Craig Elder picks up on his recent shared services seminar and gives a real insight into issues for those considering shared services. Anja Beriro looks at another interesting case on the Teckal exemption. Vicki Hair from our charities team looks at charitable conflicts of interest which will be incredibly useful for those public sector bodies looking at alternative delivery models which are increasingly including charitable bodies. Neil Walker has provided two articles this month, one looking at a recent case on break clauses and another on village greens and the difference between as of right and by right. Finally, Iain Patterson from our employment team provides a look at results of the living wage commissions 12 month enquiry.
