Our Rose Green office will close on Friday 2nd February 2024 at 4pm, after which time our employees will be working from our Worthing office.
We want to reassure you that we will still be able to look after your legal requirements as we have always done and provide the same service to you either in your own home or in our other local offices. We can also offer telephone appointments and virtual meetings as appropriate.
The telephone number will be the same and your documents will remain in safe custody for you. Rita Sen, Alan Moody and Meredith Stone will still be able to see you and will remain your point of contact.
In these ways we will continue to support you and look after your legal affairs as we have always done so.
You may have additional questions and we hope to cover these in the FAQs below.
WHAT HAPPENS BETWEEN NOW AND FEBRUARY 2024?
We will still be able to see you at our Rose Green office and all of our employees will be present as before.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER 2ND FEBRUARY 2024?
Our Rose Green office will close, and we will be based in our Worthing office. The full postal address for this office is below.
WHY IS THIS HAPPENING?
Our team is being consolidated at our Worthing office. We believe this will enable us to provide you with an enhanced Private Client service, including joining up with our specialist Court of Protection team at Worthing.
You may also be aware that Coole Bevis LLP offer an extensive range of other services which will then be more readily available to you. If you wish to meet us at our Worthing office or one of our other offices across Sussex, we shall be delighted to see you. Our offices are in Brighton, Hove, Horsham and Worthing.
WHERE WILL MY DOCUMENTS BE STORED?
Your documents, including Wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney, will be stored safely and securely as before, by Coole Bevis LLP without any change.
HOW DO I MAKE AN APPOINTMENT, COLLECT SOMETHING TO SIGN FOR OR PROVIDE ID?
After our Rose Green office has closed, please post documents to Rita Sen or Alan Moody at the Worthing postal address, detailed below. Alternatively, we can deal with these during one of our meetings. Where appropriate we may also be able to handle the matter virtually or electronically e.g., over email. If you encounter a difficulty in this respect, we will of course be happy to help you or consider reasonable adjustments.
WHERE WILL WE MEET?
We can meet you at any of our offices in Brighton, Hove, Horsham and Worthing. For those with particular needs, where attendance at an office would be difficult, we can offer free home visits to clients who live within a 10-mile radius of any of our offices, including the Rose Green premises.
We are also happy to explore and consider other meeting options with you as appropriate and if required.
WILL THE FEES INCREASE?
There will be no change in fees as a result of the closure of the Rose Green office. Our fees are always reviewed in April of each year which will continue as you would expect.
HOW CAN I CONTACT YOU?
All your usual legal contacts will be available on the same direct dial number and office number as before. Our main switchboard number remains: 01243 263658.
Direct dial: 01243 269124
