Private Client Issues – June 2021


10th June 2021

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 its cautious approach to re-opening, 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 but with reduced capacity to enable social distancing to be maintained. This means employees continue to work from home, but can attend the office where there is a business need. We remain happy to meet with you virtually, or in person where this is necessary and can be done in accordance with Government guidelines. We are really proud of the way that our staff have risen to the challenge without impacting the service we provide.
