Social BusinessClub

The need for socialBC is based upon the certainty that most online-communities alone cannot build a sustainable communication AND CSR-PR-network for the world’s people. Most known networks are only pure business or pure relation-based. socialBC goes one step further and serves those who seek to breathe certainty into their desire to impact a longer-term online-sustainability of their organisations; socialBC provides a home for the ‘meeting of minds’.

Woolley & Co, Solicitors
wooley co, solicitors

When Andrew Woolley established Woolley & Co in 1996 he wanted to offer clients a new style of legal service, focused on the client not the lawyer. Most law firms have offices, in city centre locations, often well away from where their clients are located. Woolley & Co breaks this mould. There are no offices, just plain speaking legal specialists linked to each other and clients by phone, mail and email links. If you need to see a Woolley & Co lawyer they'll visit you, either at your home, or workplace, in fact anywhere that's convenient.

 

Woolley & Co has specialist lawyers working with small and medium sized companies and organisations that trade or want to trade on the Internet. We work with such companies to make sure they trade effectively, within the law, and don't face nasty surprises or hefty fines for getting it wrong.

We're known for practical solutions in plain English, being fast and responsive and providing a big firm service at small firm rates. Our website www.business-lawfirm.co.uk has lots of practical information and advice for businesses whether they are just starting out, expanding or having difficulties. To keep abreast of the latest legal issues why not sign up to our e-zine by visiting http://www.e-lawfirm.co.uk/ezine/default.asp

 

And if you know of anybody unfortunate enough to be divorcing, you can help them by referring them to our specialist site www.divorce-lawfirm.co.uk where they will find lots of free information and assistance.
