In response to the uncertainties presented by Covid-19, all ORJ employees have been fully briefed, and we have taken the appropriate steps to mitigate any risks associated with Covid-19, following all Government guidance.

The wellbeing of our clients and employees is our priority.

At ORJ Law, we have various collaboration platforms to enable remote working to ensure our solicitors are on-hand ready to assist clients with all their legal needs. We have a robust contingency plan in place with 24/7 IT support, which enables us to operate from any location effectively and securely, ensuring no interruption is made to the delivery of our services. These collaboration platforms include Microsoft Teams – a platform that combines chat, video meetings and file storage with the Office 365 subscription. FaceTime – available on iOS devices to allow visual calling between Apple devices. All calls are encrypted and are not recorded. A unique Apple ID is also required to make and receive FaceTime calls. WhatsApp for Business Video Calls – this allows users to make voice and video calls with other devices that have downloaded the WhatsApp application. There is end-to-end encryption included, which can help to avoid calls and files from being accessed by unauthorised users.

We are continually embracing new technology.
