During this time our team have strived to overcome to challenges posed by lockdowns and restrictions to provide the best possible service to our clients, and have demonstrated the various ways in which they successfully work together across our office locations and with other departments to align with our firm’s core values.
The team have put our clients first in many ways, signing wills on garden paths and going out of their way to safely deliver documents to those in isolation. The team, which spans across eight offices and different counties, with many working from home, have manged to work together to maintain client satisfaction. We thank the entire private client team for their efforts and for working tirelessly for our clients over the past year.
