To mark 100 days since the UK officially went into lockdown (23 March 2020), Shakespeare Martineau hosted a week of virtual events to support businesses and the public enter the ‘new abnormal’.

On Monday 29 June, the firm’s family and private client teams answered some of the most frequently asked questions since lockdown started; including ’why do I need to make a will?’ and ’when do no fault divorces come into force?’ in an FAQs webinar looking at wills, protecting your personal wealth and family matters.

Tuesday 30 June was officially 100 days since lockdown began and CEO Sarah Walker-Smith was once again in conversation with Professor Baback Yazdani, Dean of Nottingham Business School, reflecting on the latest government announcements and ONS data. Professor Abhinay Muthoo, Dean of Warwick in London and professor in economics, joined them in the SHMA Talks episode, casting his view on what the latest stats mean for businesses and the economy.

Listen again to Sarah and Baback in discussion at 50 days since lockdown on our SHMA® ON DEMAND PAGE.

Wednesday 1 July saw senior litigators hosting a webinar on making COVID-19 related claims on your business interruption insurance claims, while Friday 3 July had experts from the firm asking people’s property leases questions in a live Q&A.

The second SHMA Talks episode of the week was broadcast on Thursday 2 July, where Sara Burks Adaptis was in conversation with CMPO Ben Buckton and head of culture & talent, Helen Hay, about maintaining a positive work culture after lockdown.

During the 100th day (Tuesday 30 June) the firm also extended its free helpline hours from 9am through to 5pm. The helpline is open to businesses and individuals looking for free information and guidance from senior legal professionals.
