During this time of uncertainty, Barcan+Kirby are working extremely hard to ensure that we are protecting the health and safety of both our employees and our clients above all else.
We continue to offer the highest standard of service to our clients, however, we have had to adapt our usual working processes in line with the government’s guidance.
All of our six offices were closed to the public from Monday 23rd March, and all staff are working from home, providing the same high standard of service as we did prior to lockdown.
We are asking individuals not to visit our offices unless specifically asked to do so. All enquiries are now coming through our website and phone lines. Our Reception and Client Relationship teams are working hard remotely to ensure they’re dealt with as efficiently as possible. We also have the assistance of Moneypenny, who are able to take enquiries over the phone, should we be unable to take a call at a particular time.
For family law enquiries, we have also now launched Settify, an online tool which gathers details from those making enquiries relating to family matters and means our legal team have all the vital information they need prior to a first appointment, saving valuable time for both parties.
For Wills, LPAs and Court of Protection matters, our specialist team continue to advise clients remotely, either by telephone or by Skype. Wills can usually be prepared within 7-14 days of agreed instructions and money paid on account. If there is a need to have the will prepared in a shorter time frame then this can be discussed, and our Will Writers are prioritising key workers during this time.
Completed Wills will be sent via email or post, and we will arrange a telephone appointment or Skype at the time you are signing the Will, to talk through the formalities of witnessing.
Initial meetings and appointments may be taken over the telephone, rather than face-to-face, across all departments. Before the initial telephone meeting can take place, we ask that individuals scan or photograph two forms of ID and send to the lawyer they’re seeing. Any documents should also be sent to us electronically, and if hard copies are needed, we will advise individuals on how best to get these to us via Royal Mail.
We continue to update our clients and colleagues via email and telephone. We are also using our social media channels and dedicated website area to keep the public informed and to answer FAQs around each area of law we practice: https://barcankirby.co.uk/coronavirus/.
We have also launched a secure, easy-to-use online payment function on our website, which clients can use to pay invoices rather than call or come into our offices.
Incorporating the former offices of Alan Hodge Solicitors, David Cross & Co and Sims, Cook and Teague Solicitors, we have been established in Thornbury for over forty years, and are committed to providing a wide range of quality legal services tailored to clients' needs.
We can assist with company and commercial property transactions, advice for businesses, wills trusts and probate, buying and selling your home, divorce and other family matters, personal injury claims, and other disputes. Please request your free half hour initial interview.

Simpson Solicitors at 12 The Plain, Thornbury are open!
As we specialise in just Wills, Powers of Attorney and Probate we have been designated a key service by the government as it is considered more important than ever that everyone has Wills and Powers of Attorney in place to make sure their wishes are followed in case they become seriously ill.
Our Free Wills Review service is still the starting point, but now by telephone rather than at the office. 01454 412 278 is still the number to book a free telephone meeting. Then if the client wishes to go ahead and use us to put in place up to date documents, we offer our usual clear fixed price service with a promise of no hidden costs
We also still provide full assisted signing service. We think ensuring the documents are properly signed and witnessed is an essential part of the service. We are not charging anything extra to travel to a client’s home for a door-step signing – we will oversee the signing, providing 2 witnesses from our office and keep to 2m social distancing. Next week we will also be introducing a drive-thru signing service in the Simpson’s car park in Gloucester Road, Thornbury – for clients who are able to drive to us.
NHS Heroes Scheme:
We have watched in awe our #NHSHeroes working round the clock to protect the nation. We wanted to give something back. Given our line of work we have created our NHS Heroes Scheme and so in April and May when anyone instructs Simpson Solicitors in Thornbury to put in place a new Will, we donate a free Will to an NHS worker to help them protect their family.
