covid-19 update

In light of the Prime Minister's address to the nation and the increase in COVID-19 cases around the country, the Argyle Welsh Finnigan partners and staff will be working remotely wherever possible. As well as this, we will be assessing client and external meetings on a case by case basis to determine whether where possible those meetings can be held by audio visual means. This is not a decision we have taken lightly but it is a sensible precaution to take in this fast-evolving pandemic. Please contact our offices on 033088228, or email on in the first instance.= We thank our clients and staff for their continued support during this difficult and ever changing time.
