COVID-19 Reaction Hub

The coronavirus outbreak has posed a significant challenge for individuals, businesses and governments globally. The impact has been unparalleled, and resulted in widespread disruption to our daily lives and operations.

We would like to share with you the ways in which Lawrence Stephens is addressing the challenges you may be facing, and to offer our support wherever possible.

Communication and Correspondence

Please note that, considering the current situation, all correspondence and documentation should be sent by email or secure upload (please enquire for details of our dedicated facility). We suggest that hard copies of documents are only forwarded to our office if necessary.

We have adopted various measures, including telephone and video conferencing, as appropriate and necessary. We are fully operational although staff are working remotely. Please liaise with your usual contact or any of our management team at any time for further information.

We are continually updating these pages as the situation develops, to ensure that you have the most accurate information regarding the issues and changes that could affect your business.
