Coronavirus (COVID-19)

  • As your professional body we’re hearing a lot from our members on the ground. We’re using that insight as the voice of solicitors with government and regulators during the pandemic. We’re developing advice and support to help you through this difficult period.

    Our priorities are:

    • looking after our members’ safety – from protecting our members in courts to pushing for documents to be signed remotely
    • helping members keep their businesses going – from advice on government support to tips on remote working
    • helping members stay compliant – lobbying regulators to make changes
    • protecting the rule of law – scrutinising the emergency legislation

    These were our immediate priorities in the first days of the crisis. We're already starting to see results, and we're now turning to other issues that arise. To raise any issues, contact us.
