Welcome to our July 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 provide good news for brand owners targeting the Indian market, as well as reviewing the risks associated with personal guarantees.

We then examine the latest Employment Tribunal statistics, directors’ additional duties under AIM and the benefits of putting a Probate Plan in place. We also consider promotions for two of the Partners at Silverman Sherliker and the onus on trustees to watch out for pension scams.

Finally, we take a look at the benefits of doing business in Denmark, before concluding with a review of how to identify investment risk.

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.

In this article, Trainee Solicitors Ben Thorogood and Alban Radivojevic highlight some important considerations for individuals who are currently, or are planning to become, directors of public companies on AIM.

Planning Ahead: Pre-Paid Probate

We all know how important it is to plan for the future, and especially when it comes to your estate and beneficiaries upon your death. 

One way in which you can make matters easier for your loved ones is to arrange a Probate Plan in advance. This allows you to pay a fixed probate fee in advance, which allows the costs to be fixed and used to offset your estate’s tax liability, thus benefiting your heirs.
