Macmillan coffee morning

Macmillan coffee morning

Broomhead & Saul are supporting the national charity, Macmillan Cancer Support, by participating in the world’s biggest coffee morning event this coming Thursday 17 September 2020.

Mel Dodds and her colleagues from our Ilminster office will be running a coffee and cakes stall at Ilminster’s charming historic market building from 9 am.

Mel promises some delicious treats for our coffee morning next Thursday. There will be lemon drizzle cake, chocolate brownies, flapjacks, to name but a few!

We look forward to seeing you!

The need has never been greater

Cancer research and care is in the midst of a funding crisis due to the knock on effects of Covid-19.

Broomhead & Saul’s successful reform campaign

We all need to be resilient and innovative in the face of this pandemic.

Broomhead & Saul recently led a highly successful snap reform campaign to enable those particularly vulnerable to Covid-19 to use video technology to witness their wills.  In doing so they challenged the well-entrenched opposition of the legal profession, including the Law Commission, before appealing direct to the government.  The government then issued Guidance in July based on our research and recommendations.  More recently, it has laid The Wills Act 1837 (Electronic Communications) (Amendment) (Coronavirus) Order 2020 before Parliament.  This gives formal effect to this for a two year period backdated to 31 January 2020.
