our legal opinions

  • House of Lords rejects judicial review reform

    The House of Lords has rejected the Government’s plan to change the criteria for bringing judicial reviews. Before a judicial review can be brought, an applicant must first seek the court’s permission. As originally drafted, Criminal Justice and Courts Bill would have required courts to refuse permission if it seems “highly likely that the outcome […] The post House of Lords rejects judicial review reform appeared first on law, less ordinary - legal opinions from Browne Jacobson.

  • ‘Fair, proportionate and effective’ – Striking out dishonest claims

    The Transport Committee has published its Fifth Special Report ‘Driving premiums down: fraud and the cost of motor insurance‘. The consultation is an important step in the further implementation of the Jackson reforms, following LASPO 2012. Whilst the ABI figures show improvement with reduced premiums, the AA has noticed a reversing trend. These proposed reforms […] The post ‘Fair, proportionate and effective’ – Striking out dishonest claims appeared first on law, less ordinary - legal opinions from Browne Jacobson.

  • Savile victim claim investigated for fraud

    The name Jimmy Savile evokes strong emotion. His abuse of his trusted position has caused far reaching consequences. The victims have found their voice finally, and now pursue their right to be compensated, but in an unusual twist, police have announced they are investigating the claim by Savile’s great-niece for suspected fraud. Detectives have confirmed […] The post Savile victim claim investigated for fraud appeared first on law, less ordinary - legal opinions from Browne Jacobson.

  • Litigants in Person – some hope for the future?

    There has been a very significant rise in the number of Litigants in Person (LiPs) in all areas of law; a report recently showing that the number of family law cases where both parties were represented fell by nearly 40% in April to June 2014 compared to the same quarter the previous year. The lack […] The post Litigants in Person – some hope for the future? appeared first on law, less ordinary - legal opinions from Browne Jacobson.

  • Advisers stand liable for fraud disclosure failures

    The curious case in the Scottish courts of Frank Houlgate Investment Company Limited v Biggart Baillie LLP suggests that where a fraud is apparent (in this case explicitly so) professionals have an implied continuing legal duty to other parties to disclose the fact. Choosing not to in such circumstances could well render the professional advisers […] The post Advisers stand liable for fraud disclosure failures appeared first on law, less ordinary - legal opinions from Browne Jacobson.

  • Browne Jacobson wins national award for excellence in client service

    Browne Jacobson has received a national award for delivering excellent client service from the Law Society at its annual awards event in London. In picking up the award for Excellence in Client Service, the firm beat off competition from nine other regional, national and international firms including Berwin Leighton Paisner and Blake Morgan. The Law Society Excellence Awards is one of the highlights in the UK legal calendar and is designed to recognise both best practice and celebrate excellence, innovation and outstanding achievement across law firms of all sizes in England and Wales. The distinguished judging panel, which included the Legal Ombudsman Andrew Sampson, chair of the Legal Services Consumer Panel Elisabeth Davies and chair of the Environmental Agency Lord Chris Smith of Finsbury, applauded the firm for demonstrating the highest quality and consistency of client service delivery. The judges added: “Browne Jacobson implemented a wide range of initiatives from a traditional client charter to a modern microsite to embed exceptional client service in its practice. Practical support tools made Browne Jacobson staff ambassadors for outstanding client service.” Earlier this year, Browne Jacobson became the first UK law firm to be awarded an ‘exceptional’ three star rating for its client service by Investor in Customers – a mark attained by only 16% of companies undergoing a first-time assessment. The award was presented to the firm’s Managing Partner Iain Blatherwick by Andrew Caplen, President of the Law Society. Iain Blatherwick said: “We operate in a highly competitive market place and are always looking for ways to raise the bar when it comes to delivering an unparalleled standard of service to our clients. “Delivering client service excellence is intrinsic to Browne Jacobson‘s business philosophy so to be recognised by the Law Society for all our hard work and effort in this area is a tremendous achievement.” ...Read More
