COVID-19 - Latest update

Coronavirus (COVID-19) – latest update

27 March, 2020

Three Stone have taken immediate measures to maintain our impressive chancery commercial services and our clerking team will provide their usual high standard of service whilst ensuring the safety of our clients, staff and members during this dynamic period.

Government guidance
We are following the Government’s guidance in response to the current Coronavirus-COVID-19 situation, and the relevant Protocols issued by the Lord Chief Justice which can be found here.

We can provide detailed advice on the nature and effect of these latest and all other provisions including the Coronavirus Act 2020

Wellbeing
Our priorities remain to ensure the continued wellbeing of our staff, members and clients; and that our service to clients is affected as little as possible while the current situation continues.

Services – representation at courts and advice
We are continuing to provide our usual services to our clients within the guidance of the government and the chief medical officer.

Consequently we have decided to close our premises, but all staff and members continue seamlessly to work from home. We are all monitoring telephones and responding to emails as usual.

We will continue to liaise effectively with the Courts, parties and clients to ensure that all hearings take place safely and justly.

Our facilities for communications and video conferencing (internally and externally) are operating very effectively for hearings and conferences. Please contact our clerks for assistance and information.

Documents/instructions/bundles
Post and DX deliveries will be collected securely. Solicitors and others wishing to instruct members of chambers should please enquire in the usual way initially by telephone or email to our clerks, and send papers in electronic form either as an email attachment or by cloud based transfer. If this is not possible safe means of collection and delivery exist and can be provided on request.

Payment
We ask that all fee notes be paid by bank transfer where possible but we are able to receive payment by cheque.
