How family lawyers have adapted their working practices during the pandemic- Will MacFarlane quoted in The Times

12 April 2021

Will MacFarlane, partner in our Family and Divorce team, has been quoted in an article in The Times about how family lawyers have adapted their working practices during the pandemic.

In the article, Will explains how the pandemic and the move to video-conferencing has impacted family law.

Pre-pandemic, we would spend long hours at court sitting in cramped waiting rooms and corridors waiting to be called for procedural hearings lasting only 15 minutes,” 

 Having turned to video-conferencing during the past year, it has saved us time and money for the client and, somewhat counter- intuitively, made us more accessible. There is a sense that there is no going back to hard-copy bundles and mountains of paper.”
