Pandemic: The pandemic has created many new issues for employers and many new personal issues. We are maintaining all other services and have provision for all background services such as research, tracing and process serving & surveillance

Process Serving: Without transgressing Government directives, we are providing Process Serving in an acceptable manner – the principle being to avoid any form of personal contact within a two metre distance and any form of social contact with any other person. Staff are equipped with PPE when serving legal documents
