Guidance for visiting our Bristol office during Covid-19
We are open and we are here for you
From 6 July 2020 our Queen Square office will be open between 8.30am and 5.30pm, Monday to Friday to assist you.
As most of our team including all of our lawyers continue to work remotely, visits to the office are by appointment only and are arranged in advance with you by your GL Lawyer looking after your case.
If you do not have the contact details of your lawyer, you can find their direct telephone number and email address at the end of their electronic communication or letters sent to you. You can also use the Our People section of the website.
If you are consulting us about a new matter, please contact reception and they will introduce you to a lawyer who will be able to assist you.
To contact reception please call 0117 906 9400 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
When you visit the office for an appointment we have made adaptions to make the office a safer place for you and our staff:
- Providing hand sanitiser at the entrance so that you can clean your hands on entering.
- We have added screens at the reception desk to minimise contact.
- PPE is available in reception for use when appropriate.
- We are carefully managing the number of people in the office at any one time.
- Meeting rooms have been set up for flexible use as either video conference rooms where you may speak to your lawyer over a web facility or for personal attendance or document signing.
- We have introduced floor markings to help you easily maintain a 2m distance between other visitors and team members.
- Your client toilet facilities are marked, and guidance will be given for access when requested.

When you visit the Office please follow the procedure below:
