Welcome to Business Growth Week

The last year has been characterised by uncertainty. But it’s also given businesses opportunities to build resilience. This week, we’re focusing on business growth matters to help your business thrive in 2021.


The UK’s road out of the COVID-19 pandemic isn’t clear yet, but that doesn’t have to stop you from planning for the future. This Thursday, we’ll be hosting our next Business Health Matters interactive webinar, to explore business growth opportunities in 2021.

Join us on Zoom this Thursday 4 February between 16:00 and 17:00. Our legal team will be sharing practical advice on navigating the months ahead, and keeping your business thriving in a post-COVID world. Secure your spot here.

In the run up, you can also follow our blog for the week. We’ll be unpicking key business growth issues every day, with a focus on building resilience for the future.

Here are some of the topics to look forward to:

Business Interruption Insurance

After much anticipation, the Supreme Court made its ruling on whether Business Interruption Insurance policies should pay out for Coronavirus-related losses. For thousands of businesses, the ruling is light at the end of a tunnel – but it is still a little dim. The 112-page document is complex, so our experts are here to help you make sense of it.

During the webinar, Caroline Watson will pull out key insights from the ruling, to bring clarity to business owners on what it means for them. We’ll also be sharing an easy-to-follow summary of the ruling right here, to help you make sense of it all.

Tax matters

Tax is always a key part of business growth. As we move into a post-Brexit and post-COVID world, Mike Westbrook will be looking at the opportunities that businesses can grasp now and in the near future to become more tax efficient.

Employment law – what’s on the horizon?

It’s fair to say that 2020 was an eventful and challenging year for employers. But what opportunities lie in wait in 2021?

Carey Willis Fleming will assess the impact of Brexit on UK employers and employees, discuss the future of remote and flexible working, and consider how businesses have and will continue to adapt to meet the challenges presented by recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic.
