Clairs Keeley can confirm we have no positive cases of COVID-19 amongst our partners and employees and our priority is to protect the health and safety of our staff and clients through these uncertain times.
We want all our clients to rest assured that we are still here to service your needs and we are committed to continuing to provide an uninterrupted service. All our lawyers are prepared to provide services from home should the need to isolate arise. We also have electronic facilities to implement video conferencing for high-risk clients, clients in isolation and for clients choosing to implement social distancing.
Wills and Estate Planning
With the increasing numbers of confirmed cases in Western Australia and the uncertainty of the pandemic in general over the next coming months, we have reviewed our usual policy of face-to-face meetings to take instructions and sign wills and can now offer our clients the following services:
- providing initial estate planning instructions by email by using our Will Instruction Form on our website https://www.clairskeeley.com.au/your-first-meeting/wills/;
- providing video-conferencing through a variety of platforms such as FaceTime and Zoom to take instructions and provide advice; and
- posting documents to clients by courier or secure mail with clear signing instructions.
It is important to review your enduring powers of attorney and guardianship documents in light of the current situation and contact us if you require new documents drafted. Again, we can provide a virtual service for these documents along with other estate planning documents.
