McKees partners with financial firms to support SMEs during coronavirus
Belfast law firm McKees has partnered with accountancy firm Harbinson Mulholland and financial services practice Kerr Henderson to support small and medium enterprises during the coronavirus pandemic.
The new SME Support Forum will provide free guidance and support to businesses impacted by the crisis through a series of regular webinars over the next few weeks.
McKees, previously John McKee Solicitors, rebranded earlier this month following a major £250,000 investment in its offices and staff.
Chris Ross, managing partner of McKees, said: “We are seeing businesses closing across the province, thousands of people are losing their jobs, employers are accommodating sick and worried employees, insurance policies are not being covered and there is massive disruption to supply chains. And some businesses just don’t know where to turn to for help.
“We have partnered with Harbinson Mulholland and Kerr Henderson to set up the SME Support Forum which is specifically for people in Northern Ireland who own an SME business and are currently worried about their livelihood and that of the people who work for them. We are here to help get people the practical information they need at this terrible time.”
He added: “We are encouraging SMEs to get in touch with the questions and issues they need help and support with at this time and we will do our very best to guide them in the right direction.”
