Lawgistics Christmas Break Closure 2019

Our office will be closed from 12.00pm on 24th December 2019, until Thursday 2nd January 2020.

We would advise all members that any Court papers that have a deadline during or just after this date should be sent to us as soon as possible, as we will be unable to deal with them during the office closure. We also strongly recommend that any other paperwork that requires our attention should reach us no later than Thursday 19th December.

It is a good idea to keep an eye on the post over the festive period, even if you are on your own annual break, as you don’t want to be caught out by court deadlines. If you receive a County Court Claim over the Christmas/New Year break, fill in the one sheet document headed up ‘Response Pack/Acknowledgement of Service’, take a photocopy and then send it by Recorded Delivery back to the Court where it was issued by First Class mail or E-mail. In this way you will gain time to be able to respond with a more considered Defence to the claim than by rushing something damaging off straightaway. If the claim is issued via the court online system, you will need to log in and extend the deadline (instructions will be sent with the claim).

Also, if you receive a document called ‘Directions Questionnaire’ please make sure you get it back to the Court before the cut-off date.

We would like to wish all members and clients a very Happy Christmas and New Year.
