Welcome to this month’s edition of Private Client Issues, Blake Morgan’s monthly round-up of the topics you may find of interest. It features insight and advice on developments affecting private individuals.
As the UK continues to get back to the office, we are focussed on providing you with a high-quality service, while working to keep our staff, clients and contacts safe. Our offices are all open and we are continuing with a phased increase in attendance whilst enabling social distancing to be maintained. We remain happy to meet with you virtually, or in person where this is preferred. We are really proud of the way that our staff have risen to the challenge without impacting the service we provide.
