MacRoberts and COVID-19 – Supporting You, Your Families & Your Businesses
A Challenging Time for Us All
COVID-19 is causing economic uncertainty across all areas of business and for individual families. Since this situation emerged only a short time ago, my priority has always been to ensure the health and wellbeing of our people and clients of our firm.
Everyone at MacRoberts is working from home and we will continue to provide our clients with expert legal advice during these challenging times.
Business Continuity and Support during COVID-19
MacRoberts has always invested heavily in our IT and operational capabilities and we have recently been given a positive recommendation for ISO:22301 Business Continuity certification. This means that you can be assured of our commitment to manage disruptive business events so that we are able, as far as is absolutely possible, to meet your ongoing legal requirements.
We are here for you and we have drafted some simple guidance to help you, your families and your businesses to navigate these uncertain times. You can access all information here and we will continue to update you as the situation unfolds – no two days are the same, that’s for sure!
In the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact me personally or any member of the MacRoberts team. We are here to support you.
On behalf of everyone at MacRoberts, we hope that you emerge in a stronger, healthier position and we wish you all the very best. Stay safe and I look forward to seeing you all again.
