Landmark Chambers is continually monitoring the situation around the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and reviewing the advice received from Public Health England, the UK Government and the World Health Organisation in order to protect our barristers, staff and clients.
In these challenging times, our aim is to continue to provide our clients with as normal a service as possible, whilst following the latest advice in what is, and will likely remain, a fast-moving and complex situation.
Chambers has comprehensive IT infrastructure in place which enables our barristers and staff team to work efficiently and securely from home, and we continue to maintain a skeleton staff team in Chambers. Wherever possible, we are encouraging clients to undertake meetings with Counsel via video or audio conference facilities. If a meeting in Chambers is considered essential, clients will be asked to follow our enhanced hygiene procedures and to confirm that they have not visited an affected area or presented any symptoms.
If you have any questions, or if you would like to discuss arrangements for remote conferences, or specific requirements for getting papers to Counsel, please do not hesitate to contact us. Chambers’ telephone numbers remain fully operational and can be answered remotely, but should you experience any problems, please contact the Senior Team on the mobile numbers below:

If the situation escalates further in the coming days or weeks and we are required to close our premises in London and Birmingham, we want to reassure you that we have a comprehensive business continuity strategy and robust procedures in place, and we will continue to be available by telephone, email, Skype and video conference to support our clients throughout this challenging period.
Thank you for your cooperation and support.
