COVID 19 Update

 

The Coronavirus outbreak is creating difficult situations for businesses in all industries, and the legal profession is no different. As you may know, it is usual practice in the legal industry for practitioners to meet with clients in person to obtain instructions and sign or execute legal documents.  This practice may (likely) be affected by precautionary directives issued by the Australian Government, and may otherwise simply no longer be suitable for clients.

 

We would like assure our highest commitment to the needs of our clients in this uncertain time, while acknowledging and respecting the difficulties that this pandemic may (likely) present on people’s ability to engage in the traditional ‘legal processes’.

 

As of this week, we will be transitioning foreshadowed face-to-face meetings to online or telephone conferencing.  Our staff are able to communicate via most online platforms, including FaceTime, Skype, Zoom, WeChat, Google Hangouts and other platforms as may be necessary.

 

We understand that there are some matters which cannot be attended to via telephone or remote conferences, such as notary matters.  In these cases, we confirm our full commitment to all health and safety directives issued by the authorities. Alternative arrangements will be made on a case-by-case basis.

 

For limited face-to-face meetings, we will be enforcing recommended social distancing practices.  Our conference spaces are also sanitized after each use.

 

Our staff are monitoring the situation closely and we will be updating our practice and policies as necessary.

 

Bambrick Legal remains available for all new legal enquiries.  If we currently represent you in an ongoing matter, you can rest assured that it is ‘business as usual’ in the office.

 

If you are in quarantine or isolation and would like to revisit your estate planning, we encourage you to contact us to arrange a phone or video call appointment.  We are able to guide you through the process of updating or executing a will at home.  We are also able to provide advice regarding the creation of informal or provisional wills as may be necessary.

 

We thank all clients – deeply – for their continued patience and support in these uncertain times.
