Family firms will be in focus at a series of events organised by a regional law firm.

East Anglian solicitors Birketts will be holding Family Business Day in association with Family Business United (FBU) on Wednesday, January 31.

The day will see visits to firms across East Anglia, where businesses will discuss issues unique to those run by generation after generation.

It will start with breakfast at one of the oldest family firms in Norfolk, where Michelle Jarrold will speak about the history of Jarrold and Sons at Benjis Restaurant at the group’s flagship Norwich store from 7.45am.

In the evening, there is a chance to meet other family businesses and advisors at a dinner at Ravenwood Hall in Bury St Edmunds.
