Covid-19 preparedness

Maurice Turnor Gardner has plans in place to enable the firm to operate as normally as possible through the current period of uncertainty.

Our first priority is the wellbeing of our people and we are doing all we can to ensure that they keep as healthy as possible, while continuing to provide our clients with the levels of service to which they are accustomed.

We are taking a number of measures, outlined below, to minimise any potential impact of the Covid-19 outbreak in the United Kingdom on our clients, people and operations.

Business continuity

All our lawyers are able to access the MTG network remotely and securely. Many of our lawyers work remotely on a regular basis and are familiar with the practicalities of working from home. We are confident that our IT systems are able to cope with an increased number of remote users as we are all now working remotely in accordance with the government's advice.

Large events at our premises

As a precaution, during the months of March and April, we have decided to cancel or postpone any large events due to take place at our offices. This is to minimise the risk of unnecessary infection. 

International travel

In line with the latest government advice, we have stopped all business travel until further notice.  As an alternative we have asked our people to attend meetings remotely via telephone or video link.  We are also following PHE guidelines for personal travel overseas.
