Response to COVID-19

Updated as of 23 September 2021

The spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to present challenges for us all.
At Powell Gilbert, we have taken – and will continue to take – all possible measures to deal with the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our primary concern is to safeguard the health and welfare of our colleagues and clients, and everyone with whom we engage.
At the same time, we are fully committed to ensuring continuity of service and the same high level of support that our clients expect.
The following is a summary of the current situation and our response.
The office is open with necessary safety measures in place to keep everyone as safe as possible when they are here. All visitors will have their temperature checked upon arrival and must observe the safe distancing and hygiene measures we have put in place. 
All members of our team are also able to work remotely. Our investments in IT systems and technology, to ensure robustness and flexibility, have resulted in systems and processes which are demonstrating excellent resilience.
We have shifted to virtual channels for meetings, wherever possible. Many UK court hearings continue to be virtual, at present. However, we are now able to travel domestically and internationally when required.
Staying in touch
You should feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns about the above, or more generally regarding specific matters. You can do so either via your usual Powell Gilbert contact, through our main switchboard (020 3040 8000) or by emailing
On behalf of all of us at Powell Gilbert, we wish you good health and resilience during this unprecedented situation. Our thoughts are with those who are directly and indirectly affected by COVID-19 and with the health workers across the world who are on the frontlines of this battle.
