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,
