Blog: Application for an inquest into Alfie Evans’ death is without merit

By Bridget Dolan QC R (Allman) v HM Senior Coroner for Liverpool and Wirral The short and desperately tragic life of Alfie Evans, and his parents’ heart-rending fight to have him transferred to Rome for continuation of his life sustaining treatment, has recently been fully played out in the public arena. The public hearings in the […]

Implications of a ‘no Brexit deal’ on business structuring, accounting and audit

By Alison Johnson As 29 March 2019 draws ever closer and Brexit withdrawal negotiations continue, the UK government has started to release a series of technical notices outlining the implications of a “no Brexit deal” on certain key topics and industries.

Mortgage portfolio transfers – How a stitch in time saves nine

Law Soc jumps gun on legal aid rates

THE LAW Society has earned itself a rebuke for “pre-empting” by several days the Lord Chancellor’s announcement of new legal aid rates for law firms. Officials at the Lord Chancellor’s Department were caught off guard last week when the Law Society announced the results of the latest legal aid pay negotiations several days early. Lord […]

Your suggestion that there should be two separate bodies dealing with the regulatory and trade union aspects of the profession in last week’s editorial ‘Time for a solution’ is not new.
