We hope you are all keeping well, during these challenging weeks we are doing our best to stay positive and keep active and busy. We have launched some new internal staff initiatives within Leman Solicitors to stay in contact with each other regularly, as well as other collaborative projects together.

Although this year's Halloween will be a little different from those previously, we'll still be enjoying some treats and seasonal fun this weekend! See more on our social media pages which you can follow here on LinkedIn, Twitter and Instagram.

Our articles from the last two weeks include the latest news from our Employment team on amendments to the PUP and EWSS schemes, further Data Protection updates and European matters. We also feature new insights from our solicitors into examinership, foreign evidence and e-signatures.

We are also hiring for a new member of the team in an area run by our Employment department. You can find the full details here.

Happy Halloween!
