Covid-19 and Service Delivery

Somek and Associates remains very much open for business, with some staff working on-site and some off-site at home using a secure remote connection. There will always be an on-site senior manager presence who will also hold responsibility for ensuring the smooth running of our service across the different locations. Our experts continue to remain busy and are engaging in all aspects of the expert witness role. Face to face assessments are still happening, but with reference to the Public Health England advice, and we are taking all appropriate and reasonable precautions to ensure the safety of our experts and claimants. We continue to have capacity available for new case instructions in both liability and quantum fields. If you have any queries in respect of the precautionary measures we are taking or a case specific query please do get in touch.

Please note we have a emergency contact number available from 5.30pm on a Friday to 11pm on a Sunday to enable experts and clients or claimants to inform us if they find themselves unable to attend an imminently scheduled assessment (all claimants are provided with this on their appointments letters). The number is: 07538 330035. At all other times our usual office number applies: 01494 792711.
