Maucher Jenkins is carefully following government guidance to ensure that appropriate action is taken to care for the health and safety of our staff, but also to ensure that business continuity is maintained.
Following the most recent guidance from the UK and German Governments, all of our staff in the UK are now working remotely, and our UK Offices are closed. A redirection system is set up for all incoming calls and mail being sent to our UK Offices and this will be managed as usual.
Our staff in Germany are, in the main, working remotely, with a skeleton staff attending the offices on a daily basis. We will continue to maintain a skeleton staff in our offices where government guidance deems this to be possible.
Through our well-established remote working practices, Maucher Jenkins will be able to run operations without any interruption and will continue to provide an excellent service to our clients.
Following the significant business interruption caused by COVID-19, the Intellectual Property Offices in the UK, Germany and EU have indicated that there will be some relaxation of deadlines.
