Reading has grown and continues to grow as a great place to live and start and grow a business whether you are coming from abroad or are more local.

My colleague Angela Shields has developed a service called Kickstart which is specifically tailored to the needs of start-ups.

We provide inward and outward support with foreign lawyers in our expanding association of our firms and international trade organisations.

To meet the challenges of work life balance, which this report says are growing, and to attract and retain the best employees, employers must give careful thought to flexible working.
