Unlocking Britain’s business: a roadmap to recovery

After a long and arduous year, British business is getting back to work and readying for recovery following the gradual lifting of Covid-19 restrictions. 

For those running businesses, there will be a huge sense of relief that after two national lockdowns, we are rapidly approaching a full reopening in our villages, towns and cities.

According to the government’s own timeline, measures brought in to control the spread of the virus will be gradually eased between mid-April and 21 June – which has been dubbed ‘Freedom Day’, because most Covid-19 restrictions will be gone.

But impending change will also bring challenge for businesses of all sizes. Many of you will be considering:

  • How many staff actually need to return to the office?
  • How can remote-working practices be safely integrated into your business for the long-haul?
  • What are the data security risks of working in a post-Covid age and how they can be overcome?
  • How can you benefit from the UK tech boom which has emerged from this crisis? 

To help you and your teams get back to work safely and efficiently as lockdown is lifted, our legal experts have created a roadmap to recovery guide which aims to answer many of these questions and more. 

Check everything’s above board for your team’s return, or for hybrid working.

Our property experts offer help on how to make changes to your commercial lease.

Changes in your business may mean you need to restructure your team or consider redundancies.
