COVID-19 | An Update from Cullen Kilshaw

We are all living in uncertain times – our ‘new norm’. In uncertain times, it is our aim to provide certainty. At Cullen Kilshaw we are doing this by working smarter in the ways we practise law and deliver legal and property services to our clients to ensure that you receive uninterrupted services in a safe way.

Safety is foremost in our minds when taking day to day decisions about how we interact with our clients, professional colleagues and the ways in which we deliver legal and property services. We understand that social distancing and self-isolation can make attending legal meetings difficult or even impossible. To overcome this and for everyone’s safety, we have adapted our services to provide telephone and video conferencing services in place of in-person meetings. This means we can speak with you face to face via your computer, tablet or mobile. Using Microsoft Teams we are delivering services for both ongoing matters and new instructions.  Find out more… »

We would like to say a huge thank you to Wendy and Katz in the Galashiels office.  They were both very professional and couldn’t do more for us which made us feel at ease with our sale and purchase. A very friendly efficient team, thank you!

Max, January 2020

I would just like to say a big thank you to both Arlene and Katz in what was a difficult time in the sale of our property. In difficult market conditions they both stayed professional and purposeful all the way through to the eventual sale . Cullen Kilshaw is in good hands with reliable staff and a special mention to Katz for keeping me positive throughout.

“Thank you” never seems enough sometimes, does it?  But in our case we are very appreciative and thankful for all your help in administering my late Aunt’s estate.  You and your team have been outstanding and kindness itself to us.  We miss my Aunt deeply, and in the current climate of Coronavirus we are so very relieved she didn’t have to suffer any indignities.  Thank you Carol again, much appreciated.  All good wishes to you.

Alison, April 2020

Just wanted to say thank you for all the work you put into settling my late Aunt’s Estate, and the sale of her house.  I felt this was all done in an efficient and professional manner.  Please thank any members of your team who assisted in the various stages. My Aunt would have been pleased with her choice of Cullen Kilshaw.  Thank you.

Julie, August 2020

We would like to publicly thank all the teams in Melrose and Galashiels for their understanding of the local market and can do attitude, it was a delight to speak with everyone being so excited and passionate about the sale of our property, I myself have been in sales for the last 30 years so I know it can be very challenging, the end result the sale of our house was a delight to everybody! Many thanks.
