CV19

For You

Firstly, we are here, and we are here for you.

If you have a new case, or legal query, please do not hesitate and email hello@absolutebarrister.com.

Your case is important to us and we take each request for help seriously. Please bear in mind that it might take a little longer to get back to you than it would usually. 

"Your case is important to us and we take each request for help seriously."

If you have already heard from a member of the team and/or have an existing case please contact us as you usually would and if possible, please use the online system and/or email. Please bear in mind that our response times are taking longer than usual.

We are focusing on those cases that require additional attention during this time with reduced staff, and with existing staff having less time than they usually would, for example becasue of caring commitments. We will get to you. 

Please rest assured that we are working hard to identify and manage those cases which might be affected and to make sure that those clients with cases in court will know what is expected of them. 

For Our Team

We are also supporting our team here, who are often not working from their usual location and/or who are stuck in places becasue of restricted travel and/or who are in the 'at risk' category and who are self-isolating. We are well positioned to do this compared to most legal services but we would ask you to please bear with us.

If your case is urgent, or has an urgent requirement, we are very likely to have already identified it. If you are not sure if that applies to you, please send an email to hello@absolutebarrister.com and a member of our team would be delighted to help you. 

New Finance of Legal Costs

In addition we are working with a new finance partner to provide very fast financial decisions, to finance your legal costs to spread the cost of legal support over twelve months, regardless of when you need that support. This will be put in place shortly. 

New Online Security Measures

We are already well positioned to manage remote working but are also working hard now, to put in place additional security measures to ensure our market-leading hosted legal solution can support those who are managing their case online and for their barristers who may not be able to travel and may have to work from different locations.

We will make more announcements shortly. 

Finally...

We are here for you, we are here for your case and we are here to support key workers (barristers) and our team in the administration of justice.

Please get in touch as you would usually, about a new case, an existing case or anything else we might be able to help with.
