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.
