Simon Brazier reports on new rules governing the use of cookies.

Although ‘the paperless office’ is still a way off, we are all now processing and storing more digital material than ever. One consequence of this shift to digital-only working is that of data protection.

The recent decision in Tiffin v Lester Aldridge is a reminder of the importance of a well-drafted LLP agreement that clearly sets out the duties, responsibilities and employment status of members.

Now and again a buyer will acquire land or property by buying the shares of the company that owns it, rather than buying the land itself - in a recent case, an agent lost out on commission of around £2 million after such a transaction took place. 

Businesses should be on the alert for the latest wheeze – cold calls offering so-called ‘expertise’ with a new EU ‘cookies’ law.
