Welcome to our April Legal Bulletin

Welcome to the Watson Buckle Legal Bulletin, bringing you up-to-date news and information on the financial matters facing law firms.

This edition looks at: news that solicitors are being urged to avoid Employment Tribunals due to fears that a large backlog of claims will result in cases taking much longer to close; concerns that law firms and conveyancers need to take a better approach when advising first-time buyers; and, finally, news of a solicitor who has been fined £15,000 by the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal (SDT) over the misuse of a client bank account.

We hope you enjoy reading our Legal Bulletin and find it useful. We welcome your feedback and ideas for topics so please get in touch with Chris Padgett at chrisp@watsonbuckle.co.uk or call 01274 516705.
