Following the UK Government’s latest advice and out of consideration for our Associates and our clients, we are operating split teams in the office for essential functions that cannot be performed from home. All other associates that can work from home are now doing so full time until further notice. We will continue to review this regularly or as Government/WHO advice dictates.
You can still reach Lockton contacts as you normally would, as all phones are forwarded and other communications channels monitored as normal.
We are a resilient and flexible business and we remain laser-focused on supporting our valued clients through this unchartered territory. We will fight for you as we always do, negotiating on your behalf and providing the best recommendations and advice for this unprecedented and evolving global situation. We are here for you, so please do continue to get in touch when you need us.
Wishing all the very best to you and your families,
The spread of the new coronavirus and the resulting disease, COVID-19, has created immense challenges and hardships for individuals and companies. Unfortunately, some of those challenges are in the cyber arena.
Private hospitals in the UK are reducing the capacity reserved for the National Health Service (NHS) and are expanding services for private patients. It is not business as usual yet, though.
Businesses owe a duty of care towards employees and customers to protect them from any foreseeable harm. The Covid-19 outbreak has changed the expectations of stakeholders and increased the risk of potential legal disputes.
As some governments begin to ease COVID-19 restrictions, researchers are warning that the frequency of pandemics is likely to rise in the future. It would therefore be wise for governments and societies to act on some of the lessons from the COVID-19 crisis.
