It is widely recognised there is a great need need for SMEs to have better access to affordable, jargon free legal services. Without access to affordable legal services most businesses are often put off taking the necessary steps that will protect them and their assets now and in the future. It is the frequently avoidable legal mistakes made by small businesses which end up costing them dearly later on.

Recent You Gov research highlighted that SMEs in the UK lose over approximately £13 billion a year as a result of failing to take adequate legal advice and legal steps to protect their assets. These include contracts and agreements, intellectual property, regulations, HR and employment disputes.

You will probably know someone who uses online social networks or even use them yourself. Facebook is one of the many pan-global ways of instantly communicating with all your friends and expressing opinions about anything. It is also alarmingly easy for strangers (in particular, company representatives) to see your comments. That could spell disaster if you’re seen to be venting your frustration over a product/service. There have already been defamation of character UK Law cases for defamatory Facebook comments.

The law on Class A Drugs in the UK is enforced as part of wider legislation under The Misuse of Drugs Act 1971 and the Medicines Act.
This legislation was introduced to prohibit the use of drugs for reasons that were not medically related and it controls not only medicinal drugs which are defined in the Medicines Act but also class a drugs which have no medical use.

As a law which is primarily aimed at the general public rather than medical providers, any drug under this act will be referred to as a controlled drug.

Employment Law

Many businesses require their employees to carry out activities which involve the use of equipment or substances that can be hazardous to health. In these workplaces, employees must be provided with Personal Protective Equipment and there is a set of ppe regulations which govern the scenarios when this equipment should be issued.

PPE regulations was introduced through The Personal Protective Equipment Regulations 1992 and it placed a number of obligations on employers and employees to ensure that they comply with these new regulations.

Part 1 of the Act defines general guidelines which were created by the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs from 2008 can set limitations on any process which creates emissions.

Previously enforcement of emissions was the responsibility of local authorities and the HM Inspectorate of Pollution. From 1996, the Environment Agency took over.

Estate Law

Making a will is one of those things that many of us never give a second thought, but they are so important for a number of reasons. A will is a legal document that outlines your wishes after your death.

These wishes relate to your finances, property, possessions and care of children under the age of 16 years. When you create a will it is a legally binding document that is made in writing, signed by witnesses and completed properly.

Wills that are incorrectly prepared or not signed and witnessed properly may be invalid. This will result in a number of problems when it comes to administering your estate.

Crown Prosecution Service

Up until just after the end of the first quarter of the 19th century if anyone wanted to prosecute a criminal they either had to do it on their own or pay lawyers.

From 1829, with the advent of the various police forces, those forces undertook criminal prosecutions.

In the early 1960s prosecutions were moved into separate departments but still within the police force. In 1985, this was moved completely away from the police and the Crown Prosecution Service was set up as a direct result of the Prosecution of Offences Act 1985. The CPS became operational the following year.

There is a similar organisation in Scotland called the Crown Office and in Northern Ireland, the Public Prosecution Service.

The overall head of the Crown Prosecution Service is the Director of Public Prosecutions who reports to the Attorney General in England and Wales.

Human Rights

The Human Rights Act 1998 was introduced to protect the rights of individuals. This Act states that government organisations, local authorities and the police must treat everyone equally and with dignity, respect and fairness.

In the UK anyone can use the Act regardless of whether they were born here. Children, adults, members of the public and even prisoners can exercise their human rights by applying the terms of the Act.

Inheritance Law

It would be fair to say that the inheritance tax people have to pay is an unpopular tax but it is one that many estates have to pay when someone passes away. The threshold for inheritance tax in the United Kingdom is £325,000 (in 2013/14) and anyone that passes away with an estate that is less than this figure is not eligible for inheritance tax.

However, for those that are eligible for this tax, the tax is payable at a level of 40% for the amount owed above the level or 36% if the estate is eligible for a reduced rate thanks to a charitable donation.

Intellectual Property

Trademark infringement occurs when a business or individual uses the same trademark as another operating in the same industry. If the trademark is likely to cause confusion amongst consumers or the trademark is so similar that they identify the goods or services to be from the same company, the party who has committed the infringement can be prosecuted.

Furthermore, where the trademark has gained recognition such as that of a well-known brand, an offence of trademark infringement may be committed even if the offender uses a mark which doesn’t cause confusion but it has an unfair advantage in relation to the reputation of the registered company. This can often occur when the business who have ‘copied’ the trademark produce inferior or poor quality products or the products are significantly different from those that the registered trademark holder offers.

Marriage Advice

Cohabiting or living with your partner often creates misunderstanding and confusion about legal rights. Couples either believe that they have the same rights as a married couple because of common law or they have little or no rights at all. However, both of these assumptions are incorrect.

As a couple, moving in together is an exciting time and the last thing you want to think about is if something goes wrong. However, it is important to consider the legal implications this may have and what safeguards you can put in place if the partnership ends due to death or separation.
