News / Which type of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) is best for you and your business?
Due to increasing delays in Court Proceedings exacerbated by the pandemic, Alternative Dispute Resolution (known as “ADR”) is becoming more important than ever for businesses and individuals alike to resolve disputes. Whilst some cases may require Court intervention to resolve a dispute, early involvement and use of the correct means of ADR can facilitate parties in setting aside their differences and in some cases enable them to reach an early resolution.
Insights / Virtual witnessing of Wills: can the Wills Act 1837 advance in line with modern technology?
The temporary amendments to the Wills Act provide a shift in the meaning of the word “presence” when witnessing a Will. Until now, the physical presence of a witness has been deemed essential. The amendments allow for witnesses to be “present” via video, therefore avoiding the requirement for people to physically meet.
News / Steps to minimise your estate being the subject of a dispute
Covid-19 has forced us all to consider scenarios that were previously unthinkable. As we are having to spend an extended period of time in isolation, in accordance with Government guidance, we have the time to start considering the matters which we often avoid talking about and dealing with, particularly lifetime and estate planning.
News / What happens if you can’t perform your contract as a result of Covid-19; Force majeure and doctrine of frustration in the context of Covid-19
Whilst the health and wellbeing of society as a whole is at the forefront of everyone’s minds, business owners are likely to have additional concerns in circumstances where it is difficult, or in some cases impossible, to perform contracts entered into prior to the Covid-19 pandemic. Those businesses who are unable to perform their obligations under the contract, will need to review the terms of the contract itself to see if they are able to avoid or mitigate a liability which could otherwise amount to a breach of contract.
News / The Effect of Covid-19 to Dispute Resolution
As I continue to follow updates, news broadcasts, and press conferences whilst working from home, it strikes me how difficult it is to absorb all of the new, and ever changing information being provided to us. These changes are having a huge impact on society as a whole and we have to adjust.
