COVID-19 – Boodle Hatfield Approach

During the current global COVID-19 pandemic, Boodle Hatfield, is focused on protecting all of our staff and to continue to service the needs of our clients.

Here we set out Boodle Hatfield's approach to the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak as well as relevant details of our pandemic and business continuity planning. We hope it gives some reassurance that you will be able to continue working with us without interruption and that we are well prepared as a business to continue to support you.

Public Health England advice
Boodle Hatfield has a team monitoring the official advice issued by Public Health England and the government bodies on a daily basis. We are following all advice issued and ensuring all Partners and Staff understand the crucial role everyone will play in protecting against the spread of the virus, both inside and outside the office.

Business continuity
Boodle Hatfield is committed to ensuring continuity of service for Clients in the event of any disaster or business continuity event. Our Business Continuity Team meets regularly and we plan for a variety of scenarios, including a pandemic threat. We recently tested and revised our plans with an external consultant using potential risks and threats as a guide. This is helping us with our business planning at this time. Our Business Continuity plan ensures that we are able to operate effectively and provide our clients with the service they require even if the teams are required to work from home.

Working Remotely
All our lawyers and staff are currently working at home in order to keep them healthy for as long as we can and to ensure that our clients continue to receive the best service possible. We have robust and fully tested systems in place to enable people to work at home and everyone is fully contactable in the usual way by phone or by email. Please feel free to contact them at any time if you have any queries, particularly if you have any immediate business, property or personal concerns.

Post
As all our staff are working at home please only send correspondence by email with pdf attachments. This includes all service of claim forms, application notices and any other court documents and contractual notices which should be emailed to the individual(s) you usually deal with and to bh@boodlehatfield.com. If service of documents or contractual notices are only sent by post, courier, DX, or fax, we cannot, in the current circumstances, give you assurance that they will be received or dealt with. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding. We will let you know when the situation has changed.

We believe that by following the Government guidance with these measures we will be able to offer all of our clients the service they need when they themselves are facing very challenging times.

Next steps
Boodle Hatfield is continuing to monitor the Coronavirus situation on an ongoing basis and we will provide updates and useful guides on our website

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any specific questions regarding the above.
