New Addition to Mumbles Office

Peter Lynn and Partners are proud to welcome Katherine Simpson to their Mumbles office.

Katherine, who joined the firm in May, specialises in residential conveyancing and has an unrivalled knowledge of the property market in Mumbles and Gower.  Katherine commented, “I am looking forward to working from the Mumbles office and continuing the client relationships I have built over many years”.

THE IMPORTANCE OF PROTECTING YOUR PRODUCTS

Parents with young children (and even those without children) will have heard of ‘Fidget Spinners’.

The latest craze to take over the school yard was invented by Catherine Hettinger and most would assume she has become fantastically wealthy on the back of her invention however the reality is quite the opposite.

Catherine could not afford to renew the patent of the popular children’s craze she created and therefore makes no money from the global sales.

Her story is an excellent example of how important it is to protect your intellectual property. Continued protection of her Patent or even registering her trademark would have prevented her losing out on…

IMMEDIATE CHANGES TO TRIBUNAL FEES ANNOUNCED

In perhaps the most important judgment in employment law of the last fifty years, the government announced the abolition of employment tribunal fees after the Supreme Court ruled them unlawful.

The surprise ruling by seven justices overturned judgments by the High Court in 2013 and the Court of Appeal in 2015. Instead, the justices unanimously backed an appeal by trade union Unison which argued that the fees were introduced unlawfully.

The immediate consequence is that the Fees Order is quashed so that as of today fees cease to be payable for claims in the employment tribunal (ET) and appeals to the EAT, and…

An ageing population faces challenges but lasting power of attorney offers protection and control over vital affairs.

In the UK, the number of over-65s now outnumbers people aged under-16 for the first time in our history. During the last century, life expectancy increased by 30 years but managing our affairs as we get older can, for some, prove difficult.

Declining health, sudden illness and dementia can all mean that we struggle with day-to-day management of house-hold and financial affairs and there may come a time when a trusted friend or loved one would be better suited to pick up the reins.

This is…

ISSUES THAT CAN IMPACT ON THE VALUE OF A HOME

Our homes are our most significant asset but from a property solicitor’s point of view when it comes to buying or selling, the value of a property depends on far more than its size, condition and location.

Most of us will be familiar with the searches that solicitors carry out once they are instructed by a buyer but not everyone will be aware of how import-ant they are or some of the pitfalls that can arise.

A property can be in prime condition and yet be sub-ject to some very knotty legal issues. Here are five examples of issues that we…
