Welcome to our Summer Newsletter, which we hope you find helpful and interesting.

It has been a busy few months here at Hayes. We recently announced the promotion of two new partners in our Property and Healthcare departments, both are very well deserved.

Our Corporate team and Banking and Financial Services Department continue to grow with a number of new appointments, as with other parts of the firm. The ongoing expansion and development of the firm only occurs because of the support of our clients, for which we are very appreciative.

In this Newsletter, we update you with a number of issues and insights which will be relevant to you and your business.

As always, please feel free to contact me at any stage, whether in connection with anything in this edition of the newsletter, or anything else. I always welcome hearing from clients and contacts.
