Lockdown 2021

Business as usual in unusual times. We are continuing with all legal work during Lockdown 2021. We are still working hard on behalf of clients old and new. We are still conducting most meetings by telephone and/or via conferencing facilities. In particular we are pleased to continue to offer our fixed fee meetings of £95 inclusive of VAT for one hour, to enable clients to explore any new legal matter with which they are concerned.

We have reduced numbers of staff in our office as many employees are working from home where possible via email/video/telephone calls. (All data is secure.) Please do not come into our offices without an appointment. Thank you for your ongoing and loyal support and on behalf of everyone at Barrett and Co Solicitors we hope you remain safe and well. Please do email or call us for our virtual appointments on 0118 958 9711 or email [email protected] (or the direct email address of your Barrett & Co contact).
