Legal costs firm Kain Knight, market leaders in the legal costs industry, and The Judge, the world’s leading broker of commercial litigation funding and ATE insurance, are hosting a landmark seminar for insolvency practitioners and insolvency lawyers in October.

The seminar, to be held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in the City of London at 08.00 on Thursday 10 October, will examine how the far-reaching Jackson reforms to civil litigation procedures which came into force this April will impact on the restructuring and insolvency market.

Nick Hood, a director at Kain Knight and an insolvency practitioner with the Begbies Traynor Group for the past 23 years, will chair the seminar.

The key note address will be given by Frances Coulson, Head of Insolvency and Business Recovery at solicitors Moon Beever and former President of R3, the insolvency trade body representing almost every UK licensed insolvency practitioner.  Frances will review the initial impact of Jackson, as well as the practical issues and uncertainties now facing insolvency practitioners, restructuring professionals and their advisors.

Litigation funding has been materially affected by the Jackson reforms.  James Blick from The Judge will explain the changes and set out the options now available to litigants.

The event is free of charge. To get full details and to register for the seminar, visit the Kain Knight website www.kain-knight.co.uk or call Penny Ridoutt at Kain Knight.

New right to paid leave for bereaved parents: A welcome move

Kimberley Manning DAS

This year, like many in recent years, has seen some key changes within the employment law field, with the government, trade unions and lobbyists remaining endlessly engaged in seeking to impose their interpretation of fair balance between employers and their respective workforces. Although consensus on that equilibrium can never really be achieved, sometimes there are pieces of legislative movement which are difficult to argue with regardless of your perspective: This is one of those. Published on 13 October 2017, the Parental Bereavement (Pay and Leave) Bill would provide for the first time a legal right to parents who are employed and have suffered the death of a child, a minimum of two weeks’ leave in which to grieve.
