SOLICITORS' BREAKFAST CLUB

Welcome to our 2015/16 Programme of Solicitors' Breakfast Briefings

Following a number of requests from solicitors across the county for updates on specific accountancy-related topics, we have decided to launch a series of seminars designed to arm legal professionals with key information.

The programme for 2015/16 focuses on the four key topics which attract the most enquiries from solicitors. Our team of experts at Dyke Yaxley will be concentrating on imparting relevant and concise information to present you with everything you need to know.

A couple of other pieces of good news.  Firstly, each of our four seminars will contribute to your personal professional development schedule when you attend.  And secondly, we will be providing breakfast and as much tea and coffee as you can drink!

Each of the seminars will be held at both our headquarters located in Brassey Road, Shrewsbury and Stafford Park, Telford.  You can choose the location that suits you best.  There is ample parking at both venues.  Timings of the seminars have been designed so that the working day isn't interupted, with a 7.30 am start and finish time of 9.00 am.
