CORONAVIRUS & BUSINESS CONTINUITY: An Update from the President

Dear Member

I hope this update finds you safe and well and that you had a happy Easter.
I wrote last week about business continuity and simple web tools that were being developed by The Law Society to help firms and practitioners understand the range of government support available.

The toolkit is now available and is made up of:

  • guidance for law firms on the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme – you can read the guidance by clicking here.
  • top tips for law firms to preserve their cashflow – please click here for more information. 
  • an online tool to determine your firm’s eligibility for government support measures – you can access the tool by clicking here.
  • video-insight from managing partners and senior leaders on how to weather the storm – you can watch the video by clicking here.

I hope the information here is helpful to consider when looking at how to strengthen your business in these challenging times.

If you have any comments or suggestions on ways that the SLS can support you, please do let me know. You can also contact your Law Society Council Members for Surrey should you need any help. Their contact details are:

Alastair Logan OBE, LL.B - alastairdwlogan@btinternet.com
Sushila Abraham - office@sabrahamsolicitors.co.uk

Stay safe,

Nick Ball
President
