Latest Podcast

Vernon Hadida, a senior partner at Thomas Dunton, and Clive Bull, host of LBC’s Legal Hour, held another very successful programme in the series on Monday evening when members of the public phoned in with their legal problems. During the live broadcast,Vernon answered many interesting and varied questions from listeners. For Thomas Dunton, being able to hear concerns and views from the general public is a great way to keep in touch with how people view the legal profession, what the main issues are and how we can reach out and help.

Since joining the programme, we now offer free monthly talks in local libraries and to various groups on a variety of legal subjects that affect us all such as Wills, Lasting Powers of Attorney, Inheritance Tax, Care Home fees. etc.
