Dear clients,
We are here to support you.

With the recent announcements by Government regarding a gradual phase towards easing restrictions we wanted to share with you everything we are doing to ensure we can continue to support you, our clients, as fully and safely as possible.

Our services continue

These are unprecedented times and none of us know quite how the ‘new normal’ is going to look but what we are sure of here at Gabbs is that the level and quality of services we offer to our clients has not changed. We continue to offer the same level of expertise, security and support to our clients. These may be delivered in a slightly different way than before but rest assured, our commitment to you has not altered.

Our security, framework and business delivery remains the same. Quality for our clients is still our upmost priority.

Making sure you get the services you need

Appointments. The health and wellbeing of our clients, staff and their respective families is paramount. With this in mind, we are currently still operating a closed door policy to our offices. However, this does not mean we are closed for business! We have a full rota of solicitors and support staff behind those doors answering your emails, taking your telephone calls, and holding appointments via the telephone or via the internet.

If you wish to see one of our solicitors in person or need to visit our office please telephone in advance and we will run you through our social distancing and health and safety procedures to ensure everyone remains healthy and well. However, this will only be offered in specific circumstances. Telephone and email are the best way to keep us all safe.

Security and finances. Payments to and from our accounts are now being sent by bank transfer. We are unable to accept cash or cheques at the present time and card payments can be made via telephone.

Increased security checks are being made by our Accounts Department for all transactions so you can have peace of mind that any financial matters with us are in safe hands.

Supporting our colleagues

Our staff are at the heart of Gabbs. They make the cog turn! Gabbs is a robust business that has met the challenges of these times with a whole Army of staff behind us. Supporting our colleagues to gradually return to work in a safe manner and providing security for their jobs is important to us.

All our staff, either working from home, in the office, or a combination of both are being guided through this difficult time. We have undertaken detailed risk assessments for all our offices, provide PPE equipment to all our staff and have developed detailed plans for social distancing of staff and safe working practices.

We believe that providing our colleagues with continued employment and security is the best way to help them and their families through this time.

Helping our local community

We are as keen to get Herefordshire and Powys moving again as you are but understand this must be at the right time. We look forward to the day that we recommence work with local agents and contacts to get Herefordshire’s and Powys’ economy moving once more..

From staff buying a coffee from a local café, to raising money for local causes near to our hearts, we are raring to resume all of this when the time is right.

We’re in this for the long haul and we’re here for you.

Please all stay safe and well during this time and we look forward to working for you once more.

Kind regards

James Lee
