A message to our clients regarding Coronavirus/Covid 19

We are confident that our Business Continuity Plans will enable us to maintain our high level of service quality for clients

At this time it is natural for all businesses to look at their key supply chain and seek to ensure continuity of service.  We have done this.

Devonshires is a multi-office operation with agile working built in, so the service that we are already providing comes from offices and homes. If we have any disruption to our ability to work from any of our offices, perhaps due to a travel ban, we can continue from homes and you should not notice a different level of service. Given our main office is in Central London, we have had these contingency plans for years due to terror threats.

We have already built in a programme of deep office cleans, to help minimise the risk to our staff, and all offices and meeting rooms have hand sanitiser available.

Should you require more detail we have prepared a statement that can be read on our News pages.

If you have any questions, or would like to know more about our BCP, then please contact Duncan Edwards, our Chief Operations Officer at duncan.edwards@devonshires.co.uk.

Our thinking

PSED breach not fatal to claim for possession

Yesterday the Court of Appeal gave judgement in the case of Luton Community Housing Limited (LCH) v Durdana [2020] EWCA Civ 445.


It’s been nearly two weeks since it became clear that we’d need to relocate our entire legal practice to kitchens, sitting rooms, and the odd home study, across the land.

The Coronavirus Act 2020

The provisions of the Coronavirus Act 2020 which relate to residential tenancies are now in force.

Serious about Corporate Social Responsibility

Here at Devonshires Solicitors we take Corporate Social Responsibility very seriously. Our partners, staff, clients and charities continue to demonstrate goodwill, generosity and dedication to the CSR schemes that we operate. We are proud of our achievements. Last year over 40% of our partners and staff volunteered to give up their time to support our chosen charities and the Devonshires Foundation donated in excess of £40,000.
