Latest Briefings

Reform of the Community Infrastructure Levy

By Katherine Evans In March we reported on the government’s consultation on the reform of the current system of developer contributions. The government’s response to the consultation, released at the end of October, confirms that change is on the horizon. The key themes of the consultation were centred around a desire to make the system simpler and more […]

Court of Appeal rules on ATM rates

By Şenay Nihat Since 2013, retailers have had to pay non-domestic rates (‘Business Rates’) for automated teller machines (ATMs) built into the front of stores, rather than treating the ATMs as part of the store’s overall rating for valuation purposes. The Business Rates bill for the ATM was backdated to 2010, hitting retailers with significant […]

Proposed ban on flammable cladding – An update

By Adrian Mansbridge Following Dame Hackitt’s Review of the Building Regulations and Fire Safety the government announced that it would consult on banning flammable cladding. The consultation closed on 14 August 2018 and the housing secretary announced at the Conservative Party Conference that the ban would be brought forward.

Scotland

Two firms stand out in the Scottish peer group this year, but for very different reasons. Dundas & Wilson posted robust turnover growth but a static average profit per equity partner (PEP), while Brodies had an exceptional year, with revenue rising by an enviable 43 per cent coupled with a decent 13 per cent hike […]

Magic circle left wanting in female partnership stakes

The magic circle is falling short in the diversity stakes when it comes to female partners, with all four seeing less than 10 per cent of their equity falling into female hands. As part of its UK 200 Annual Report, The Lawyer asked firms how many of their partners and equity partners were female. The […]

Nigel, Keith and the Arsenal oligarch

It’s back to school this week, and it’s good to see libel kings Schillings starting the new term with a bang. For shockingly, Keith Schilling has been tempted out of his Soho bunker. The entire firm has decamped from its old offices (just a stone’s throw away from the Groucho Club, darlings) to a swanky […]

EPP is the new PEP

The true picture of profitability among the UK’s top firms is on display today (3 September). Forget PEP. Loathe it (A&O’s Guy Beringer) or love it (anyone at Slaughters), it has become something of a problematic benchmark. Actually, strike that ‘anyone at Slaughters’ comment. As we reported last month, and reiterate today, the firm’s senior […]
