We are taking various measures to look after our clients, colleagues and others in our family law community during the COVID-19 pandemic. We want to let you know how we are working, how best to stay connected and how we can help:
How we are working. We remain committed to supporting all of our clients. In line with the latest Government advice, all colleagues in our Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow offices are working remotely. Please be reassured that we have all the necessary business continuity measures in place to be able to support you. We are working our usual business hours and you can to reach us as you would normally.
Staying connected. There are plenty of ways in which we are able to stay in touch. You can email each of our solicitors using the email addresses found under the profiles on our webpage or call them as usual using their direct line. Simply click the tab for the office location you would usually deal with and you will be able to see the individual profiles for each of our solicitors in that location. If you don’t already have an existing Brodies contact, please feel to complete and submit our Get in Touch enquiry below, email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org or ring the individual you would like to contact. We are able to receive emails and calls as we would if we were working from the office and we are used to remote working already. We are lucky enough to have access to Skype, Teams, Facetime and Zoom. We can set up a meeting with you online, we can collaborate online, conduct mediations online and reach out to other solicitors online. For now, please do not post anything to us in the Royal Mail or via a courier or try to have anything delivered to us without speaking to us first.
How we can help. We are continuing to work as we would normally to help our existing clients and to support any new people in need of advice. We are providing regular updates on the impact of the up-to-date Government advice on family law issues and how we are adapting our practices. Our ethos is to adopt a solution-orientated approach to the advice we provide and that will continue to be the case in these unprecedented circumstances. Our Court system in Scotland is adapting to the present situation and we are in constant communication across the firm with the Scottish Courts services about any updates or changes. For all those people we are already looking after, we will be in contact with you if any of those changes affect you directly.
