Lord chancellor Liz Truss (second right in picture) had the chance to get a briefing on frontline legal services when she visited longestablished Lincolnshire and East Midlands firm Chattertons earlier this month.

The business and private client firm, established in 1856, welcomed Truss along with her parliamentary private secretary, local MP and former solicitor Robert Jenrick (left). Also pictured are Edward Conway, Chattertons chief executive (centre), Richard Ludlow, head of wealth management, and Dr Caroline Johnson, Conservative candidate in next week’s Sleaford and North Hykeham byelection.
