What the Financial Collateral Act in Serbia brings to the table

The Serbian Parliament adopted the Financial Collateral Act (“FCA“) on 8 June 2018 (published in the Official Gazette of the Republic of Serbia, no. 44/2018). The FCA bill was proposed by the Serbian Central Bank (National Bank of Serbia, “NBS“) on 22 May 2018 and the FCA will apply as of 1 January 2019.

Location, location, location: the dangers of tracking whereabouts on social media

Snapchat’s map feature has been called “creepy” and “dangerous” by the media since its inception last year. The feature enables users to track their friends’ locations at any time, across the globe.

Sayer uncovers Law Soc money worries

ROBERT Sayer, the Law Society’s deputy treasurer, has sent a letter to council members identifying a series of financial problems which he believes the Law Society must tackle. In the letter, Sayer, who helped expose the massive overspend on the Law Society’s Regis computer project, said there were reports that the refurbishment of Chancery Lane, […]

Bogan unveils property centre share plan

More than 12,000 lawyers around England and Wales are to be asked to buy shares to fund the establishment of a Solicitors Property Centre likely to be located in Surrey. The 12,700 solicitors who supported John Edge’s campaign on conveyancing fees a year ago will be sent a business plan drawn up by Law Society […]

Sayer dream team

The Law Society election saga has taken a rather bizarre twist. Phillip Sycamore and Michael Mathews have invited Robert Sayer to join them on their slate. It is a breathtakingly audacious move and, indeed, a clever one. But what of Tony Girling, who is currently off on vacation? It seems the ides of March are […]
