    First of all, consider your family relationship. It is going to change when you sue a stepmother, a brother, a mother, a dad, a sister or another relative. Two, try to salvage any relationship that you have with these people because once you initiate this estate lawsuit, it’s probably going to be changed forever. Three, seek, if you can, the intervention of some third party; a family member, clergy or a mediator to try to resolve the dispute that you’re engaged in. Four, if all that fails and you’re going to initiate estate litigation, get a tough trial attorney who limits his or her practice to litigation involving Wills, Trusts and estates or guardianships and not someone who just prepares Wills or Trusts. There’s a lot of probate lawyers or Will and Trust lawyers who do a very good job ...

Paul Brampton, partner and construction and engineering solicitor at IBB Solicitors, discusses construction and engineering dispute resolution. For more information on construction law matters visit: http://www.ibblaw.co.uk/service/construction-and-engineering Transcript: Q. Should a client engage a specialist construction and engineering lawyer to resolve construction and engineering disputes? A. Our advice is that clients should not only use a specialist construction and engineering lawyer to help them resolve disputes, but a specialist should be engaged at an early stage to help them to avoid disputes. i. A specialist will be familiar with the numerous forms of construction contract deployed in the construction and engineering industries, and the interplay between the various contracts on any given project; ii. They will be familiar with the complexities of the construction and engineering processes and the types of document generated by building projects; iii. They will also be familiar with the special rules that apply to construction and engineering disputes, and the different types of dispute resolution methods available; iv. They will be able to identify the types of expert to engage and when to bring them on board; and v. More likely than not, they will have seen similar disputes in the past; or they will have the specialist toolbox to come up with legal solutions to novel problems. On occasion we find ourselves acting opposite general litigators. They may be fantastic lawyers but due to a lack of practical experience they will often struggle to get to grips with construction contracts and the methods commonly deployed to resolve construction and engineering disputes. Q. What is the client's role in resolving construction and engineering disputes? A. The client's role is really of paramount importance. For the best possible outcome there needs to be: i. Trust between the client and the lawyer; and ii. Both the client and the lawyer need to foster a collaborative relationship Before the matter even comes to litigation factors such as: i. The care taken by the client in operating its contracts; and ii. The quality of record keeping by the client This can be the difference between a good outcome and an unsatisfactory outcome. Q. Is construction and engineering litigation expensive? A. Construction and engineering litigation tends to be one of the more expensive types of litigation. i. Construction and engineering projects are complex undertakings involving a lot of different people over a lengthy period of time ii. The amount of documentation generated by a construction project can be vast iii. There are often multiple parties involved, with competing agendas iv. The issues in dispute can be highly technical, requiring input from a number of different experts in order to resolve them In addition, clients should never underestimate the administrative burden that a major piece of litigation can place on their business. A number of people within the client organisation will need to play an active role throughout the litigation process. Q. Are there ways to avoid construction and engineering disputes? A. One of the best methods for avoiding disputes is by investing in good project management. Good project management can take many forms but it will invariably mean: i. Properly managing the project risk through prudent contract procurement at the outset; ii. Employing the right people to manage the project. These people will be organised, good at record keeping, and will be good communicators; iii. Acting swiftly if problems occur. In our experience those clients who come to us early with their potential disputes, can expect a much higher probability of identifying a satisfactory and cost effective solution; iv. And if they follow our advice they will usually be better prepared if a full-blown dispute becomes unavoidable.

