McNeil & Co Solicitors is the new trading name of the Firm

As of 10th March 2021, the Firm will now be practising under the name McNeil & Co Solicitors. 

The Firm has been known as Andrew Jay & Co for nearly 40 years, since 1983. 

In 2009 when Philip Hanby acquired the practice, the decision was made to continue trading under the name Andrew Jay & Co because that is what many of our clients were familiar with and Andrew Jay had only just sold the Firm. 

Following the acquisition of the Firm by Mark McNeil in 2020, the decision has been made to rename the Firm to McNeil & Co Solicitors. 

It is felt that the time is right for this change of name given how long it has been since Andrew Jay stopped managing/working for the Firm in a regular capacity. Mr McNeil is of course a very popular Solicitor within the Lincolnshire and surrounding areas in his own right and the new name more accurately reflects the current composition of the Firm. 

We will continue to offer the same high standard of service to all of our clients as we always have.

England Coronavirus lockdown - November to December 2020

Our clients will no doubt be aware that England is now in another lockdown, currently due to last until 2nd December 2020. This places various restrictions upon us all. 

We would like to reassure you that Andrew Jay & Co will be continuing to operate as normal during the lockdown period. We will still be able to advise and represent you at the Police Station and at Court.  

We will be working remotely where possible, but where that is not possible we will still be able to arrange face to face appointments. 

Please continue to ask for Andrew Jay & Co or one of our lawyers by name if you are arrested or are appearing at Court and require advice and representation. 

You may also be wondering how the lockdown affects your obligations to attend Court or the Police Station. Fulfilling a legal obligation is one of the acceptable reasons for leaving your home, which means you will still be required to attend Court or the Police Station if required to do so (e.g. if you are on bail or have received a summons to attend Court). If you are experiencing symptoms of Coronavirus and/or are self-isolating then you should not attend, but should let us know as soon as possible so that we can try to assist you in having your matter moved. 

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
