Rix & Kay aims to make law easy for its clients, and when the pandemic started it made home-working as easy as possible for its staff.

A questionnaire was sent to all colleagues early in lockdown asking for feedback on operating remotely, including comments on resources and stresses, and the firm continuously updated the team about its activities via the intranet and Yammer. The managing partner provided email updates on significant changes in government guidance and legislation.

Microsoft Teams was adopted for use throughout the business for both work and social activities, including departmental meetings, quarterly check-ins and quiz nights.

Rix & Kay is one of the largest law firms in southeast England, with offices in Ashford, Brighton and Hove, Seaford, Sevenoaks and Uckfield. Staff provide a full range of legal services for business owners, entrepreneurs and individuals.

The firm aims to be the legal employer of choice in the southeast and to be a successful growing business. A group was set up early last year to identify and deliver on a five-year action plan, known as Project 2025. The group includes employees from across the firm's locations and varying levels of seniority.

Rix & Kay has a long history of engagement with charitable and community organisations, as legal adviser and supporter. Many of these organisations, particularly sports clubs, saw their revenues affected by the pandemic, but the firm made a decision to continue its support.

I have confidence in the leadership skills of the senior management team
