Winter 2014

Welcome to the FWJ INFORMER.

We are committed to excellence and aim to provide the highest possible quality of legal services to our clients. The FWJ INFORMER explains some of the recent legal developments that are relevant to the asset based lending industry and how they affect the conduct of your business.

This edition of the FWJ INFORMER looks at key features of the Commercial Rent Arrears Recovery procedure that is coming into force on 6 April 2014. Our insolvency team looks at when a company is treated as being under the supervision of an insolvency practitioner in the context of the application of the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006.

Our litigation team looks at a couple of recent court decisions which are a useful reminder about the consideration that has to be given before winding up petitions are used as a debt recovery tool.

Finally, as part of our expanded services to our corporate clients, we look at some of the changes to employment law anticipated in 2014. If you would like an ‘employment law health check’ of your business, please contact us.
