The health and safety of our staff and clients is our primary concern during this outbreak and as such we are reviewing the situation on a regular basis and will be adapting our working practices following government guidelines.

Following Government guidelines, we have temporarily closed all of our offices and our staff are now all working from home using secure technologies to ensure they are able to continue to progress with existing and new cases as normal. All face to face meetings have been cancelled, however we are continuing to hold these meetings via phone and video calls. All the team are contactable on their direct dial numbers and email should you need to speak with your solicitor, please do not hesitate to talk to us about anything during this time.

We know these are uncertain and unsettling times for many of our clients, and the wider population, and things might look a little different for the foreseeable future. But our focus remains on our dedication, knowledge and strength that we provide to all our clients. We will continue to provide updates over the coming days and weeks in accordance with official guidelines and to keep everyone informed of the situation.

As always, for any concerns, advice and updates on your case; Talk to Thompsons.

The Scottish Executive is committed to bringing forward laws to deal with corporate killing, Cathy Jamieson, the justice minister, has said.

Speaking at the Scottish Labour Party Conference in Inverness, she insisted that no-one who committed a crime would be above the law.

"So if legislation is needed to deal with corporate killing, we will bring forward legislation,' she said. "Too many people have told me that the scales of justice have tipped too far in favour of the lawbreaking few."

In his address to the conference, Bill Speirs, general secretary of the Scottish TUC, highlighted workplace health and safety. He said while safety law was still a matter for the Westminster parliament, the Scottish Executive and unions had been worked together to secure practical improvements. He added that Scotland's safety record was worse than in the UK as a whole, yet there were fewer prosecutions for safety breaches. These issues and others 'such as the introduction of a specific offence of corporate culpable homicide, are being taken forward in a positive way by the Executive,' he said.
