The Covid diaries: Day 19 - Wine Time

The Covid diaries: Day 19 - Wine Time

A daily fly-on-the-wall blog about running a legal business during the Covid-19 crisis.

By Darren Isaacs - 9 April

A brief diary entry today.

Frankly, it has been busy again, the sun is out, the long weekend beckons, and most importantly at 5pm (i.e. now) we are having firm (virtual) wine time.

I am leaving this week with one settlement agreement done and (almost) dusted, and another one well and truly on the way.

I am also helping a handful of clients with their template contracts, policies and so forth - all new instructions in the past few days. Not necessarily as exciting as a High Court injunction, but given the amount of pain many businesses are going through right now it feels good - actually great - to be doing something on the 'positive' side of the ledger for some clients, rather than just focusing on furlough.

Speaking of furlough, we had another update from HMRC on its scheme rules overnight, via twitter (where would lawmakers be without it, huh?). So that has also kept us busy today, as we scramble to issue furlough update #1,000,000. You can read all about that on our main website.

Have a great long weekend everyone (for those who are having one). Regular diary service will re-commence on Tuesday!
