On review of the Coronavirus Outbreak, I have detailed below an overview on Canford Law’s current and proposed operational changes, to be adopted immediately in attempts to provide some reassurance around a “Business As Usual” approach, in all three of the firm’s offices.
All staff at the firm have been reminded that during this time they should take extra care and;
1. Regularly wash their hands throughout the day
2. Use provided hand sanitiser
3. Use a tissue when sneezing or coughing
4. Adhere to the clear desk policy
5. Maintain a reasonable social distancing
6. Not to travel to the office should they develop a temperature above 37.8C or begin to feel unwell in any sense. By the same token, any employee who...
On March 1st 2020 Canford Law will celebrate our third birthday. The start-up of 2017; a distant memory shadowed by multiple office moves, significant growth, expansion and diversification. Canford Law, now spread across three UK sites, continues to develop a strong hold on its offering of insurance and commercial litigation.
Structured development, supported by reassuring levels of staff retention, beckons further expansion as the CL Development Team set their sights on further diversification for the second half of 2020.
As part of the underlying notion of developing knowledge and staying current, this week saw Canford’s Litigation Department team up with Thomas More and Lindenhall Chambers in London where teams discussed;
Amid the relentless snow and freezing temperatures, Canford Law celebrated its first birthday on 1st March. Whilst the inclement weather kept most doors firmly shut up and down the Country, we are delighted to announce the opening of our new office in Wilmslow.
In keeping with planned expansion, we opened the doors to our third office on March 5th. We are delighted to welcome new recruits through the door and into the Canford family.
Director David Nash said “Our continued success in dealing with claims in the insurance industry and subsequent further demand, meant that we just had to look further afield of Welwyn Garden City and Bournemouth. Manchester is renowned for being one of the hubs for insurance litigation and so it f...
Canford Law is delighted to announce the opening of a second office, in Bournemouth City Centre. On 3rd July 2017, Canford opens the doors to its new premises on Hinton Road.
Canford Law was approved by the Solicitors Regulation Authority on 16th February 2017 and began trading as a firm of Solicitors, specialising in Insurance and Commercial Litigation from their Welwyn Garden City office on 1st March 2017.
Director, David Nash said “It’s been an extremely positive start. Overwhelming interest from clients, together with structured growth plans, demanded a second office.

It could be said, that the Whiplash reforms have been the victim of a yoyo effect, since the Autumn of 2015.
In October 2016, the Ministry of Justice shelved the reforms not long after Mr. Osbourne’s announcement of the reforms only 11 months earlier, in his Autumn Statement of November 2015.
Once elected into the Government, Elizabeth Truss took little time, in confirming that it was her intention to push forward with the reforms. On 17th November 2016, the MOJ launched a consultation on proposals.
The consultation paper outlined plans to scrap the right to compensation, or put a cap on the amount people can claim for minor whiplash injuries. Capping compensation would see the average pay-out cut from £1,850 to a maximum amount...
