Leathes Prior’s Franchising Team sail Wroxham Broad on the Wherry - White Moth
The firm’s Franchising Team recently enjoyed an evening’s sail on White Moth, a Norfolk Wherry Yacht. Wherries were originally trading vessels which used to sail the Norfolk Broads. Subsequently, some were developed to carry passengers and the Wherry Yachts were built as pleasure yachts early in the last century.
Jonathan Chadd, partner in the Franchising and Intellectual Property Team, advised on the purchase of White Moth by Andrew Scull. Mr Scull generously loans White Moth to the Wherry Yacht Charter Charitable Trust (WYCCT) so that she can be enjoyed by others. At the kind invitation of owner Andrew Scull and under the steady hand of skipper Peter Bower and his dog Sam the Team enjoyed a marvellous sail in perfect weather out from the Trust’s base in Wroxham and on to Wroxham Broad. Leathes Prior is proud to support the restoration and preservation work carried out to White Moth and other Norfolk Wherries. For more information about the WYCCT including the work it carries out and details of the yachts available for private charter, please visit: www.wherryyachtcharter.org
The Franchising team works closely with other departments within the firm to be one of very few firms which is able to offer the full complement of legal services to its franchising clients. 9 members of the firm, including members of the employment, commercial property, intellectual property, debt collection and dispute resolution teams accompanied the Franchising team on the trip. Jonathan Chadd thanked colleagues for their continual support of the Franchising team:
“The Franchise Team just wanted to thank all of you for your assistance to us and hope you enjoyed it.” Vicki Mitman, added: “It is great to have the assistance of other specialist teams within the firm as they ensure we are able to offer a comprehensive and competitive service.“
