We have implemented plans to keep disruption caused by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) to a minimum, and we are asking visitors to Five Paper to please follow the government guidelines. If you have a pre-arranged appointment to visit Chambers, you will be sent a covid-19 declaration form, which we will require you to complete and return prior to your arrival. Please do not visit Chambers if you have a high temperature or a new, continuous cough; if you have had contact with anyone who has displayed these symptoms; or if you have visited an affected area. More information about the virus in general or circumstance in which you should self-isolate can be found here and here.


Please note, all Chambers in-person marketing events have been suspended until further notice and we continue to conduct virtual webinars and events.


Thank you in advance for your co-operation.
