the fees team, please email them on Aleksandra@12oldsquare.com
We continue to accept instructions and continue to provide our full support to our clients during this unprecedented and difficult time.
