Coronavirus / COVID-19 Update from SH&Co.

COVID-19 PANDEMIC - How we are protecting our clients and colleagues


As far as it is possible, it is business as usual for us all here at Susan Howarth & Company Solicitors Limited. We are continuing to deliver the best possible service to our clients.

Clients that are scheduled to come into the office, we will rearrange these meetings and conduct them by phone or video calls where possible. Some circumstances dictate that as a client you are required to come into the office - such visits will be conducted in line with the Government guidance on social distancing. This includes asking all visitors to wear a face covering, wash their hands on entry to the office and maintain a 2m social distance. We also ask that no client visits the office if they have any COVID-19 symptoms.


During this time, we are following the government guidance. Including asking colleagues with symptoms to self-isolate, encouraging social distancing, limiting large meetings, and promoting the use of alternative technology rather than meeting face to face.

We have provided colleagues who are able to work from home the technology and training to be able to carry out their duties as normal as much as possible.

Our offices are thoroughly cleaned throughout the day and this cleaning has been increased for areas such as door handles and surfaces.
