We were delighted to write for The Law Society; Peter Taylor, our managing partner shares his experience of managing a firm during lockdown while shielding.

At the start of the pandemic, Peter was placed in the extremely vulnerable category, having undergone a kidney transplant 17 years ago. In managing a team of 260 through this pandemic remotely, the priority was the health and wellbeing of staff.

It has always served me well and enabled me to sleep easier at night.”
