Coronavirus (Covid-19) Response

We Are Open

Longmores office has now re-opened by appointment only and we continue to operate during our usual working hours. The office has been deep cleaned and issued with a COVID19 Cleanliness Assurance Certificate and a rota ensures that there are never more than 50% of our staff in the office at any one time. Most of our clients have been happy to deal with us remotely via virtual meetings and this will carry on. Plus, now that government restrictions have changed we are allowed to offer meetings in person when the need arises. Whether we see you online or at the office, we are passionate about continuing to deliver an exceptional service.

The firm is following government guidelines on social distancing– this is what to expect if you visit our office:

  • Please only visit if you have an appointment – this includes making deliveries and bringing in identification
  • A face covering must be worn (masks will be available if you do not have your own)
  • Hand sanitising machines have been installed and must be used upon arrival
  • Try to maintain 2m social distancing
  • Appointments will be staggered to minimise the number of people in reception
  • Meeting rooms are marked for social distancing
  • Meeting rooms will be sanitised between each meeting
  • We will not be offering refreshments
  • Disinfectant spray and paper towels are available in the toilet to enable you to clean touch points

If you have any questions about visiting us, please call 01992 300333 and we will explain what you need to do.
