Welcome to our August Ewire

We like to keep you up to date with ideas and information that will help you gain maximum advantage from working with us.

Our Ewires will be sent to you regularly to keep you in touch with the latest legal news.

We hope you will find these bulletins interesting and informative.

The Ewire closes on a cosmopolitan note: we report on our own Stala Charalambous’ Italian wine-tasting trip (via an exclusive central London restaurant), and our guest article addresses Brexit’s potential impact on Jersey, which is within the EU for trading purposes, but outside it in all other respects.

If you would like further information on any of the issues reported in this Ewire, 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 edition, we examine the complications of taxation of employment dispute settlements and consider changes that may be needed to keep the law up to speed with the driverless cars set to be on the road by 2020.


We highlight the differences between the purchases of Swedish and English residential properties, and offer useful information for commercial landlords taking new tenants while having to deal with remedial works left by the previous occupiers.
 

Robotic cars can the law catch up?

Development in robotics, such as self-driving cars, artificial intelligence, machine learning and human-enhancement devices, are progressing at breakneck speed and are fast becoming realities.

 

Dilapidations: Balancing the new tenant’s requirements with the previous tenant’s repairing obligations

Put in very basic terms, ‘dilapidations’ are the repairing covenants which one party (generally the tenant) enters into during a commercial lease.

 

Taxing Settlement Agreements a case study

The recent case of Moorthy v Revenue and Customs [2016] IRLR 218 explores the issue of taxation in employment cases, specifically the taxation applied to awards and settlement agreements.

 

Purchasing a property: contrasting systems in England and Sweden

The property purchase procedure in England has often been criticised because the transaction does not become legally binding until the exchange of contracts.

 

Sour grapes of the best kind.... out & about with Stala Charalambous

Our Head of Family Law, Stala Charalambous, was fortunate enough to attend a reception hosted by Coram Chambers at exclusive central London venue, Franco’s, on 21 July.

General Manager Jason Phillips took guests on a Tour of Italy – a virtual trip around the country’s wine-producing regions, whose reds, whites and rosés were available for tasting throughout the evening, with a selection of delicious canapés.

 

Jersey’s post-Brexit position with the EU

Our guest contributor, Volaw Group’s Managing Director, Robert Christensen, provides an update on how the UK’s Brexit decision might affect Jersey.
