Covid-19 Policy

St. John’s Chambers is committed to providing the very best services to our clients as we all navigate these challenging times.  We have put arrangements in place so we can continue to meet our clients’ needs, in line with the current health and safety guidance from the government.

Our remote working arrangements

As part of our Business Continuity Plan, we have taken steps to restrict all non-essential visitors to our office and, subject to maintaining a skeleton team on site, our people will be working remotely unless absolutely unavoidable. All meetings will be conducted virtually and our practice management team are able to arrange conferences via video link or audio call, in line with client requirements. We will also use paperless systems where possible to share documentation.

We will also be looking into all training and seminars through virtual means, including webinars. This information will be sent out to our mailing list. Should you wish to join, please email Emily Dalton, Head of Marketing,

We have tried and tested our phone system, so all clerks, staff and barristers can be contacted remotely and from home with minimal disruption to our clients.
