- Price Transparency Era - Toward the end of 2018 The Solicitors Regulation Authority introduced new rules to ensure clients have the best possible information on solicitor’s fees at the outset. Law firms are now required to publish price and service information on their website for the following areas of law; residential conveyancing, probate and employment tribunal claims to name a few. The aim is to provide greater transparency to clients enabling them to make informed decisions about their legal matter.
- Grants of Representation - A Grant of Representation is the document required to confirm your authority to deal with the estate of an individual who has died. A Grant of Representation can be necessary whether or not the deceased left a Will.
TUPE 2006 Regulations
The Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006 (“TUPE 2006”) applies wherever there is a “relevant transfer”.
This can apply to transfers of business, properties and contracts including outsourcing and the return of contracts in house.
The law in this area is extremely complex and carries with it various obligations to inform and consult with those potentially affected.
If you are buying or selling a business or commercial property or are looking at contracts to supply services such as cleaning, maintenance, call handling etc then please contact Fiona Hewitt on 01296 318513 for further advice.
