Wednesday 25th March 2020

To ensure public safety, LPC Law must do all it can to reduce advocates need to travel.

We are currently finding that virtually all civil court matters are being adjourned or we are being asked to attend by telephone or video conference.

With this in mind and following HMCTS Guidance, for all hearings listed on or after Friday 27th March 2020 LPC Law will no longer send advocates to physically attend hearings until further notice.

We are able to arrange and/or attend hearings remotely, whether by telephone or video conference.

Please call LPC Law if you have booked us to attend an upcoming hearing to advise whether you would like us to attend remotely or if the case has been vacated/adjourned by the court.

When instructing us to attend by telephone, please let us know if you require us to make arrangements with a telephone conference provider (a disbursement cost for the telephone conference provider will be added to our attendance fee).

In order to arrange the telephone conference we will require the following details:

  1. The number that the Court has asked you to use for the telephone hearing; and
  2. The names and numbers of any other participants to the telephone hearing (including the other party and/or their representative).

If we have not heard from you by 5.30pm the day before the listed hearing, we will cancel our attendance.

We hope you understand our position but please feel free to contact Partner & Head of Client Services, Michael Javaherian if you require anything further.
