SOLICITORS in Fareham lobbied MP Mark Hoban on issues affecting their clients and their business.
The Fareham MP visited solicitors and staff at Graeme Quar & Co at their head office at Furzehall Farm off Wickham Road.
Managing director Graeme Quar said they were pleased to have the opportunity to bring up some of the issues that were affecting some of their clients with their MP.
‘Mark listened carefully to what we had to say and also provided an update to us on some of the issues that are specific to Fareham and business in the area,’ he said.
‘It was very good of Mark to take the time to come and visit us.
‘We are in his constituency and we have clients that are also his constituents so we were able to give him an insight into some of the challenges that we and they are facing.’
Among the issues raised with the MP were problems with bureaucracy and red tape, the recession, and what that had meant for the local economy and the length of time for cases to be heard in court.
Mr Hoban said: ‘Graeme and the whole team have shown that even during a recession there are opportunities for businesses.
‘I was impressed at the work they do to support business people through often difficult legal issues and ensure they can get on with running their businesses.’
