"Very professional, experienced and high-quality service" The Legal 500

Coronavirus Update: 12 May 2020

The partners and staff at Payne Hicks Beach recognise what a difficult time this remains for everyone, and our first thoughts are with those suffering from this virus, their families and the medical staff and carers looking after them so selflessly.

Following the revised measures announced by the Prime Minister on 10 May, our office at 10 New Square remains closed. Our staff continue to work remotely and our experience over recent months has demonstrated that we will be able to continue to support you in whatever way you require. We would ask you to avoid corresponding by post but, subject to that, please do continue to contact us by phone and email in the normal way.  All our contact details are shown on our website but please use the direct dial number of the person to whom you wish to speak rather than our main switchboard number.

Notwithstanding the challenges of the lockdown, the firm remains busy and we are delighted to have been able to continue our growth with a number of new hires: Martin Paisner CBE and Jessica Henson as Partners in the Private Client and Dispute Resolution departments respectively and Sarah Williams as a Legal Director and Head of Fertility, Surrogacy, Adoption & Modern Law in the Family Department.

We will be updating this message from time to time as the situation changes and further Government guidance is provided.
