No.18 Chambers : Here to help
In these ever changing times where we are being asked to adapt No.18 Chambers are here to help facilitate this. With over 50 years of clerking experience and extremely experienced members, No18 continues to be committed to providing the highest level of service, client care, advocacy and advice by ensuring that the needs, concerns and interests of clients are always paramount.
Following on from the President’s Guidance (as attached), as well as the very helpful documents compiled by Mr Justice Mostyn and Mr Justice MacDonald No.18 Chambers are utilising technology to ensure the smooth running of cases. With this in mind we are able to operate our services remotely using a variety of methods at our disposal including telephone calls, email, Zoom, Skype for Business & Microsoft Teams.
For any form of Court hearings, No.18 is able to offer a virtual attendance via Zoom, Skype for Business & Microsoft Teams. For those who are unaware, these platforms can include:
- The Court for the hearing itself
- Separate conference rooms for the parties and their teams; and
- A corridor for counsel’s discussions.
All participants will sent the joining details in advance of the session and there is no need for any software or apps to be downloaded in advance: as it will be generated automatically when participants click on the access links which are provided.
Conferences and advocates’ meetings
We are able to attend telephone and video conferences, which again does not require any of the participants to download any software in advance, as above.
Whether you have opted for a video or telephone conference with counsel, joining details will need to be obtained before the conference is due to commence.
With the new technology it makes no court destination too far. Please do get in touch with us to discuss your preferred methods of communication at his challenging time. If you have any questions about remote access and working then please do get in touch and we will be happy to assist you.
