Business Continuity Update – COVID-19

September 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, 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.
