Welcome to our September 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 weigh up the various options available for businesses when their products are faulty and take a look at the legal developments concerning squatting in residential buildings, as well as with regards to extensions to such properties.

We also examine the impact of changes to family law and invite you to a seminar covering transparency within employee benefits and pensions.

Finally, we consider the trends in China that businesses should be aware of, congratulate the new Head of our Property Department and provide a showcase on how businesses can use feng shui to achieve greater success.

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.
