IP law has two sides to it: contentious and non-contentious IP. It is important ensure your intellectual property is marked as yours as clearly as possible, and that, in case of infringement – such as someone stealing your graphics, ideas, or branding – you are able to respond quickly and make use of all the resources available that the law provides you with.More information
Our client, a non-EEA national, initially obtained a residence card as the spouse of an EEA national. Our client subsequently divorced from his EEA national spouse and obtained a residence card under the Retained Rights route. The client then applied for permanent residence, which was refused and a subsequent appeal was dismissed by First-Tier Tribunal as the Judge wrongly thought the client needed to be a qualified person, not his EEA national spouse during the time their marriage lasted. Permission to appeal on this basis was granted.
We have reviewed the EPC contract and provided a legal opinion on force majeure clauses (re Covid-19) and its implications.
Engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning (EPC) contracts are the most common form of contract used to undertake construction works by the private sector on large-scale and complex infrastructure projects. Under an EPC contract, a contractor is obliged to deliver a complete facility to a developer who needs only turn a key to start operating the facility, hence EPCC contracts are sometimes called turnkey construction contracts.
A statutory demand is a request for the payment of outstanding debt.
If you have an undisputed amount due to you or to your business (e.g. an unpaid invoice) then you can file a form called statutory demand requesting a debtor to settle the debt.
A statutory demand is a kind of a warning from you to a debtor that the failure to repay the debt might result in the start of a procedure in the courts to make the debtor bankrupt. This form is often used as a legal tool to apply pressure on the debtor to ensure that they repay their debt.
In the recent case of Topadar v Secretary of State for the Home Department  EWCA Civ 1525 the Court of Appeal examined two questions:
At what point is an immigration application decided by the Home Office?
Is it procedurally unfair for the Home Office to refuse an application due to the applicant’s sponsor (i.e. their employer) failing to provide additional information (without the applicant ever being made aware of the request)?
The Court of Appeal decided:
Conditions can be attached to a person’s permission to enter or stay, and this includes a condition requiring a person to register with the police when in the UK. In this post, we look at the police registration requirement, how to register with the police, where to register with the police, and the potential consequences of failing to register with the police.
