SME business owners requiring legal advice can have their questions answered for free this Wednesday by a panel of expert commercial lawyers, to coincide with the Chancellor’s Summer Budget.

LCF Law made social media history last summer when it became the first legal practice in the UK to offer free legal advice via Twitter.

On Wednesday 8th July at 1pm, SME owners can post questions on Twitter, using the hash tag #UKLegalHour, that LCF Law’s team of lawyers will answer via the company’s blog and on its free legal library.

Simon Stell, Managing Partner at LCF Law, which operates nationally from its three Yorkshire offices, says:

“Twitter has quickly evolved into an important marketing tool for our business and an effective way of providing answers to simple legal queries. Our ‘Legal Hours’ continually prove to be one of the highlights across all our social media activity. The sessions are always extremely well-received and generate a wide range of questions.

“With the Chancellor’s Summer Budget taking place on Wednesday afternoon, we’ve decided to focus this session at the SME market which forms a vital part of the economy and makes up around 99% of UK businesses. Issues that are likely to arise in the budget include proposals to change taxes, the economy, pensions and business in general, which all affect SMEs, so it’s a really opportune time for business owners and their staff to seek fast and straightforward answers to any legal questions they have.”
