Working with providers to help minimise disruption during the London Olympics
Our London regional office is close to three Olympic venues, so, there is likely to be significant disruption to post and other services in July and August.
Given the expected disruption to postal services, you may have delays receiving correspondence:
- from our London office on civil certificated matters.
- within Greater London from any LSC office.
We aim to phone or email providers with decisions in urgent cases.
During the Games, you can email genuinely urgent enquiries about civil certificated cases, handled by Exchange Tower, to London@legalservices.gsi.gov.uk
In relation to the other services provided from Exchange Tower:
Immigration and Asylum Legal Applications
For immediate applications providers can use the emergency fax line on 020 7718 8092 or applications for extensions to controlled work, emergency amendments to certificated funding and faxed emergency applications to ImmigrationQueries@legalservices.gsi.gov.uk.
