Bevirs Law sponsors Christmas Trees in Royal Wootton Bassett for the next five years.

We were so pleased to be asked to sponsor the Christmas trees in Royal Wootton Bassett and have signed a contract to sponsor them for the next five years.

To celebrate this, on 1st December, we invited some long standing clients and local businesses along for some festive food and the odd glass of vino!

Thank you to everyone that attended, we had a lovely evening and hope you did too!

Legal Surgery regarding Powers of Attorney

In association with Swindon Supermarine Sports and Education Trust and Swindon Carers, Bevirs Law were asked to run a Legal Surgery regarding Powers of Attorney, The Court of Protection, Wills, Trusts and Probate.

Nicholas Sewell and Janet Strong who both presented at the Legal Surgery were delighted to have such a lovely and interactive crowd.

Janet “It was a pleasure to meet everyone and it is always interesting to hear the experiences of different people. I would like to thank everyone who raised individual queries, as I think these help bring the law to life as a practical subject, not just an academic one.

It highlights the huge benefits of talking face to face. Everybody’s circumstances are different, which is why we still like to meet clients to discuss their individual circumstances and priorities and then advise them on what is available and how they can achieve their own particular goals.”

We received some great feedback from the Carers that attended the surgery to include:

“Absolutely invaluable today to know you are getting professional advice”

“A really worthwhile event as it can be a mindfield for everyone especially carers”

“A really great day and useful information and advice given thank you”

Swindon Carers is a charitable organisation, which is part of the Carers Trust Network, and were established to provide help and support to the 21,000 carers in Swindon. To find out more about Swindon Carers Centre and what they can offer please click on the following link

Bevirs would also like to thank Swindon Supermarine Sports and Education Trust (SuperSET) for the use of the Trust Building setting the perfect environment for the audience and some of the tricky subjects we covered.

Bevirs provide work experience or Zac

We met Zac Lewis at the Ridgeway Careers fair in March this year and we were delighted when he subsequently got in touch and asked to participate in some work experience with us.

Zac will be progressing to Ridgeway Sixth Form later this year and hopes to undertake Sociology, History and English A-levels before embarking upon further education at either The University of Law or Bristol University to secure his future as a Family Solicitor.

It was a pleasure to host Zac who over the course of two days experienced various areas of high street practice. He spent time with Michelle Bowyer in our Family Team, Peter Shah in our Dispute Resolution Team and Janet Strong in our Wills and Estates Team.

It was lovely to hear how beneficial his time with us has been and how we have inspired him to become a successful Solicitor one day.

It was Michelle Bowyer who met Zac at the Careers Fair in March this year and has overseen his time with us. She enjoyed sharing her love of the law with Zac and was thrilled at Zac’s enthusiasm for this profession:

“It was lovely to see Zac again following our initial meeting in March. He demonstrated a genuine interest in what we do as solicitors and I was thrilled to hear from him that this experience has helped him decide not only what area he is likely to practice but also that the family feel and approachable nature of a high street practice is more appealing to him when looking at a future career. I wish Zac all the best with his studies between now and hopefully will see him at the year 12 careers fair in March 2019”.