VLF business attorneys explain how the litigation process works in the state of Texas and provide helpful tips to minimize your costs. Joseph: Today we’re going to be discussing the litigation process. And our focus is two-fold, first to educate you on the process itself and second, give you helpful tips that will minimize your cost during the litigation process. What’s the first step in litigation? David: Joseph, prior to filing the lawsuit, we’ll conduct a pre-investigation. That’s where we’ll go out and we’ll interview potential parties and witnesses. We’ll gather relevant documents and we’ll explore potential claims and defenses for our clients. Joseph: Once you’ve completed that pre-suit investigation, what’s the next step? David: The next step, Joseph, is actually the lawsuit. In Texas, we call that a petition. On the other side, if a lawsuit has already been filed against our clients, we’ll file what’s known as an “answer”. Joseph: Once you got either the answer or the petition on file, what’s going to be the next step? David: The next step is the fact find view stage. We call that the discovery stage here in Texas and that’s where we’ll produce documents that are relevant to our claims and defences to the other side. And the other side will do the exact same thing. Again, the purpose of discovery is to get all the evidence that we intend to rely on in support of our claims or defences, get that open so that the case can be decided on the merits. Joseph: After we’ve conducted what’s called “written discovery”, exchange documents and writings, the parties will have the opportunity to take what we call depositions. Now, a deposition is a chance to interview a witness under oath in front of court reporter. Testimonies solicited at a deposition is just as good as testimony presented in a trial, in front of a judge or a jury. David: So, Joseph, the discovery stage has been completed. What can our clients expect prior to trial? Joseph: Once you’ve completed written discovery and deposition, each party has the chance to file what’s called a dispositive motion or a motion for summary judgement. That’s a chance for the parties to apply the facts they’ve gathered to the law and ask the judge to make a ruling in their favour. This can be partial or a full summary judgement motion. If granted, that will dispose of the entire case. David: And then, I would imagine that the next step will be trials. Is that correct? Joseph: Exactly. This is what people confuse with the litigation process as a whole. Trials are a chance, as you see on TV, you go before a judge if it’s a bench trial or a judge and a jury if it’s a jury trial. Each side presents its evidence, makes it arguments to the judge and ultimately, the judge or the jury will make fact findings that will end the matter. We talked about the process, we understand the process, what are some helpful tips or hints that people that are worried about having been sued or looking to file a suit can use to minimize cost? David: Joseph, there’s a couple of suggestions, first and foremost, we always advice our clients to be actively engaged in the process. The client that is actively engaged can absolutely minimize their cost. Another couple practical steps that they can take is prior to the lawsuit actually being filed, we always recommend that our clients gather important documents. Any documents or evidence that we believe are going to be relevant to the case, gather those documents up. Number two, put together a list of potential witnesses and parties for the suite. And then, after the lawsuit has been filed and during discovery, we always advice our clients to speak with individuals and employees at their companies and make sure that they preserve documents and evidence that are going to be used in the case. Remember, a party that does not preserve documents and rather destroys evidence can be sanctioned by a court. That can involve anything from having to pay the other side’s attorney’s fees all the way to having your pleadings struck by the court. So, it’s a very serious matter. Joseph: David, if your pleadings are struck, that would mean you essentially lose your lawsuit. Is that correct? David: Absolutely. So, we’ve talked a little bit about the litigation process. We’ve also touched on some tips. What really can our clients expect throughout the litigation process? Joseph: There are several things, David. Litigation is expensive. It’s time consuming. It’s constantly changing on a case-by-case basis. And so, as you mentioned, clients need to be actively involved in their case because strategies at the beginning of the trial change at the end over the course of a few days. Strategies at the beginning of a lawsuit change as discovery is revealed.

International tax disputes have assumed significance post the 2008 financial crisis, as governments are jostling for their share of tax revenues. Economic double taxation is increasingly a threat as alternative dispute resolution processes under MAP have slowed down. MNCs are debating options for settling tax disputes. Post implementation of the BEPS actions, transfer pricing and tax disputes may rise in the short to medium term until the dust settles on the implementation of double non-taxation principles. MNCs will need to strategise to mitigate the risk of long term litigation. Joined by clients, Taxand advisors from India and the UK investigated real experiences of litigation and alternative dispute resolution with local tax authorities and cross-border tax disputes, drawing out practical issues that will be of benefit to those engaged in disputes with fiscal authorities worldwide.

Financial Mis-selling IMPORTANT NEWS ON BRINGING CLAIMS FOR ADDITIONAL REFUNDS ON THE BASIS THAT (IN CERTAIN CASES ONLY) THE BANK SHOULD HAVE PAID COMPOUND INTEREST AND NOT SIMPLE 8% INTEREST ON PPI AWARDS This last 10 days has been incredibly busy as I have been engaged with 4 hearings and trials all packed into the same period dealing with the issue of bringing new PPI claims for an additional refund because the consumer thought that he has not been paid enough in the original offer. Here I deal with 2 judgments in two of our cases and I also touch on 2 cases that we settled on a “drop-hands” basis. I discuss the most important thing to come out of the two judgments (both county court district judges so not a high court but very interesting and revealing of what judge’s may do) on the issues of: 1. Causation and the importance of actually proving not just that the consumer had compound interest losses but that the bank’s actions caused them or contributed to them. 2. You still need to fully particularise a claim even where a bank has made an “admission” in their original offer of redress. So you may have to prove the mis-sale all over again. 3. Judge’s may not take kindly to a consumer who wants a second bite at the cherry. So even where the bank has not made the consumer sign in full and final settlement in respect of the original refund a judge may still find against a consumer, simply because they do not like the idea of a consumer coming back for more like Oliver Twist. But the converse may also apply where a consumer has signed a full and final settlement form but was under pressure to do so or felt obliged to do so and was in a weak bargaining position. 4. The Unfair Relationships Test (Consumer Credit Act 1974 as amended) is an incredibly powerful tool in the hands of consumers and the banks are right to be afraid. Compound interest can be claimed but the courts are a long way from routinely awarding it, preferring instead to fall back on simple 8% if at all possible, unless you have good proof of the contrary. In time this may change but probably not for a few years.

