Willans teams up with Cheltenham Chamber to offer legal clinic to businesses

08 April 2013

Willans has joined forces with the Cheltenham Chamber of Commerce to offer a legal business clinic for local members.

Our experienced lawyers are giving their time to meet with business owners and managers in Cheltenham on Thursday 16 May, enabling them to discuss their legal needs with us, free of charge.

The clinic is available to members of the Cheltenham Chamber of Commerce. Non-members can take advantage of the legal clinic by joining the Chamber now for as little as £80 per year.

Hosting the clinic are Paul Symes-Thompson, who heads up our corporate practice, and Matthew Clayton, who leads our employment team. Paul has extensive experience of corporate transactions and commercial agreements in the UK and internationally, including joint ventures, acquisitions and disposals. Matthew handles both contentious and non-contentious employment law issues for clients. His particular specialisms include staff restructurings, business transfers, directorship and shareholding issues, advising on restrictions on competition imposed on ex-employees and the protection of confidential business information.

Michael Ratcliffe, Cheltenham Chamber Chief Executive Officer of Chamber of Commerce said: “It is the Chamber’s aim to help local businesses succeed and by teaming up with firms like Willans we can provide our members with real value. We are grateful to Willans for giving up their time to deliver this legal clinic.

“Whether you’re a small company or large enterprise, don’t miss out on this valuable service. It’s an open discussion in which you can ask for free help and advice on any legal matter concerning your business. Sessions like these more than compensate for the cost of chamber membership.”

The clinic is on Thursday 16 May between 9am-12pm at the Cheltenham Chamber of Commerce office in Trafalgar Street, Cheltenham.

To make an appointment please contact Pauline Harris at Cheltenham Chamber of Commerce on info@cheltenhamchamber.org.uk
