Turbervilles Business Newsletter - Autumn 2011


Welcome to our autumn newsletter.

In this edition, we look at what happens when shareholders fall out and refuse to meet. There’s a report on the accountant who must pay compensation for trying to entice clients away from his former company, and we see why a simple mistake means an English company must apply Indian law when dealing with a contract dispute.

We suggest ways to protect your cash flow following a surge in the number of firms facing financial difficulties.

We look at issues facing start-up companies as the number of new businesses continues to grow, despite the recession, and there’s a report on why you should be careful about who you allow to sign your contracts.

A company director has been found guilty of wrongful trading, and some landlords are still facing unfair terms from some letting agents.

We see how a procedural error turned redundancies into unfair dismissals, and there’s the case of a company director who was held personally liable for a discriminatory dismissal.

We look at why a company director was held to have breached his fiduciary duty when he used equipment loaned to his firm, and there’s an interesting case examining “when do vacant premises really become vacant?”.

We hope you find these articles interesting. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you would like more information about the issues they raise, or any other legal issue affecting you or your business.
