Hello & Welcome – from the 2015/16 firms!

Hello and welcome from the SLO business & commercial firms of 2015/2016!

Our SLO business & commercial firms are full of interesting and talented individuals who are all eager to advise local businesses, charities and entrepreneurs.

Many of us have already had wide-ranging experience of working with clients, including work experience within a law firm, and volunteering with the Citizens Advice Bureau and Newcastle Law Centre. We are really looking forward to having a great year working in the fantastic award-winning SLO’s business & commercial firms.

We are hoping for a variety of cases to allow us to develop our knowledge and understanding of the different aspects of business and commercial law. We love to be kept busy, whether it’s researching, drafting, interviewing or reflecting on our experiences!

We have a number of new blog posts in the pipeline. They include information about changes to the law and news about events we’ve attended. Please do keep checking back on the blog for more information.
