Welcome to our January Ewire

At Silverman Sherliker we like to keep you up to date with ideas and information of interest to our clients and general network.
Our Ewires will be sent to you regularly to keep you in touch with the latest legal news.

And with Brexit right ever in the news, we reflect on the first-ever ‘reverse cross-border merger’, completed by Liza Zucconi, Head of Silverman Sherliker’s Italian Desk.

Finally, we warn business owners to be on the lookout for unsolicited ‘trade mark registration’ fraudsters. If in doubt, contact Silverman Sherliker.

If you would like further information on any of the issues reported in this Ewire, please contact us.

In this edition: Avoiding litigation is often easier said than done. We sit down with John Abbott, Head of Dispute Resolution and member of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators, and discuss how SMEs can avoid costly court costs through prudent planning and unquestionable contracts.

Elsewhere: Our Residential Property Department reports on the pitfalls of letting a leasehold property on Airbnb - a must-read for prospective landlords.

Silverman Sherliker completes the first ‘Brexit’ merger

EU ‘Reverse Cross-Border merger’ expected to be the first of many

For the first time, a UK company has been ‘absorbed’ by a European-based subsidiary in a legal first that is set to be copied by companies with pan-European corporate structures responding to the UK’s vote to leave the EU.


Silverman Sherliker’s senior litigator awarded chartered status - John Abbott, ACIArb

Silverman Sherliker is delighted to announce that John Abbott, Head of Dispute Resolution, has been awarded associate membership of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArb, www.iarb.org).


How to avoid Arbitration or Litigation

The obvious answer to the question; “how do I avoid litigation or arbitration?” is never to have a dispute or argument. But as every business person will confirm, things go wrong in business and it is virtually impossible to run a business without, at some time, running into a problem with a supplier, debtor carrier or contractor. John Abbott, Silverman Sherliker’s Head of Dispute Resolution, and an Associate of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators, explains why early planning is important in avoiding the courts and tribunals.


Property Owners Beware: The Pitfalls of Airbnb

As a property owner it may be tempting to earn some extra money by renting out your property on a short-term let. Following recent case law, however, it may cause you a lot of trouble by doing so. Anna Svensson and Lina Isaac, of Silverman Sherliker’s Residential Property department, explain.


Brand Owners: Don’t Be Fooled!

Unscrupulous and unregulated businesses are continuing to plague brand owners with misleading requests for payment, in return for worthless trade mark ‘registrations’.
