Local Lawyers Apply Grey Matter to Grey Matters
Local Solicitors, Shore Stewart, have joined with other professionals across Yorkshire to provide a NEW service specifically targeted at the issues that affect older clients and their businesses.
The Elderflower service launched in June 2011 and brings together respected and regulated professional firms including solicitors, financial advisers and accountants. They are working together to provide top quality legal, financial and business advice for those planning for retirement or who are retired.
Shore Stewart Director, Michelle Shore explains: “Elderflower recognises that there are issues that are unique to older people and brings together practical bespoke solutions to those issues. Whether it is questions about employment, retirement or age discrimination, or contact with grandchildren, nursing home fees or succession planning, Elderflower has a dedicated team of experts on hand to find a practical solution.”
As an expert employment lawyer, Michelle brings years of experience to this complicated and fast-changing area of the law.
Michelle adds “With the abolition of the Default Retirement Age of 65, many employers and employees are struggling to understand the complex legislation that has come into force.”
In the current challenging economic climate, research indicates that those over 50s are at particular risk of both redundancy and becoming long term unemployed. People are being pushed towards early retirement, often against their will, with inadequate provisions.
