The GDPR has been formally adopted by European Commission.

The European Parliament’s press release states “The regulation will enter into force 20 days after its publication in the EU Official Journal. Its provisions will be directly applicable in all member states two years after this date.” – http://www.europarl.europa.eu/news/en/news-room/20160407IPR21776/Data-protection-reform-Parliament-approves-new-rules-fit-for-the-digital-era

The European Commission’s press release on this is at http://europa.eu/rapid/press-release_STATEMENT-16-1403_en.htm

Are you prepared for the new consumer law?

The new consumer law came into force on 1 October 2015 and already it’s a major talking point. 

We knew it was arriving so, for the past few months, we’ve been busy behind the scenes developing contracts in readiness for the changes. We know how important it is to keep our clients ahead of the game by taking a pro-active approach to any new legislation that may impact on their businesses. If we haven’t been in touch with you about this and you feel that the new consumer law applies to your business, get in touch with us right away.

Business networks and presentations

There are some great business networks in the south-west and we’re hoping to get along to as many of the meetings as we can, either as members or guests, or possibly to give some presentations. 

Our business meeting schedule is taking shape so we hope to see you in the near future for a chat and a coffee.

East Dorset Business Network meets on the second Friday of every month and we’re hoping to be there whenever we can.

Meetdraw is a group of businesses from Bournemouth’s digital community. The group is holding its Meetdraw Christmas Event on 10 December. Not only are we pleased to be sponsoring it, we’re really looking forward to being there.

Do you collaborate with other businesses?

With an increasing number of start-up businesses adopting the freelance or micro-business route, a new book, to be launched shortly, takes a look at the practicalities of collaborative working as a model for growth and success. 

Tracey O’Connell of Lawpoint was invited to contribute to the book, The Collaboration Game, and has written the chapter on contractual arrangements for collaborative freelancing.

Written by David Drysdale with contributions from Tracey O’Connell and Andy Parker, the book is published by the Dorset-based organisation, It’s a freelance thing and was designed by Richard Gregory.

We’ll keep you posted on the launch date and how you can get your copy.

Facemat Fun at @Meetdraw #Meetdraw31

We had lots of fun with facemats recently @Meetdraw #Meetdraw31, an event we have sponsored. The aim of Meetdraw is to support the local (Dorset) creative economy and provide an independent, neutral and open platform for communication and development.

We have also given some prizes (cakes) to our favourite tweets from the evening using the facemats. The winners are: The Nerd Pirates (@NerdPirates) and Fleurie (Like Marie) from Thinking Juice (@ThinkingJuice). We really hope you enjoy the prizes!

Lawpoint has a new look and a new home

Anyone who paid a visit to our website in the past will have noticed all the changes we’ve made. In fact, we’ve stripped out the old site completely and replaced it with this one. 

We think you’ll find the changes to your liking. There’s more information to help you and there’s even more on the way so, if you haven’t fully explored the site and its content, now is the time to do it.

New logo

Have you noticed that we’ve also changed our logo? It’s still the same name and it still stands for great service but we’ve updated the design and given it more impact. We hope you like it.

New home

All the changes we’ve made coincided with the recent move to Lawpoint’s new office in Bournemouth’s Hinton Road where we’re settling down nicely.
