Last month, we sponsored the More Radio Live event in Worthing. It was highly entertaining and featured five tribute acts, The Spice Girls, Lewis Capaldi, Ed Sheeran, Kylie Minogue and George Michael. They performed the biggest songs of the last three decades and the crowd had a great time singing and dancing along, even when it started to rain towards the end of the night. Normality was restored as thousands of people gathered together to enjoy the occasion.Read More »

We are proud of our team for their hard work and dedication, while we have always seen it as important to offer career progression opportunities. This month we are delighted to announce that Simon Brooks has become our first trainee solicitor to qualify as a solicitor.
Simon joined us in August 2018 as the first paralegal we employed. At the time we operated from a tiny office in the roof above a small accountancy practice, trading under the insurance and regulatory umbrella of another law firm which Jonathan had joined as a consultant back in 2013. Despite being in our infancy Jonathan was able to interview several recent law school leavers for the role and eventually selected Simon due to his high academic grades, extra-curricular achievements and sense of ambition.Read More »
What are employee share option plans and why would you implement them?
Employee share options provide employees with rights to acquire shares in a company (usually the employing company or a member of the same group) at a pre-agreed fixed price (often called the exercise price or strike price) in the future.
