In this, our fifth issue, we feature some of the interesting businesses that we are fortunate enough to work with, the first of which being C.M. Downton, a fast-growing Gloucestershire logistics company. Additionally, we raise a glass to craft beers with Two Crafty Brewers as well as introducing the Taylor family – a family of three generations, who are working alongside each other on the beautiful 480-hectare Swalcliffe estate.
From a legal perspective, we look at how land-based businesses could stand to benefit after a recent case involving tax, why a High Court decision could open doors for developers, and why businesses using ‘gig workers’ have recently been warned to check the employment status of their workforce.
Also in this issue, we will be introducing you to our new managing partner, Paul Mourton. Paul shares his exciting plans for the future, building on the many achievements of our outgoing managing partner Rod Bird, who hands over the reins after 17 years in the position.
Finally, we share with you some people news from the Lodders camp, including a big welcome to our new family law team following our merger with Divorce and Family Law Practice.
As always, we have thoroughly enjoyed putting Lodders Life together and we do hope you enjoy the read.