What is LEGAL AID? What does LEGAL AID mean? LEGAL AID meaning, definition & explanation - LEGAL AID definition - LEGAL AID explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Legal aid is the provision of assistance to people otherwise unable to afford legal representation and access to the court system. Legal aid is regarded as central in providing access to justice by ensuring equality before the law, the right to counsel and the right to a fair trial. This article describes the development of legal aid and its principles, primarily as known in Europe, the Commonwealth of Nations and the United States. A number of delivery models for legal aid have emerged, including duty lawyers, community legal clinics and the payment of lawyers to deal with cases for individuals who are entitled to legal aid. Legal aid is essential to guaranteeing equal access to justice for all, as provided for by Article 6.3 of the European Convention on Human Rights regarding criminal law cases. Especially for citizens who do not have sufficient financial means, the provision of legal aid to clients by governments will increase the likelihood, within court proceedings, of being assisted by legal professionals for free (or at a lower cost) or of receiving financial aid. Legal aid has a close relationship with the welfare state, and the provision of legal aid by a state is influenced by attitudes towards welfare. Legal aid is a welfare provision by the state to people who could otherwise not afford counsel from the legal system. Legal aid also helps to ensure that welfare provisions are enforced by providing people entitled to welfare provisions, such as social housing, with access to legal advice and the courts. Historically legal aid has played a strong role in ensuring respect for economic, social and cultural rights which are engaged in relation to social security, housing, social care, health and education service provision, which may be provided publicly or privately, as well as employment law and anti-discrimination legislation. Jurists such as Mauro Cappelletti argue that legal aid is essential in providing individuals with access to justice, by allowing the individual legal enforcement of economic, social and cultural rights. His views developed in the second half of the 20th century, when democracies with capitalist economies established liberal welfare states that focused on the individual. States acted as contractors and service providers within a market-based philosophy that emphasised the citizen as consumer. This led to an emphasis on individual enforcement to achieve the realisation of rights for all. Prior to the mid-20th century, literature on legal aid emphasised collective enforcement of economic, social and cultural rights. As classic welfare states were built in the 1940s and following World War II, an underlying principle was that citizens had collective responsibility for economic, social and cultural rights; and the state assumed responsibility for those unable to provide for themselves through illness and unemployment. The enforcement of economic, social and cultural rights was to be collective, through policies rather than individual legal action. Laws were enacted to support welfare provisions, though these were regarded as laws for planners, not lawyers. Legal aid schemes were established, as it was assumed that the state had a responsibility to assist those engaged in legal disputes, but they initially focused primarily on family law and divorce.

First of all, consider your family relationship. It is going to change when you sue a stepmother, a brother, a mother, a dad, a sister or another relative. Two, try to salvage any relationship that you have with these people because once you initiate this estate lawsuit, it’s probably going to be changed forever. Three, seek, if you can, the intervention of some third party; a family member, clergy or a mediator to try to resolve the dispute that you’re engaged in. Four, if all that fails and you’re going to initiate estate litigation, get a tough trial attorney who limits his or her practice to litigation involving Wills, Trusts and estates or guardianships and not someone who just prepares Wills or Trusts. There’s a lot of probate lawyers or Will and Trust lawyers who do a very good job but they don’t try cases.

