We are pleased to announce that Stephen Hodgson has been appointed as CEO. Stephen takes over from Charles Maher who held the position for over 5 years. Stephen has been Head of Commercial Property at the firm for 10 years since joining Marsden Rawsthorn in 1999.
A number of clients have contacted us with concerns that we are connected with recently closed firm Dixon, Raven and Marsden of Leyland and Southport. We can confirm that we have no connections with this firm.
From 1st October 2009, the limit on a weeks pay for the purposes of calculating statutory redundancy payments will increase from £350 to £380. The maximum statutory redundancy payment that an employee may be entitled to receive will therefore rise from £10,500 to £11,400. An employee who is dismissed by reason of redundancy on or after 1st October will be entitled to the higher amount.
