In the day-to-day running of a company, businesses are often overseen by individuals who are not legal directors registered at Companies House. This has important consequences, as such individuals may be exposing themselves to personal liability (both civil and criminal) for their acts or omissions in directing the company. 

Businesses should prepare themselves for yet more reform of consumer law in the UK, as the Consumer Rights Bill is currently being considered by Parliament. It is likely that some of the provisions of the Regulations will be repealed once the Bill is implemented.

In recent years Parliament and the tribunals have developed a series of ‘bear traps’ which can produce unforeseen liabilities for the unwary employer. Two recent tribunal decisions provide a good illustration of this explains partner Matthew Clayton in our employment team.

We have once again retained our strong ranking across the South West region in the Legal 500 2014 directory, which published its results yesterday.

We were delighted to have been chosen as finalists in this year’s inaugural Local Business Charity Awards.
