Each year the firm is involved in a variety of different initiatives and activities as represented by our CSR Champions. Everyone is actively encouraged to propose ideas and to participate. We believe in supporting disadvantaged communities, who do not have the opportunities that we do, and to help them develop their life skills.

A few examples of our planned and recent CSR activities:

Guided Reading at Nelson Primary School, Ladywood – Nelson Primary School is based in Birmingham’s most deprived area. English is not spoken as a first language by most of the children. Listening to them read and praising their efforts will make a huge difference to their confidence and their ability to move forward, as well as improving their spoken English. Our ultimate goal is for the children to be able to read independently.

Gardening at Grey Gables Residential Care, Acocks Green – This is a charitable trust care home which cares for over 40 residents. We will work closely with the Committee at Grey Gables and provide financial and hands on support for maintenance of their gardens. The benefits of gardening for the residents include exercise, social contact and a sense of living at “home”.

Yarkhill Field to Fork Festival – The firm also supported the Yarkhill Field to Fork Festival which raised over £8,000 for Martha’s Trust which provides care and moral support to people with severe disabilities.

Business Continuity Update – COVID-19

23rd March 2020


To our valued clients and partners,

As the impact of COVID-19 continues to evolve we wanted to take the time to reassure you of the actions we are taking to protect our clients, colleagues and the wider communities, whilst working to maintain our services to you at this time.

 

Our commitment to you


We are open for business and will continue to provide you with the best service we can in the safest way possible, but in-line with government advice our offices are now closed for face-to-face meetings and all staff are now working from home until further notice.


If you have an appointment scheduled your legal advisor will be in touch shortly to discuss your options, if they haven’t done so already.

 

Our staff are set up and ready to respond to you as usual. We are working hard to mitigate any disruptions, and will continue to provide you with the legal service and advice you need, delivered with the high-level of service you have come to expect from Wilkes.

 

If you do experience a slight delay in hearing back from us, please bear with us. We will be in touch.

 

If you have a general enquiry please call us on 0121 233 4333 or email us at law@wilkes.co.uk, or contact your normal point of contact.

 

Thank you for your patience during these unprecedented times. We look forward to returning to normal, with a handshake, as soon as possible.
