    • How to Prepare for SMCR- A Guide for Solo-Regulated Firms Ahead of 9th December 2019

      22nd November 2019

      The Senior Managers and Certification Regime (SMCR) was first introduced in the banking sector in March 2016 with the aim of creating greater individual accountability of those working within financial institutions. The FCA hoped to strengthen the integrity of the financial services and increase protection for consumers in the wake of the scandals of previous years.

      From 9th December 2019, the regulations are to be extended to all FCA solo-regulated firms, meaning a further 50,000 businesses will be covered.

      This article looks at the impact the regulations will have and how such firms can prepare ahead of the looming December deadline. Continue reading »

    • Workplace Sexual Harassment Victim Secures Compensation

      14th November 2019

      Sexual harassment in the workplace is sadly not as rare as one would hope but, with the right legal advice, there is no reason why anyone should put up with it. In a recent case, a woman whose infatuated boss subjected her to unwelcome sexualised behaviour secured more than £30,000 in compensation (Shotton v Mark Harris Upholstery Limited and Another).

    • Is Your Will Out of Date? Execute a New One Before It’s Too Late!

      17th January 2020

      Allowing your will to become out of date stores up trouble for your loved ones. That was strikingly so in one case in which a successful businessman suffered a stroke before he could make a new will taking account of his changed financial and personal circumstances.

      The businessman had over the years made at least five wills, the most recent of which was a decade old. A draft new will had been found on his computer after he fell ill, but it had not been executed and was thus of no legal effect. The stroke had robbed him of his capacity to make decisions for himself or to make a fresh will.

      In those circumstances, his long-term partner and daughter applied to the High Court for execution of a statutory will, on the basis that his last extant will took no account of his dramatically changed circumstances and represented a wholly inappropriate disposition of his substantial estate.

      A further complication arose because the man’s son from a previous relationship was plagued by drug and alcohol addiction. His conduct towards his father and other members of his family had been extremely violent and menacing and had culminated in a criminal conviction and a lengthy prison sentence.

      The son, as a beneficiary of the extant will, would ordinarily have been entitled to be served with the proceedings and to be made a party to them. However, in the light of his behaviour, the Court took the rare step of dispensing with those requirements. The proposed statutory will would have no material adverse effect on the son and his involvement in the proceedings would potentially jeopardise his father’s care home placement and pose significant risks to the safety of others.

      For more information on how to obtain or update a Will, please contact Head of Wills & Probate, Christina Spencer on 01273 810079 or email her at: Christina.Spencer@healys.com
