Lodge Brothers Legal Services are open during the Coronavirus pandemic
The health and safety of our colleagues and our clients remains our priority.

We are open and able to offer our full range of services. Our head office remains open and our professional staff are able to work remotely or from our offices and our accounts and support staff are continuing to work from our head office with special arrangements in place. We are trying to reduce the risk to our clients and staff as much as possible so are holding client meetings over the telephone where possible. We are however, able to meet clients in our branch offices with special social distancing measures in place where this is preferable.

We are closely monitoring the government’s advice and will respond quickly and take further steps as and when required.
