Please note that Bates Wells & Braithwaite are still operating during the Covid-19 crisis and will be throughout.

 

During the current lockdown we are operating a closed door policy - only those with appointments will be permitted access to the reception area.  If you are dropping off documents please use the trays in our "service entrance" (the next door along the road, it has a notice on the door) - for anything else, including providing ID please telephone reception for assistance.

 

Please note that in line with Government guidance, all visitors will be required to wear a face mask (unless you are exempt) 

 

Reception will be manned during our opening hours of 9:00am - 1:00pm and from 2:00pm – 5:30pm Monday to Friday

 

  • All meetings will still be strictly by appointment only and where possible we ask that you arrange appointments by contacting us by telephone or email in order to assist social distancing measures.
  • Only essential appointments will be dealt with face to face - please discuss this with the person dealing with your work
  • We ask that you please do not arrive early or late to an appointment as we have to strictly control the numbers of people entering the building at any one time.
  • On entry, you will be required to wear a mask, obey social distancing rules and to use the hand sanitiser provided prior to approaching reception.
  • To assist with social distancing, you may find you are asked to wait on the pavement outside the office, or that the front door is locked in order to control the number of people in reception at any one time.

We have a visual walk-through you can access by clicking here to outline all the rules and precautions we have had to put in place

 

If you are not yet ready to attend our offices we will still offer telephone appointments where possible.

Thank you