http://www.thepeddyberglawfirm.com The rights, relationships and conduct of the people and business entities engaged in commerce are the focus of a branch of civil law commonly referred to as commercial litigation. A commercial litigation attorney must be well-versed in many areas of the law, including: - Contracts - Collections - Bankruptcy - Fraudulent transactions - Corporate formations and operations - Real estate - Torts - Mergers and acquisitions - Finance and banking - Employment and labor law - Evaluating the Problem and Formulating a Strategy Whether it is a new business just starting operations, or an older, established business, disputes involving other companies, consumers, government agencies or suppliers can be a drain on the resources of a company. A commercial litigation attorney is usually in the best position to evaluate the matter that is in dispute and formulate a plan to resolve it as quickly and efficiently as is feasible under the circumstances. Through training, education and experience, a commercial litigation attorney knows that litigation might not be the most efficient method for resolving a commercial dispute. Negotiation, mediation and arbitration are alternative methods of dispute resolution that can cut the time and expense usually associated with the litigation process. Depending upon the circumstances surrounding the matter in dispute, a skilled (and experienced) litigation attorney is prepared to take the case to trial in front of a judge or jury if other methods of resolving the dispute fail. Avoiding Disputes A commercial litigation attorney can help a business to avoid conflicts through a review of a company’s policies, procedures, documents and practices. Frequently, a business that is plagued by conflicts involving employees might benefit from having an attorney prepare employment agreements and manuals containing rules, practices, and procedures for employees. Written agreements and rules help to avoid areas of conflict while, at the same time, providing business owners with documentary evidence to use in court if a dispute arises that cannot be resolved without litigation. Diverse Areas of Commercial Litigation Commercial litigation can encompass a wide-ranging and diverse variety of issues and business practices that are common in today’s world of international commerce. Some areas in which attorneys can help a business include: - Structuring financing and agreements for the acquisition of buildings and equipment - Overseeing mergers and acquisitions from their early stages through conclusion - Developing policies and procedures involving employees - Helping the company to remain in compliance with government regulatory agencies The Peddy Berg Law Firm, PLLC 8655 E.

[2017] UKSC 78 UKSC 2016/0174 O'Connor (Appellant) v Bar Standards Board (Respondent) On appeal from the Court of Appeal Civil Division (England and Wales) The issues in this case are: Where a person claims that a prosecution has been brought in breach of her human rights, does the time limit for bringing proceedings under the Human Rights Act 1998 run from the date of her acquittal or conviction or the date on which any appeals are concluded? Whether the High Court judge was correct to conclude, for the purposes of the summary judgment application, that the appellant’s claim of indirect discrimination contrary to arts.6 and 14 ECHR had a real prospect of success. The appellant invites the Court to reject consideration of this issue on the basis that the High Court has already decided that summary judgment is inappropriate, and that is of itself a compelling reason for the case to go to trial. The respondent seeks permission to adduce fresh evidence on this issue. The appellant is a black practising barrister. On 28 September 2009 the respondent, the Bar Standards Board, received a complaint that she had engaged in the unauthorised conduct of litigation contrary to the Bar Code of Conduct. As a result of the complaint, disciplinary proceedings were brought and charges were referred to the Disciplinary Tribunal. On 23 May 2011 five disciplinary charges were found proven by the Tribunal and the appellant was advised as to her future conduct. She appealed to the Visitors to the Inns of Court, which on 17 August 2012 allowed her appeal on all counts. On 21 February 2013, the appellant issued her current claim against the respondent. Deputy Master Eyre of the High Court struck out her claim, finding that they had no prospect of success and, in any case, her heads of claim under the Human Rights Act 1998 were brought outside of the one-year time limit in s.7 of the Act and no application had been made for an extension of time. The Deputy Master’s decision was appealed to the High Court. In the High Court, Warby J held that the appellant’s claim for indirect discrimination in terms of art.14 ECHR was adequately pleaded and sustainable for the purposes of a summary judgment but upheld the Deputy Master’s decision that the claim was time barred under s.7 of the Human Rights Act. The Court of Appeal upheld the decision of Warby J on time bar and dismissed the appeal. The Supreme Court unanimously allows the appeal. The appellant commenced the present proceedings within the period of one year beginning with the date on which the act complained of took place, as required by section 7(5)(a) of the Human Rights Act 1998.

Lawmakers on the legal and Parliamentary affairs committee have faulted Uganda Revenue Authority for paying about 2.5 billion shillings to foreign lawyers without justification. The tax body sought the services of Curtis, Mallet- Prevost a UK based firm to help the URA legal team defend Uganda in five cases of tax arbitration over oil disputes in Ugandan courts. The MPs wondered why the tax authority engaged the external lawyers abroad and at home yet they had a team of in-house lawyers backed by others from the Attorney General’s chambers.
