With the Covid-19 pandemic, BWF has had to work remotely and moved some of their business online. Currently, the team are working both remotely and from the office (with enhanced personal hygiene and social distancing), although purely by appointment so they keep to HM Government guidance. Should a client wish to instruct them, they can do so remotely by mobile phone, FaceTime, Skype or WhatsApp Video call, and email. Additionally, they have also used this time to improve their online content, both on their website and on social media handles. However, when a client visits the office, they are provided with hand washing facilities, disposal face mask and hand sanitizer. Going forward, expansion is on the cards for BWF, as Bennard is currently looking to expand more north, and have offices in Milton Keynes, Birmingham, and Manchester. There are also plans to expand into Africa as well with an office in Accra Ghana almost completed. These plans are just an indicator of the successes that BWF have enjoyed in the last fourteen years. They truly are deserving of being named Immigration Lawyers of the Year 2020 - South East England. Contact: BWF Solicitors Company: Bennard Owusu Web Address:
