The search is on to find some of the North of England’s most inspiring workspaces, as Inspired Spaces North launches for the second year.
 
Prolific North’s Inspired Spaces North launched for the first time in 2016 and was a great success in the digital and creative community, showcasing the fantastic work spaces from around the North. Now it’s back for 2017.
 

Brabners is proud to announce its partnership with Launch, a new tech co-working space at The Landing in MediaCityUK. Launch is a new space which has opened within The Landing and is aimed at supporting start-up and scale-up businesses in the North West, with a particular focus on VR, AR and IoT businesses.

As a professional mentor at Launch, Brabners will be running workshops, masterclasses and having one-on-one chats with the tenants with a view to guiding them through their growth from small, ambitious companies into large, successful businesses.

We’re very excited to reveal our brand new partnership with Freshwalks City at MediaCity UK.

For those of you who don’t know, Freshwalks is the walking event that has been successfully connecting and revitalising business people through challenging Peak District hikes for the past couple of years. Its rising popularity – with over 500 registered walkers – led to the creation of a sister event earlier this year.

This year Brabners have been pleased to support the launch of Prolific North’s Inspired Spaces North 2016 which celebrates the most innovative workspaces in the creative and digital sector in the North.

Leading North West law firm Brabners Chaffe Street has advised the shareholders of Mobcast, the award-winning digital book platform provider, on its £4.5m sale to Tesco announced today.

 

Mobcast provides a digital book retail platform with a catalogue of more than 130,000 of the UK’s most popular titles which can be bought and read on smartphones, tablets and e-readers.  Mobcast offers a cloud-based service that lets customers build up an eBook library collection without being locked-in to one single device.

 

Posting a message on social network site Twitter is free and can reach a wide audience in seconds but could it result in you paying over £1m and being engaged in a lengthy legal dispute?

In what is thought to be the first Twitter libel case in England, Chris Cairns, the former New Zealand cricket captain, was awarded damages by the High Court this week after an allegation was made on Twitter that he was involved in match fixing.
