Supervising Solicitors >

Litigators will know that the court will not permit the carrying out of a search order in civil proceedings without a supervising solicitor having been appointed. We believe there are few, if any, other firms that can match our experience in acting as supervising solicitors.

New Requirements for Businesses Contracting with Consumers >

Attention B2C traders, from 13 June 2014 onwards the new Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations (“Consumer Contract Regulations”) will apply to all new contracts entered into on or after this date. The Consumer Contract Regulations implement the 2011 EU Consumer Rights Directive, and in so doing will replace the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000, as well as the 2008 regulations concerning off-premises, or doorstep selling.

Whilst the Consumer Contract Regulations for the most part contain requirements that traders will already be familiar with, there are also important new additional requirements. Traders entering into contracts with consumers, be they on-premises, off-premises or at a distance, will need to reflect these new requirements in their contractual terms and conditions and consider how these might affect their dealings with consumers going forward.
