On Monday the Victorian Premier announced the impact of Stage 4 restrictions on businesses in metropolitan Melbourne. A copy of the Guide for business – stage 4 restrictions (Word) can be found here.

With Stage 4 restrictions and a declaration of a state of disaster in place, we are required to close the firm's Bourke Street office for onsite work. We will do this from 5:30pm, Wednesday 5 August until we are permitted to re-open for onsite work.

We have, since late March, been working remotely away from our Bourke Street office. Our IT Systems and the use of various virtual meeting technologies have enabled us to continue to deliver timely and quality services to our clients.

The Stage 4 restrictions will result in very little change for us other than the Bourke Street office being unattended. We remain ready to provide assistance to our clients and networks through this difficult time. There will be no interruptions to our services.

Please make use of the mobile numbers and email addresses of Logie-Smith Lanyon personnel during this time. If you do not have them readily available, you will be able to find contact details in the footer of emails and letters.

You can also call our office number on +61 3 9628 4100.

If you need to deliver documents to us, please discuss arrangements with the Logie-Smith Lanyon contact relevant to your matter before doing so.

Where we are permitted, we will use DocuSign for documents requiring execution.
