Further Statement from Hawkswell Kilvington – COVID-19:

These are unprecedented times and we have to do all that we can to ensure that all of our team remain safe and well.

In light of the measures announced by the government on 23 March 2020, from 24 March 2020 the buildings from which Hawkswell Kilvington operates at 17 Navigation Court (Wakefield) and 28 Queen Street (London) will temporarily close. During this time we would ask that any correspondence and documents are sent to us by electronic means only. If that is not possible, before sending any hard copy documents to us, please contact the solicitor you are dealing with or our Practice Manager, Louise Tankard, on +44(0) 7595 082454 or ltankard@hklegal.co.uk and you will be advised where the documents should be sent.

We have invested heavily in our IT infrastructure over the last few years and all of our solicitors and support staff can work (in fact have been working) remotely without any issues, ensuring that you should not receive any disruption to the highest levels of service you receive from us. We can and have been convening meetings over Skype, Teams and Zoom or similar media whenever required, and at short notice. You only need ask.
