Welcome to InBrief Spring/Summer 2021

Welcome to In Brief and a selection of legal news and updates, as well as some of our highlights as a firm from the last few months.

We will attend our first in person event at Viticulture Live on 10 June and look forward to seeing friends and contacts once again at this and some of the other traditional events in the rural and business calendar this summer.  Whilst procedures might be different as the post Covid world opens up again, we are here to support your business and personal legal needs at every stage.

We recently spoke to one of our clients in the hospitality sector, the team at Madisons’ Restaurant, Bar and Cocktail Lounge on Gabriels Hill, to find out how they have coped with the last year and to hear more about their exciting plans for the future. Read about this on page 8.

We believe it is important to support as many local businesses as we can and with that in mind, we continue to support the work of One Maidstone Business Improvement District and their new nature garden to brighten up the centre of the town. We also look forward to the launch of Elmer’s Big Heart of Kent Parade which goes live on 19 June.  This fantastic event will help to bring visitors to the town centre this summer – details on both on page 10.

Hailed as the largest ever miscarriage of justice, the Post Office Horizon IT scandal has seen a number of former post masters wrongly convicted.  Michelle Pibworth from our criminal team was delighted to represent one of the 39 people who had their conviction over-turned at the Court of Appeal in April and you can read more about this on page 9.

Finally, news about some of our new starters to the firm and learn more about Sunita Chauhan from our family team on page 12.

We look forward to seeing and speaking to you soon.
