Stewart & Watson is closely monitoring the Coronavirus outbreak and we have been following the advice issued by the UK and Scottish Governments.
The health and well being of our staff, clients and other contacts is our priority and will remain so.
All of our offices have therefore been closed. That closure is meantime indefinite, pending further Government advice. We have a group of solicitors and other members of staff who are continuing to work from home.
You will still be able to contact your usual Stewart & Watson contact using the normal email address and normal office telephone number. We have to acknowledge that there may be a delay in responding to you at this time and we would ask you to bear with us until matters return to normal.
You will appreciate that we will require to respond to urgent enquiries first.
You may require to wait for a reply to your email and we would be grateful for your patience in these difficult circumstances
Please do not make repeated calls or send more than one email – this will simply slow our response times.
We are still carrying on appointments, although these will be dealt with by telephone, or, where possible, Skype. Please arrange such appointments by email to your usual contact or to firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephoning your local branch office on the usual number.
We understand that clients will be concerned to know that their affairs are being managed and we at Stewart and Watson are committed to continuing our highly regarded service to our clients to the extent possible in these most difficult and challenging circumstances.
We know the you will understand why we have had to review our working practices and we would ask everyone to cooperate with us. If you have any concerns about a current or upcoming transaction please get in touch with your usual Stewart & Watson contact . If you have a new enquiry, you can contact us at email@example.com or your local branch office by telephone.
With government advice being updated daily, we will update this statement with any further information that we think may be helpful.
