24 Sep 2020

FBCMB reopened its offices across the region on 1st June 2020, after introducing new COVID safe working measures, a social distancing policy and investment in a new desk booking system.


The Firm continues to remain open for clients needing appointments for essential legal advice, should they need to meet our solicitors socially distanced but in person. We continue to offer appointments by video and telephone.


Managing director Neil Lloyd said the safety, health and well-being of the firm’s people, their families and clients was his first priority.

“We have remained open for business throughout the crisis, supporting business owners and employers as they navigate a swathe of changes in legislation and constantly changing guidance.

“We have spent considerable time consulting with our teams to ensure our working environment is COVID-19 Safe. Measures introduced include one way systems in shared offices and stairwells, only one person at any time in lifts, toilet or kitchen areas; installation of hand sanitiser dispensers, and provision of PPE for client and staff use.

“Home-working will remain in place for the majority of our teams. But where clients wish to meet us in the office, we will be operating an appointment only system with meeting rooms cleaned between each appointment,” added Mr Lloyd.

Clients will be able to book appointments by phone, email or the firm’s live chat facility.
