A roundup of the latest news, legal updates, and industry trends from Arc Legal Group.
Breast Cancer Awareness Month

It’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month and we’ve been sharing with our colleagues the importance of being familiar with the signs and symptoms of breast cancer and encouraging them to follow the breast awareness five-point code:

1.    Know what is normal for you
2.    Know what changes to look and feel for
3.    Look and feel
4.    Report any changes to your GP immediately
