Following the Prime Minister’s announcement on 4 January 2021, Birkett Long intends to comply with his request to stay at home. Consequently, our offices in Colchester, Chelmsford and Basildon are now closed to the public until further notice.
Staying in contact
In March last year we set up robust working from home arrangements for all our lawyers and our support team, which have continued to work well throughout the pandemic. Personal visits to our offices will not be possible, but we remain available via phone, email and video call and you should continue to use your normal points of contact for the team members with whom you are working.
If you do have any difficulties contacting us, our switchboard is operational, so if necessary please try the following:
Colchester – 01206 217300
Chelmsford – 01245 453800
Basildon – 01268 244144
Alternatively, you can email email@example.com and your message will be forwarded to the appropriate person.
As far as possible we will ensure any post will be dealt with as soon as possible and scanned to the relevant lawyer and their support team where appropriate. Please note that our usual deliveries from the Royal Mail have been impacted this week, so we may experience some delays in post being received at our offices. Most outgoing communication will continue to be via email.
We value our relationships with our clients, business partners and suppliers, and we are confident our work with you will be disrupted as little as possible.
We understand that many of our clients continue to face difficult challenges in their personal and business lives. We remain committed to helping all of our clients find solutions to these challenges and we are still ready, willing and able to help.
Your usual contact's details can be found on our People pages on our website or see below for more ways to contact us.
