The Tring office of Pictons temporarily closed on Friday 20 March 2020. However, staff will continue to support clients remotely during the current health restrictions. Post is still being collected from the office so documents can be sent, but e-mail correspondence is recommended.
Pictons has put in place plans to ensure that it continues to provide the advice that clients need during this difficult period.
Commenting on the decision to temporarily close the office Tring Partner Amy Chesterfield said: ‘We have recently invested in a major IT update and all of our solicitors and support staff are able to work remotely. Our phone system means that clients can use the same number to contact our staff regardless of where they may be. We are able to receive new instructions and encourage the use of telephone, email and Skype wherever possible. If access to Courts becomes limited we have the capability to conduct hearings by telephone or video conferencing.
‘We will react quickly to any further changes in government advice and will let you know if our plans change.
‘We wish the Tring community well during this difficult time.’
