In March 2015, John O’Halloran FRICS, the former MD of BAA Lynton, took his own life. John’s colleagues and family, deeply shocked by the loss of a respected former colleague and father, decided to set up the inaugural John O’Halloran Symposium 2016 in his honour. The event proved to be extremely successful in raising awareness of the issue of mental health in the property industry.

Boyes Turner, solicitors in the Thames Valley, are hosting a breakfast seminar entitled Boundary disputes - (Not) Getting on with the neighbours on Thursday, 26 January 2017.
