Odyssey News - January 2017


to the newest edition of the Odyssey newsletter!

This will be the last newsletter I welcome you to for a while as by the time you read this, I will be on maternity leave for my third baby. So I am handing over the reins to my newest recruit Laura Parker. Laura is a Solicitor and joined the Estates team in October and is already proving to be an excellent addition to our firm. Read all about Laura and her background at bit further on.

I would also like to introduce you to Nigel George, another Solicitor to join the Estates team to replace Richard Guy who left us in the summer. Nigel also has a feature in this addition so keep reading to find out about Nigel’s background.

The new appointments section has replaced the guest writer article in this edition, but we have the usual offering of an article from each of the three departments in Private Client namely, Estates, Family and Residential Conveyancing which I am sure you will find an interesting read.

As always, this is your newsletter and we want our member clients to get as much out of it as possible, so if there is a particular topic you would like us to feature, please do not hesitate to contact us.

I will leave you in Laura’s very capable hands and see you all again when I return to work!
