This edition looks at: important new guidance issued by the Law Society ahead of the introduction of the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR); new research indicating that the UK’s commercial law market is set to expand substantially in the near future; and, finally, a damning report which suggests that legal aid cuts are weighing very heavily on criminal defence lawyers.

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.
