Covid-19

In line with Government guidance, all our Boys & Maughan offices are currently closed to visiting clients. This is to protect you, our staff and other visitors to our offices, some of whom may be particularly vulnerable if exposed to Covid-19.

We are operating our normal opening times but many of our staff are working from home using secure online systems to access files and emails.

Much of our work is normally conducted by phone and email so, wherever possible, we are continuing with business as usual. Please email us as normal. If you wish to telephone your lawyer click through to their profile page to find their direct dial telephone number. 

In the current circumstances we are holding telephone meetings where we normally meet clients and other people whom we normally work with in person. Please email your usual point of contact here at Boys & Maughan for details. 

We are sorry for any problems and inconvenience caused by these changes to our normal services. 

Our overall approach is to follow the guidance issued by Public Health England, which can be found using the following link: https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/coronavirus-covid-19-list-of-guidance.

We are regularly monitoring the situation and preparing for all eventualities. The wellbeing of our clients and staff remains our priority.

If you have any concerns and wish to telephone us or you are not sure who would be best to call, please ring our Margate office on 01843 234000.
