SOLICITORS AmicusLaw have launched a series of regular networking lunches at The Castle Hotel in Taunton.

Guests from a variety of local businesses enjoyed the first event which included a presentation by hotel owner Kit Chapman about Taunton Forward, a private sector business group aimed at helping to promote the county town's economic growth.

They then heard a short talk from partner Richard Haste about AmicusLaw's recent recruits, including specialist divorce lawyer Jayne Turner and property lawyers Sarah Williams and Richard Glanville.
