At Morton Fraser Lawyers we have highlighted clarity as our guiding principle.
This directs the way we communicate, the way we advise, the way we conduct relationships with our clients and the way we are totally transparent and upfront about our charges. This applies to all our services from the straightforward to the more complex.
Summer is here and, with it, brings two exciting events. First, the World Cup which is, once again, not directly relevant to anyone in this jurisdiction. Iceland scarfs are available to buy at your local sports retailer. Secondly, the General Data Protection Regulation has come into force which is directly relevant to all of us. Businesses have been incredibly slow to take steps to comply with the new regulation despite the onerous requirements and the new penalties for non compliance. One of this month's articles sets out what you need to be thinking about in practical terms.This month's bulletin also contains important updates on expenses, the role of a reporter in insolvency proceedings (which is of wider relevance) and the enforceability of "no oral modification" clauses in contracts, an issue which has been unclear in the UK until now.
