Message from DSC on 'Remote Working' Guidelines


Dear Friends of Doughty Street,

During this public health emergency we at DSC are, of course, following the firm instruction to work from home, where possible. We are pleased to have made a very successful and rapid transition to operating remotely but appreciate that our professional clients will face more significant challenges.  We are particularly mindful of those who are discharging professional responsibilities whilst caring for children or vulnerable adults.   We are committed to working flexibly with you as we develop - together - new ways of working.

Our ‘remote working’ status is, of course, dependent on our receiving from you all instructions, papers and updates in electronic form and we are extremely grateful for the immediate and radical fall in physical papers received in chambers over the last week or two. 

We would also be grateful if instructions might follow the following guidelines – we appreciate many of you follow the requested approach already.  Our concern is not to inadvertently lose or overlook important documents.

Many thanks,

Doughty Street Chambers
