LWF would like to keep you updated with our work plans due to COVID-19 and the most recent government advice.

It is our duty to you as our customers to continue to support you in these unprecedented times.  Our dedication to everyone and especially to our clients is our main priority and we stay here to help.

Our working practices have changed to ensure the health and well-being of the LWF team is at the forefront. Our office will stay open but as a precaution, many of our staff will be working from home. We believe that thanks to the excellent remote IT system this will allow us to continue working with you and be here for you when needed.

Please note that we will be arranging meetings by telephone where possible and face to face meetings both at our premises and yours will be reduced to minimum.

LWF will make sure to let you know of any changes to the business that may affect you during this period.  For any queries, please contact us on 0208 668 8663 or email

We will continue to offer you our full support during this time.
