It is not only a testing time for our government and healthcare systems, but also an extremely challenging time for all businesses. Despite the furlough scheme, government backed loans, wage reductions, and deferral of many overheads, we are still in the midst of a period where many businesses are struggling.
We want you to know that at Glanvilles LLP, we are here for you whether new or existing client. Our employment team is still working to deal with the increase in advice and assistance arising from the COVID-19 outbreak, and its impact on businesses.

Post is scanned and sent out to our lawyers who are working remotely so it can be dealt with as quickly as possible;
