Over the past few months, there has been an unprecedented shift in our usual way of life. As children return to schools and we move to a ‘new normal’, Hegarty Solicitors can offer a range of services to support you with changes to family life.

Changes at work

Many employees have found work has changed beyond recognition in recent months, from working different hours or from home whilst home-schooling or caring for children, increased hours for keyworkers or reduced hours and redundancies for some, many people are having to adjust and cope with changes at work as a result of the pandemic.

Our employment law team is experienced in dealing with all types of employment issues, including redundancies, settlement agreements, unfair dismissal and discrimination claims. Every day we support employees and workers with a range of work-related problems. Whatever your situation, we can help.

Planning for the future

We recognise that few people are comfortable talking about later life or post-death matters. Decisions about who should care for children should the worst happen, who should inherit a property, how care home fees should be met, or who should manage your affairs and personal welfare should you not be able to, can easily be put aside.

However, during these uncertain times, it is important to plan for the future. Our highly experienced team can help you focus on the practicalities to ensure your hard-earned assets are protected for future generations and your wishes are carried out.
