An update on how Keating Chambers continues to work with clients during Covid-19

Date: 2 April 2020

Our response to COVID-19

We hope you and your families remain safe.

An update on how Keating are working during these unprecedented times.  Barristers, clerks and members of staff are working, effectively and with, we hope, very little disruption to the services we provide, from home. We continue to work as the courts, arbitrations and mediators conduct remote applications, hearings and mediations. We are advising clients in on-going matters and responding to new business critical issues created by the crisis such as force majeure and bond calls. Recent topical articles can be found on our News & Events page.

If you have any questions about how we continue to manage our operations to deal with the ongoing impact Covid-19 is having or to discuss how we can help you in any way, please do not hesitate to get in touch with your usual Keating contact or Declan Redmond.

Contacts for Barristers

Direct contact details for the barristers you know will likely already be available to you. However, all barristers are happy to provide mobile numbers or other contact details whilst working remotely.

Clerks and barristers are very happy to arrange meetings convened over Skype, WebEx or similar media whenever required, and at short notice. Our IT team will be available to ensure that arrangements operate smoothly.

New Arrangements until Further Notice

The current situation is fluid and of course, once HM Government’s guidance indicates that a return to normal working practices is permissible and safe, we look forward to welcoming you back to our building on Essex St.
