A family firm set up by high-profile divorce lawyer Ayesha Vardag has begun consulting on redundancies, blaming delays in the court system as a result of the pandemic.
Around 10 jobs could be at risk at Vardags, which has offices in London, Cambridge, Manchester, Oxford and Winchester.
Stephen Bence, director of strategy, said: ‘The past few months have been incredibly challenging for many firms. While demand from clients has remained strong, delays in the court system have slowed down the progress of cases with many hearings adjourned.
‘We have, therefore, very regrettably and with great sadness been forced to initiate a redundancy process. We have delayed this decision for as long as we could because we value every member of our staff and there is no one we want to lose. But this unprecedented time has obliged us to make very difficult decisions.’
