THE county is returning to a new normal - and we want to support businesses as they re-open and welcome back customers.

One way we are doing our bit is to publish a FREE weekly business directory, listing business across the county who are open and seeking local support.

So whatever it is you need, from hairdressing to plumbing, photography to legal advice, check out our list below and do your bit to support Somerset.

And if you own a business and would like to be included, simply complete the form at www.countygazette.co.uk/supportingsomerset

FORTITUDE CHAMBERS

We are forward thinking, vibrant and commercially aware legal professionals with a dedicated client focus. Chambers is proactive whilst embracing traditional values and ethos.

Our objective is to be barristers of choice for clients who value professionalism and commitment.

Litigation is often prohibitively expensive. Fortitude Chambers was, in large measure, created by the reflection of the times in which we live; we seek to distinguish ourselves in a positive sense by a multidisciplinary approach to the resolution of judicial problems.

Our objective is to so do by incorporating within a legal structure barristers traditionally trained in non-legal professions such as: business and commerce, communication, financial, government, medical and town & country planning.

This multidisciplinary approach permits us to provide efficient and economically practical solutions to problems encountered by clients with civil and criminal issues - including, by way of example, the adoption of early settlement by alternative dispute resolution and negotiation.
