Special Bulletin - Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Updated Monday 3 August 2020

An update regarding COVID-19 to our valued clients and associates

Daniel Andrews has confirmed that under Stage 4 ‘Stay at Home’ Restrictions, workplaces in the metropolitan Melbourne area will be required to close from 11.59pm on Wednesday 5 August 2020.

This means that from 11.59pm on Wednesday 5 August our entire HOCW team will be working from home.  All communication with our clients and associates will be via zoom, phone and email.  We are very happy to assist you should you need help in sending information electronically or if you need help with zoom meetings.

At Hicks Oakley Chessell Williams we have been moving towards operating electronically for some years. That is not to say that we are paper-free, but our systems in our different practice areas largely operate electronically. This now allows our team members to operate remotely.

Please continue to contact us as usual and do not hesitate to get in touch with your usual contact if you have any questions.

We are working to ensure the health and safety of our team, clients, referrers and wider community. Thank you for working with us in these uncertain times.
