    Some will be - specifically those associated themselves with key functions like the NHS. But your average M&A lawyer can probably stay at home and sort out his braces collection.

    This rule is poorly drafted and is causing confusion.: Some legal professionals, primarily those involved in court and tribunal hearings, as well as those advising people deprived of their liberty or on executing wills are considered ‘key workers’ by the government. Other legal professionals, by inference, are not within the definition.
