Covid-Safe at Alert Level 3

We are committed to being Covid-Safe at Level 3, and our staff will still be working remotely where possible.

At Level 3, MBIE requires that client meetings still need to be by telephone or AV/video call (the list of exceptions to this rule is very small and unlikely to apply to us). The good news is we have been having plenty of  video call meetings over lockdown and our systems are working well!

Property settlements are all happening through Level 3 and we have clients moving house again.

Also, if you have been a client for more than 12 months we can complete refinances for you in Level 3, so please get in touch with us, or get your banker or broker to get in touch with us, this is no problem at all.

Our premises are all cleaned and ready for Level 2  and we have our health and safety plan in place, so we’ll look forward to seeing you all again soon in “real life”.

Until then, keep safe and we hope you are all keeping well out there, enjoying this beautiful Autumn weather.

Uniting Against Covid-19

There are many ways New Zealanders can make a difference in the fight against Covid-19.  From staying home and maintaining social distancing to working in our supermarkets or essential medical and social services. Amongst the Corban Revell whānau we even have people using their 3D printers to create protective face shields.

One of the whānau has had their 3D printer working constantly during the lockdown producing face shields to be donated to NZ medical professionals and first responders.

Many Kiwi Makers are participating in this effort to help protect our front line personnel in the fight against Covid-19.  For further information, to volunteer or to make a donation please follow this link to the ShieldsUp webpage

Level 4 Alert – Update

With the updated guidance today we can advise as follows:
Corban Revell Lawyers will be working remotely until Level 4 is downgraded to Level 3 or lower. We know a lot of you are in the same position.
You can still ring our main line, direct lines and mobiles if you need assistance (when the networks aren’t overloaded that is). Our reception is being managed remotely. If you need to make arrangements for couriers please call our main line to find where to send them to.
You can still email us – details for most of our staff are on our website.
We are all set up to work remotely and we can still work on many things for you. We can still complete many types of property matters, but not all during Level 4.
Some Court matters have been delayed and your lawyer will keep you up to date about that. We can start to prepare new Court matters for you if you need.
While we are all in lockdown it may be a good time to reflect on matters relating to your business or personal matters that you have not had time to attend to recently. It may also be the that this lockdown has consequences for you or changed plans for you or your business and so you may have increased needs for advice over this time.
We are here to help, only a phone call or email away for a wide range of matters including:
  • Civil court matters
  • Leasing and lease disputes
  • Family law
  • Criminal matters
  • Property law including refinancing
  • Employment law
  • Immigration advice
  • Wills and estates
  • Commercial Matters Generally
  • Maori Land Matters
  • Legal Aid matters
Keep safe everyone and let us know what you need, we can help you out (except for flour to make bread! if anyone has any let us know!)
We look forward to seeing you all in person again in about 4 weeks and in the meantime we’ll be happy to Skype, FaceTime, message, call or email you.
