Merry and Bright

That’s us.  We do hope that you and your days are too.

It’s been a busy 2018, but a fantastic one. We’ve had lots of growth, including:

  • wonderful new additions to the HRC Law team;
  • great new partnerships forged (LawPact and Northern Power Hive, to name just two); and
  • of course, clients.

Thank-you all (whether you’re a new client or contact, or an existing one) for your support throughout the year.

Here’s to another year of working together in 2019.
