A careful return to Price Street for Myers & Co Solicitors

 

Following a detailed risk assessment and the Government’s guidelines on how best to get our office working environment back to a new normal safely, the team at Myers & Co has been busy preparing to return to the office in Price Street. We are pleased to announce that it will reopen to clients on Monday 13 July.

‘The wellbeing of our staff and our clients is our utmost priority,’ says Managing Director Stephen Myers. ‘While remote working has been working well for many, it does not suit every client and so we have been keen to accommodate those clients who do want a face-to-face meeting. We have also developed processes for witnessing and signing documents, such as a will, when a client is shielding and cannot leave home.’

Each client’s circumstances are unique, and we will do everything practical to accommodate each person’s needs, if we can.

Remote meetings

Where possible, we encourage clients to communicate by telephone or any of the online communication channels (Zoom, Skype, WhatsApp etc).

Face to face meetings by appointment

For those clients who would like to come into the office to discuss matters face-to-face we have put a protocol in place to keep you and our team safe.  This covers:

  • before you set out;
  • on arrival at the building where the door is now kept locked;
  • when you enter;
  • in our meeting room; and
  • when you leave.

When we confirm a meeting, we will send out the detailed protocol.

Sadly, you will no longer be able to enjoy coffee and the newspaper in our comfortable waiting room – or the sweets which we know many visitors used to enjoy.

Home visits

For clients who are shielding at home, if we need to see you for a signature then we can come to you and are experienced at managing the documents safely.

For more information

Please speak to your usual solicitor and explain your circumstances, and we will do everything practical to accommodate you.
