COMMERCIAL law firm Muckle LLP is helping businesses through the COVID-19 crisis with a free helpdesk, designed to support businesses and organisations dealing with the impact of coronavirus.

Businesses can call or email to speak to a lawyer, who will listen to their situation and signpost to the right information or, if it’s appropriate, arrange for access the right legal advice.

The helpline can be used for anything from concerns about cashflow to paying people during the crisis, or a dispute with another business.

As part of the support service, Muckle LLP will highlight any free material that might help business owners navigate through their issues, or direct businesses to their specialist teams if they need additional assistance.

There’s no charge for businesses’ initial enquiries, and those seeking support will receive a clear, no obligation, fee proposal to consider before any legal advice is provided.

Call 0191 211 7773 or email for more information. Guidance on a range of issues affecting businesses during the crisis is also available at
