Welcome to our August Ewire

We like to keep you up to date with ideas and information that will help you gain the maximum advantage from working with us.

Our Ewires will be sent to you regularly to keep you in touch with the latest legal news and we hope you will find these bulletins interesting.

In this edition, we look at the issues surrounding protecting TV formats, while we examine the enforcement of foreign judgments in England and Wales.

We also consider the menace of Japanese Knotweed facing property owners, while we feature a guest article from Day Cooper Day on Small Self Administered Pension Schemes (SSASs).

Furthermore we examine the use and legal scope of zero-hours contracts, while our client showcase this month features the Safe Drive Stay Alive (SDSA) initiative.

We conclude with information about an IP seminar featuring Director of Brands Robert MacGinn.

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