Turbervilles Business Newsletter - Summer 2010


Welcome to our Summer newsletter. In this edition, we look at the measures outlined by the new Government that could affect your business. We see how the case of a director found guilty of wrongful trading highlights the dangers involved in fighting to keep a struggling company afloat, and we look at how two accountants were held liable for their partner’s losses. There are new measures to help developers and we report on a building project that was allowed to go ahead because covenants affecting the land could no longer be enforced. There’s the case of the landlord who must pay damages for wrongful eviction, and we examine the unscrupulous tricks being used by firms to delay payment. A print firm has won compensation for negligent advice, and a director has won the right to buy out a colleague who acted unfairly. Employee fit notes and the right to request Time to Train are now coming into effect, and we examine the case of the two businessmen who won damages for a breach of confidentiality. We hope you find these articles interesting. Please do not 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.
