Covid 19 Update

At PWT Advice LLP we are closely monitoring the global impact of the current COVID-19 pandemic and following the advice of the Government. The health and welfare of our staff team, clients, and their families is our number one priority.

We are adapting constantly to the new 'normal' providing the most appropriate solutions on a client by client basis. Our workforce is set-up to work remotely with secure practices in place.

Client meetings

As far as possible all client meetings are being conducted remotely rather than in person, via telephone and a range of video conferencing platforms (Zoom, Skype and Facetime, etc). We can also arrange safe meetings in person, where necessary, complying with Government guidelines on social distancing and face coverings.

Wills & Powers of Attorney

To safeguard the validity of client Wills and/or Powers of Attorney we have instigated a 'safe distance Wills and/or Powers of Attorney signing' and will in many instances visit your home to undertake this. In exceptional circumstances, we can arrange for on-line Wills to be undertaken in line with the current guidance provided by the Ministry of Justice on making wills using video conferencing, published on 25th July 2020.

Please contact us for further information or to discuss your specific needs and we can work with you to provide the safest solution to suit your circumstances.

We will continue to review our operating practices and this statement will be updated to reflect any further changes.
