Over three lunchtimes in April (15th/22nd/29th) we hosted events for existing and prospective clients across a variation of themes. These included the Agri-Food industry, company law and also property and related taxation. Each week in the Ormonde Hotel we had a guest lead speaker who was a specialist in their area, and then some partners and managers from the firm would speak on related areas of their own expertise. All themes were carefully chosen as to reflect relevant current issues that our clients face, and what plans and measures could be put in place to best protect and grow family wealth.

The schedule over the three lunchtime talks was as follows:
