Congratulations to Alissa Lang, Jasmine Doust and Edward Richings for their fourth-place finish in the Bail for Immigration Detainees Pub Quiz in London. The event raised money to help asylum seekers and migrants fight for their release on bail.

Lee Silk from our Dispute Resolution team recently settled a highly contentious construction dispute involving unique land. The dispute involved arguments about an application for payment, the validity of pay less notice and the true value of the works. Subsequent to the Court of Appeal decision in S&T (UK) Ltd v Grove Developments Ltd, employers can start an adjudication concerning the correct value of the sums due and are not deemed to have agreed the valuation because of its failure to serve a payment or pay less notice. A favourable settlement was agreed prior to proceedings being issued.



 

Jessica Bass from our Dispute Resolution team recently concluded the settlement of a probate dispute which involved the allegation of fraudulent calumny as a cause of action. The case settled at mediation after court proceedings has been issued by our High Wycombe office.
Congratulations to Andrew Piggin who was welcomed to the roll of solicitors on Friday. Andrew will be working as a solicitor from our High Wycombe office specialising in residential conveyancing and property law disputes.

Early Conciliation is a service offered by ACAS to allow potential claimants and respondents in employment disputes to try to settle their dispute before employment tribunal proceedings are issued. A potential claimant must lodge a form (an “Early Conciliation Notification” form) with ACAS to start the process. Except in very limited circumstances, a claimant cannot commence Tribunal proceedings without doing this.
 
Lauren McLaughlin, a member of our Employment Team, has taken part in the testing of ACAS’s new and updated Early Conciliation Notification form, which is due to be released later in Spring 2019. The testing included considering all aspects of the new form, the procedure, any perceived issues and its overall ease of use.  The idea is to help make the Early Conciliation process easier for claimants and their representatives. The testing will soon finish, and we look forward to seeing the updated form going live.
 
If you are considering commencing proceedings or are in the process of Early Conciliation and would like advice and assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact our Employment Team
 

We welcome Jasmine Doust later this month who joins us having previously set up and assisted with the running of an immigration law centre in Samos, Greece. 

We also say goodbye to Emily Hook who leaves us after nearly 6 years with the firm.

Best wishes to all for 2019. 

Our Dispute Resolution team recently resolved a revenge porn case where a person had been threatened with having private sensitive photographs distributed to her employer and the wider public. A letter of claim threatening injunction proceedings was sent within hours of our instruction in order to safeguard our client's interests and quickly resulted in a resolution being achieved which fully protected our client's privacy.

Our Dispute Resolution department recently resolved a defamation and harassment claim against an individual who had been threatening to publish false and seriously harmful information about our client and had been on a campaign of harassment. 
We are extremely pleased to welcome immigration specialists Rachel Knight and Amrin Shabir to the team. Rachel Knight previously ran the immigration law firm Knight & Jones in High Wycombe for 4 years before that law firm joined us on 1 November 2018.
