Good afternoon, thank you for your question. Most firms are still not working with full staff capacity, in addition their storage facilites are usually off site and require notice to retrieve files and documents. Two weeks is rather optimistic, I would think reasonably four weeks before you would look to start chasing.

Kind regards

Marian
