Business as un(Usual) – Latest Update

| Published on May 7, 2020

During my 35 years as a lawyer and business manager I have worked though economic booms, recessions and world changing events, but could never have anticipated such a time as this. Who could?

There’s no doubt it’s an incredibly challenging time for all of us. My first priority is safeguarding the wellbeing of our team, clients and the communities within it we live and work.

At HK we continue to offer our full complement of legal services and our team of experts are available to provide the right support for you and your business. Life is changing at a rapid pace and so is the law. Our lawyers are ensuring that they are up to date on the latest legal position and how practically they are going to affect our clients. We’re updating our online materials daily to reflect the constant change in our legal environment. In particular we have detailed knowledge and insight on the government schemes for job retention, the property market and litigation – key topics for obvious reasons.

In order to support front line workers that are supporting our communities we are offering a 20% discount on selected legal services. If you know of anyone that would benefit from our advice please tell them; we would really like show our appreciation for their selfless work in this small way.

The first glimmer of light…

The announcement this week that the construction industry and property market is once again open for business, is the first glimpse of light at the end of the lockdown economic tunnel.

HK is open for business and our specialist team of property and construction lawyers is ready to help those wishing to move home,  invest in property, refinance and undertake development.

In the following weeks more industries will reopen and our community will continue to revive. I believe that with positivity the Country can fight off, not only Covid 19, but also the economic recession that is anticipated.

We are all looking forward to a brighter future but are mindful of the sacrifices made by each and every one of us over the last few months.  I know that the  HK team are here for our clients to support them and their businesses on the journey that lies ahead.  I may not be certain of what the future holds but I am certain that we at HK are equipped to provide the advice you need. 

As a thank you for the huge support provided by front line workers we continue to offer preferential rates on selected services.
