Welcome to our October Ewire

We like to keep you up to date with ideas and information that will help you gain the maximum advantage from working with us.

Our Ewires will be sent to you regularly to keep you in touch with the latest legal news and we hope you will find these bulletins interesting.

In this edition, we consider how small start-ups can achieve the funding they need and take a look at what constitutes an unlawful alteration to a rented property, as well as appropriate action if this occurs.

We also examine the benefits for businesses of harmonised our charges for registering designs across the European Union and Cadbury’s victory in its tasty battle over the colour purple.

Finally, we reflect on another hot topic in the world of pensions and the issues that separating parents need to take into account when it comes to putting their children first, before concluding with a look at why individuals should consider New Zealand for investments, asset protection and immigration.

If you would like further information on any of the issues reported here, please contact us.

We operate a responsible email policy at Silverman Sherliker LLP Solicitors, so if you do not wish to receive further copies of our Ewire, please click here to unsubscribe.

The Colour Worth Fighting For

After a four year battle, once again, France and the United Kingdom have added another chapter to the pages of history.
