Welcome to our June Ewire

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

Our Ewires will be sent to you regularly to keep you in touch with the latest legal news.

We hope you will find these bulletins interesting.

We also bring you coverage from the Orlando International Trademark Association 2016 Conference, the International Practice Group’s own Thameside event and the equally successful St John’s Wood Pageant charity event at which we helped towards raising a total of approximately £30,000.

Our Client Showcase ‘Catch a falling star’ takes an unflinching look at the difficulties facing professional athletes when their careers end – and reports how a newly-established organization, whose partners we are proud to be, can offer them help and hope.

In this edition, we provide responsive advice on Brexit’s potential impact on Intellectual Property law, then consider a serious mother-in-law scenario, in which her surviving son-in-law won the right to challenge her will through probate.

We also examine the obstacles that representing clients can put in the way of a solicitor’s primary duty not to mislead the court before taking a detailed look at potential changes to barrister training.

Partners’ Message

The EU Referendum result - what it might mean for you

As you will all be well aware, the United Kingdom voted in the recent referendum to leave the European Union.


UK and EU Trade Marks – A Six Point Brexit Strategy

Business as usual: There is no need to take any immediate action. Nothing will change for at least two years. The UK will remain a member of the EU for at least two years and all EU Trade Mark rights and EU Design rights are unaffected by the Brexit vote. But it is important to plan ahead.


Mother-in-law’s will successfully challenged by surviving son-in-law

Following the recent case of Randall v Randall, the Court of Appeal granted a divorced husband permission to challenge the validity of his former mother-in-law’s will, which left him nothing from her estate. Trainee solicitor Maha Sahota explains the background and the ramifications.


The Intellectual Property world gathers in Orlando

Silverman Sherliker flew three top delegates to the annual conference of the International Trademark Association (INTA), which was held in Orlando, Florida, from 20 to 25 May.


The Brillante Virtuoso: keeping on an even keel in court

A warning that a solicitor’s overriding obligation to protect the proper administration of justice and not to mislead the court can easily result in a conflict of interest with their clients, as Jonathan Silverman explains in his review of a complex marine insurance case. Additional research and material has been provided by paralegal Sarah Strasberg.


Silverman Sherliker hits the headlines – again!

Silverman Sherliker’s very own Nicholas Lakeland made his second TV appearance this year following his February guest spot, on which he discussed the issues faced by Junior Doctors and their proposals to tackle them on BBC News.


Employment corner: bars and strikes
