Still staying calm and carrying on…

Just into the second Covid-19 lockdown and it’s business as usual for IDR Law.

We’ve worked remotely since inception so have the infrastructure in place to continue work as normal, which we achieved even from the start of the first national lockdown.

We use a paperless system which is not only better for the environment, but more efficient, allows faster response and has the welcome addition of reducing viral transmission.

As specialists in contentious probate, we understand the emotional and financial stress court proceedings can bring, and always try to resolve disputes as quickly and smoothly as possible, using meditation as a tool where necessary. Though face-to-face mediations are not doable at present, we’ve had many successful zoom mediations. If you’d like to know a bit more about how these mediations work, click here.

Our Zoom in the Room feature has been well-received – several firms are already benefitting from this virtual service – we offer it free of charge to other firms in our network who can take advantage of having one of our specialists present in the ‘room’ to give a short presentation, host a Q & A session or offer opinions on contentious probate topics.

IDR Law has expanded during the pandemic and, as well as gaining new referrers, we’ve been happy to welcome Ellie Falkingham, paralegal, who has been with us since September, and our new solicitor, Eleanor Stenson, who joined us just this week bringing even more contentious probate experience to the firm. Welcome Ellie and Eleanor!

We are also proud that Kate Wootton has begun her training contract with the IDR Law and will become a fully qualified solicitor in under 18 months – already an asset to the firm, she has five years’ experience in inheritance dispute through her role as a paralegal.

As we continue to grow, we listen to those we work with and continue to look for improved ways to support both our existing and new referrers – watch this space for the launch of the THE IDR NETWORK!

We’re an approachable, boutique, firm and the only one in the country dealing solely with inheritance dispute resolution. Whether you’re a law firm, or an individual who feels they would benefit from our expertise, get in touch here, email us at [email protected] or call on 01423 637050.
