Free advice from a lawyer? Parfitt Cresswell of Fulham want to help

We're lucky to have so many helpful businesses in the borough and I never fail to be impressed by the number of firms who love trading with local people and doing their bit to help which is what has prompted this blog.

Parfitt Cresswell - a great local law firm based at Fulham Broadway  - publish a really helpful e-newsletter every month.  I've read similar pieces for years now and very often they suffer from being lawyer talking to lawyer but the Parfitt Cresswell one is different.  They cover relevant stories and they do it with great clarity.  It is exactly what you want from that kind of service - brief, comprehensive, clearly written.

Here are the title headings from the March newsletter to give you a flavour:

Also, if you own a business in the area and you're concerned about any aspect of law you can call Parfitt Cresswell (mentioning thebestof) and get up to 30 minutes free to talk about whatever is keeping you up at night. It might be your customer contracts, employment practices, website T&C's or even your health and safety policy being up to date an in line with current regulations.  Give them a call and they will give you some topline advice so you can form a plan.
