Stronger Working Together COVID-19 Management Plan and Risk Assessment
We have spent time structuring a plan that focusses on the health and wellbeing of our employees and clients.
As advised by the Government, a risk assessment has been undertaken by the firm and actions implemented as a result, enabling us to confirm COVID Secure status. We confirm the 5 steps to Safer Working Together. The risk assessment is under regular review.

A key strategy to manage the transmission risk within our firm is to maintain a remote working model. To enable the firm to implement office social distancing that is truly in keeping with the spirit of the Safer Working Together measures, we have a limited number of people working onsite at any one time with fixed desk positions. All our Partners, Managers, Solicitors and Legal Assistants, as well as a good number of support employees have the facilities to work remotely, so you can be rest assured that we are working with continuity to ensure our level of professionalism.
Archers Law employees who work remotely use a secure VPN connection to access their work computer desktop - this means that confidential information and personal data remains secure.
All Archers Law team members have been provided with our Safer Working Together policy and video to show the measures the firm has put in place to protect their wellbeing should they need to attend the office.

Incoming post and document drop offs
Incoming post is distributed daily. We do ask that if the documents can be returned to us by email our preference is for electronic communications. This assists us in reducing the risk of COVID transmission via paper.
If you do need to drop documents at the office, we ask that you only do so if essential. If you do, please use the letterbox to the lefthandside of our front door. Please enclose in a sealed envelope marking who it is for and who it is from. We also ask that you do not visit our office to make a payment. You can make an invoice payment on our online facility 24/7 via this website or contact accounts by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
