Guildford Chambers response to COVID-19
Guildford Chambers continues to operate as usual and we will continue to do so taking into account government advice. We have in place a strict hygiene policy to help prevent the spread of the virus in line with UK Government recommendations
Bearing this in mind, where possible we would please ask that you send your documents electronically.
We have now put in place a number of measures in case they are needed in the coming weeks. All our barristers are able to work remotely, conferences and court hearings may be held via telephone or Skype.
In the unlikely event that we have to close Chambers’ building, procedures have been put in place to ensure calls will be answered by our clerking team on our usual number 01483 539131. However, in case of emergency mobile phone numbers of our clerks are:
Simon Morris, Senior Clerk: 07779 605502
Gavin Street, First Junior Clerk: 07780 994271
By putting in place these contingency measures we intend to continue offering as normal a service as possible throughout the duration of this unprecedented pandemic; and by working together we are confident we can find solutions to any problems arising, thereby reducing as far as possible any impact on our professional and lay clients and minimising risks to health.
Guildford Chambers is a progressive, multi-disciplinary set of barristers, uniquely positioned to provide competitive and effective advocacy for individuals and businesses in Surrey, Hampshire, Berkshire, London and the South East.
Our growing portfolio of clients value that we work with them as an extension of their team, and we endeavour to build strong and successful working relationships. We operate a system of specialist practice groups which ensure you receive the best advice and advocacy from your chosen barrister.
