Coronavirus Covid-19 Update 21st March 2020.

We have made the decision to close our London office on a temporary basis (please note, if possible please direct post to our Surrey office where it will be dealt with appropriately). We are all aware of the increasing impact that the Coronavirus pandemic is having on our daily lives.  Our priority is to protect and minimise the risk to our staff and visitors whilst at the same time ensuring we continue to service the needs of our clients and contacts as effectively as we can and with minimal disruption.

Our Surrey office remains open but we are actively encouraging our team to work remotely wherever they can. We are encouraging our team to use technology in place of face to face meetings, for the safety and well being of our team, and of our clients and contacts. Be assured that our teams can communicate quickly and easily using more traditional methods such as phone calls and e-mails but can also offer clients video calls such as FaceTime, Zoom or Skype where you feel like you would like to communicate on a face to face basis. Our team will be as responsive to our clients’ needs now as they ever have been.

Should you need to see someone face to face “in person” we can discuss this with you and make appointments where necessary. But we would ask all clients and contacts not to make the journey to our offices without an arranged appointment.

We believe we have robust continuity plans in place to deal with the worsening crisis.  As stated above, all Mundays staff are now able to work remotely, and we are confident that we have appropriate systems in place to enable us to continue to provide our advice and services, to receive and transfer funds, to circulate paperwork and to arrange execution, exchange and delivery of vital documents. 

This is an unprecedented situation for all of us and we at Mundays will do everything we can to assist our clients through these difficult times.  If you have any queries regarding your business or personal affairs then please do call or email your normal Mundays contacts and we will do all we can to assist you.

Of course the social and economic landscape is changing daily but we will do everything we can to keep on top of the developing situation. 

We will make further announcements when necessary and we will keep our website updated as new developments unfold. We hope that all of our valued clients and contacts stay safe and well during these challenging times.

With our best wishes.
