A CITY law firm is launching a new series of free webinars this month.

Thursfields Solicitors is launching the webinars, with the first focused on making a will.

Deborah Beal, an associate solicitor in the firm’s wills and estates department, will host the first Talk Legal webinar at 10am on Wednesday 3 June.

Ms Beal will introduce the webinar live to all attendees on Zoom, before playing them a short vidcast on “Making a Will”, then returning to the screen to answer any questions.

Nick O’Hara, managing director at Thursfields, said: “We’re well known for our regular free workshops for businesses and the community, and have always been keen to widen the audience for our legal guidance.

“Because it’s not currently possible to hold physical events, we’ve started recording a series of vidcasts on different legal topics, and we now want to use these interactively online.

“Now that everyone’s getting used to Zoom, we thought it would be a great way to help people become more aware of those legal jobs they want to get round to.

“Seeking legal advice might be a new or daunting experience for some, but our Talk Legal webinars will all feature our lawyers directly speaking to people live online.

“We hope this will help put our clients and potential new clients at ease as well as inform them about the steps they may need to take if they have a legal issue.”

The next two Talk Legal webinars are also in planning, with one covering “Divorce” and the other focused on “Mergers & Acquisitions.

Mr O’Hara added: “Our lawyers have done a fantastic job at adapting to social distancing requirements whilst still delivering a first-rate service to our clients.

“Our new Talk Legal webinars are another example of the way we’re using technology to make sure our guidance is widely available to everyone.”
