COVID-19 - Update regarding Peacockes Solicitors

Amanda Quin - Wednesday, March 25, 2020

Dear all, 

Let us start by saying everyone here at Peacockes Solicitors hopes you are safe and well, and that you remain so for however long the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic lasts. We want to assure you that we're doing everything we can to ensure it's business as usual for you and the rest of our clients.

We take the health risks and the potential disruption to our staff and clients from the pandemic very seriously. We are monitoring the situation continuously and staying up to date on guidelines and advice issued by local government and health authorities. Whilst things remain fluid in the legal industry, we have a strong plan in place which has now been reviewed to address COVID-19 specifically.

We are taking precautionary and preventive steps to protect the health and well-being of our staff to ensure no disruption to our client services. These steps include:

Face-to-face meetings

For the foreseeable future, our office will be contacting any person with a scheduled meeting to arrange to have that meeting via phone or web. If documents need to be witnessed then we will make suitable arrangements by agreement on a case by case basis. We encourage all clients, both new and existing, to consider the use of Skype facilities if need be.

Office closures

Following advice from the respective governments, and in helping flatten the curve, we have begun transitioning our staff to working from home. All our offices currently remain open however, we consider it only a matter of time before the Federal or State Government directs that offices such as ours close until further notice. We are fortunate that many of our staff can work from home for an extended period, should the need arise, so that we can guarantee continuity of service for our clients.

Office contact

Please call our office on 02 6882 3133 as per usual, however we recommend you utilise email as the preferred means of contact. All our office and individual contact details are supplied on our website.

Mail

Please email any correspondence or documents to our office rather than sending hard copies in the post. We ask all documents be emailed to our admin email address copying in the solicitor with carriage of the matter.

We appreciate your ongoing support and understanding as we adapt to a rapidly changing situation. Please keep safe.
