Impact of covid-19 on your business
All businesses regardless of trade, industry or size have been affected by the pandemic and the Government lockdown measures. Many of which are struggling to keep their businesses alive despite the Prime Minister announcing on 10 May 2020 the Covid Alert Level which will determine the easing of the lockdown measures.
Whilst the Government’s economic measures (Job Retention Scheme, CBILS, Bounce Back Loans) are well received, it may not be enough to keep businesses alive.
We understand that being in this situation causes sleepless nights, stress and anxiety. Especially when many businesses are owner-managed businesses and have never needed legal help of this kind.
It takes experienced lawyers in the areas of contract, employment, debt recovery, dispute resolution and insolvency law to be able to advise and guide the best possible outcome. That’s where we can help.

BUSINESS INTERRUPTION POLICIES
Any prudent business owner will have taken out an insurance policy to cover business interruption. The idea being that the policy pays out loss of income in the event that the business closes due to a disaster or the rebuilding process after a disaster.
Many would say Covid-19, on the face of it, is a disaster, one of its kind.
However, we all know, the devil is in the detail of the small print.
That’s why it is important for business owners to seek our expert advice and guidance to establish whether a claim can be made on the business interruption policy. That’s where we can help.
