The Government has released several factsheets on the Building Safety Bill. We will be reviewing these and outlining how they can assist providers to prepare for the new building safety regime.
In these unprecedented times, we’d like to take this opportunity to reassure our clients that we have, and will continue to take all necessary measures to ensure that we can provide continuity of service to you during the Covid-19 outbreak. It is more important to us than ever at this challenging time that we continue working alongside you to improve lives, communities and society.
Our workforce has been working in a hybrid model since 1 September 2021 with a mix of remote and office working, meaning that our lawyers and support staff are available as normal. We are confident about our capacity to continue to deliver our services while working in the office or remotely in the interests of protecting our staff and clients, for as long as necessary. If you have a meeting scheduled with a member of staff, they will contact you in advance to arrange a suitable alternative to a face-to-face meeting. Should you have any queries, please contact us via email@example.com.
Alongside legal services, our teams are providing regular e-briefings to support our clients in response to the evolving Covid-19 situation, from employment issues to updated guidance for charities. You can access them here or by following our Twitter feed - @ACSLLP.
While our training and seminar programme is currently on hold, you can access our programme of webinars and podcasts here.
