Our Stacks community is currently dealing with an unprecedented health crisis caused by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Like you, we are continuously monitoring COVID-19 developments and acting on the advice of the authorities to both contain the risk of the virus and ensure the health and safety of our people and their families, our clients and the community.

Continuity of service

At Stacks, our expert legal teams will continue to be available to you as normal.

We have plans in place to ensure that we can continue to deliver the highest standard of client service to you during this crisis, including the option for large scale remote working, should this become necessary.

We will continue to progress all existing matters you have with us and to assist you with any new challenges that might arise.

Changes to how we work

We are making some practical changes to the way we work:

  1. As some of our team members move to remote working arrangements, there may be some changes at our office locations during this period. We kindly ask that all attending visitors call ahead before attending any of our offices.
  2. Wherever possible, we will conduct meetings remotely by telephone or via our our video conferencing platform (we will set this up for you, if needed).
  3. We will be enforcing strict social distancing measures when in-person meetings are essential, such as settlement conferences or court attendances.

So, while the way we support you will change a little behind the scenes, the level and quality of service you receive will remain unchanged.

Impact on current matters

If you currently have a legal matter in progress, your legal team will be in touch with you if you will be impacted in any way by the changes to our working arrangements, or those of the courts or third parties. We will also let you know if a scheduled appointment or conference is going to be affected.

If you have questions, we are only a phone call away

If you have any questions about how the COVID-19 pandemic impacts your matter or have any concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the lawyer who has been the day-to-day contact for your matter.

For new enquiries to the firm, please do not hesitate to contact us in the usual way. We are here to help you navigate the wide range of legal and economic impacts of COVID-19 that are creating uncertainty and volatility across Australia.

This difficult time reminds us that we're all connected like never before. We're called upon to be our best selves, with patience, understanding, and compassion. On behalf of all of us at Stacks, we are committed to continuing to provide the highest level of service and to do all we can to support you, our clients and communities through the challenges that lie ahead.
