Welcome to our December 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 examine how new rules requiring shareholder approval for executives’ pay could be ineffective, while we take a closer look at a new scheme that will help rights owners put a stop to counterfeits across the EU.

We also consider a recent Supreme Court judgement and how it affects the interaction between matrimonial and company law principles, and discuss the mixed messages given out over pensions.

Furthermore we hear from a guest author on Danish tax laws, and we look at our 2013 Photo competition, our recent Chambers UK listing, and other news our charity partner, and the artist which featured in our autumn receptions.

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.
