Talking Works - April 2019

April 2019-Issue 7

A very warm welcome to our Spring edition of Talking Works.  I am grateful to our guest contributors this month: Rebecca Heaton of Savills writes about the need for expert valuations for property and land, and Gavin Wood of Becketts writes about the need to plan financially for life post-separation.  In addition, my Family Team colleagues Georgie Hall and Victoria Mayhew set out respectively the very real benefits to clients of early assessment of the most appropriate style of resolution, and, what to do when disclosure and privacy issues collide.  Finally, my Employment and Data Protection colleague Emma Loveday-Hill continues the privacy theme and applies this to work email communications.  I hope you enjoy this issue.

Kind regards

Georgina Rayment

Head of Family
