Fletcher Day are proud to be hosting an exhibition of the paintings of Keith Jansz on 16th May 2017 at our office on the 7th Floor.

 “Keith Jansz took up the challenge when he became tetraplegic.  He had lost the use of his hands and legs in a tragic road accident in 1995, and was paralysed from the neck down.  He turned to painting, with the added challenge of painting with his mouth not his hands. To begin with Keith needed help, encouragement and inspiration, and he received these from fellow artists in the Mouth & Foot Painting Artists.  An active sportsman before his accident Keith knew what it was to push himself to his limits and this he now did with his painting, soon holding exhibitions of his work which attracted great interest and admiration. Keith’s work is full of light and colour.  Above all else it is full of joy.” (Professor Ken Howard, OBE, of the RA).

KEEP CALM AND BREXIT!

Jovita Vassallo, Head of Dispute Resolution at Fletcher Day, delivered another successful presentation in March 2017 during an International Business Law Consortium conference in Cyprus. Her subject on this occasion was Brexit.

As Article 50 was about to be triggered, Jovita focused on the positive aspects of Brexit. The group of international lawyers, many of whom were European, found this approach refreshing, and came away feeling more confident about the process than before.

The facts of the case were that a Mrs Melita Jackson had been estranged from her daughter Heather  Ilott since as long ago as 1978 and that rift never healed. Generally speaking Heather never had a great deal of money. She had to claim benefits and had little money to spare.

Mrs Jackson made a Will in which she left everything to various charities. She also wrote a Side Letter  in which she explained her reasons for excluding her daughter Heather altogether.  Melita Jackson subsequently died leaving an estate valued at almost £500,000.

Property transactions – ‘it’s not fair they have taken my deposit. Is there any way I can get it back?’

A recent case reminds us all of the vulnerability of deposits paid in property transactions.  Whilst statute might exceptionally come to the aid of those who cannot complete a contract and lose their deposit – ordinarily loss of a deposit is no more than what you bargained for.

If so be careful to ensure that your terms of engagement are clear from the start.

It has long been established in English law that in order for a binding Contract to arise you need one person to make another person an offer, for that offer to then be accepted and for something of value to change hands between them. Also the people concerned must intend that this should give rise to a legally binding relationship.  The final key element is that the terms between them must be clear and certain.

Time For a No Fault divorce?

Time For a No Fault divorce?

Published: 27 January 2017  |  Category: Fletcher Day News

When it comes to making the difficult decision to separate from your partner most individuals would like the whole process to be as pain free as possible. However, this is not always possible as in England & Wales blame needs to be attributed to one party following a breakdown of a relationship to satisfy grounds of divorce. Blame does not surface when parties have been separated for 2 or 5 years but in practice people do not want to wait 2 years before bringing a formal conclusion to their marriage.

What’s in a Word?

I have always been fascinated by the meaning of words, particularly their meaning in law. One of my great interests in this area are the words ‘Employee’, ’Worker’, ‘and Sub-Contractor’. I have acted in many cases for both sides on the meaning of these very words, including acting in a landmark case back in 2010 to the Court of Appeal on the meaning of ‘Sub-Contractor ’(Tilson -v- Alstrom).

The Rights of Workers in the “Gig” Economy

Published: 12 December 2016  |  Category: Fletcher Day News

There has been much talk and publicity recently about the “Gig” economy which is becoming widely popular. This type of arrangement consists of a working environment where temporary positions are common place and workers are paid for separate pieces of work.  Often companies will contract with independent workers to carry out these short term engagements.
