2 about us Band Hatton Button (incorporating Varley Hibbs) LLP has come into being as a result of the merger in spring 2013 of three of Coventry s leading law firms, Varley Hibbs, Button Legal and Band Hatton, and can trace its roots through these firms back to The firm works with private, individual clients and businesses across Coventry and Warwickshire, nationally and beyond and, through its predecessors has a well established reputation for providing service excellence to all clients. Our team of lawyers has extensive experience, which enables us to provide specialist advice to our individual and business clients. We specialise in a wide range of legal services and place great emphasis on the importance of communication, accessibility and responsiveness, and to building a strong personal relationship between Solicitor and client. We are always genuinely concerned for, and committed to, the best interest of our clients, and are conscious of the need for our advice to be not only technically accurate, but also practical, taking account of the wider commercial realities. We appreciate that our clients are looking for legal solutions. Our reputation for excellence in client care is underpinned by our internationally recognised ISO Quality Standard accreditation, demonstrating thoroughness, accuracy and efficiency in the advice we provide and the way in which we carry out our work. We are consistently commended in the Legal 500, which recognises the top law firms in England and Wales, and our range of skills is further enhanced by our membership of Lawnet - one of the leading national groups of more than 70 independent law firms throughout the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland. Our established relationship with leading London law firms, and our membership of Lawnet s sister European Group, also gives us and our clients access to resources incomparably stronger than many other firms in our region. We are conveniently based at the heart of the national motorway network with easy vehicle access and good car parking facilities, a short walking distance from Coventry Railway Station and within a few miles of Birmingham International Airport.

3 residential property services Buying or selling a home is likely to be the most important financial transaction many will ever enter into and property law is complex and constantly evolving. Moving House with Band Hatton Button Moving house is ranked alongside changing jobs, getting divorced or having a baby as one of the most stressful times in people s lives. It is therefore essential to receive sound and professional legal advice and Band Hatton Button can help. Ensuring our legal advice is accessible and personal in its nature is the cornerstone of the service we provide. The calibre of our lawyers, scope of our expertise, personal service and focus on high quality advice sets us apart from many other firms of solicitors and others who offer conveyancing services. We have dedicated executives who oversee the entire transaction from start to finish, supported by a team of experienced practitioners. Taking advantage of the latest IT ensures any member of the team can provide up-to date details of the transaction and deal with any queries quickly and efficiently. Band Hatton Button can make buying or selling a house, or doing both at the same time, a speedy, efficient and less stressful process. Our team will keep you informed every step of the way. Above all else, we pride ourselves on our level of communication with clients and all parties in the chain. We see our role as solicitors, as wider than, the legal process itself. As experienced professionals in the property field, we can provide invaluable guidance in connection with a number of other related aspects of a house move. These include the choice of estate agent on the sale of a property, advising on the correct types of survey available for the property being purchased and the choice of a surveyor to carry out the work. The Services we Provide Our residential property executives can advise on: Sales and purchases Transfers of equity Mortgages, remortgages and further advances Equity release Right to buy Shared ownership Deeds of gift Part exchanges Residential lettings for landlords or tenants Property disputes Town and country planning Conveyancing Quality Scheme We are accredited as members of the Law Society s Conveyancing Quality Scheme, a further demonstration of the quality and practicality of the advice we are able to provide.

4 wills, trusts & probate One of the most important things anyone can do is to secure the future for the ones they care about. We have vast experience in helping our clients to put their personal affairs into good order. At Band Hatton Button, our goal is simple we want to help safeguard and enhance the wealth of our clients. We deliver a service that allows clients to protect, develop and ultimately pass on their wealth to their chosen beneficiaries with complete peace of mind. We take the time to understand a client s financial and family circumstances so we can offer clear, practical advice on protecting financial resources, whilst maintaining flexibility. We believe in forming strong working relationships with our clients. In many cases we have acted for several generations of the same family, and much of our work comes from word-of-mouth referrals. As members of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) we are at the forefront of legal developments and best practice in asset protection and wealth management Our team also includes members of other national organisations such as Solicitors for the Elderly and the Law Society s Private Client Section. We have one of the largest and most successful private client practices in Coventry. Wills and Protection of Family Wealth None of us know what will happen to us but making a Will and getting practical, sensible advice on UK inheritance tax laws and about how best to pass on assets is an essential part of that planning process. We can help clients to structure their Wills to protect their children, grandchildren and other heirs against creditor or divorce claims; we assist them in achieving their charitable aims tax-efficiently; and we enable them to make gifts and other transfers to keep the impact of gift and inheritance taxes to a minimum. We understand that our clients are individuals and their circumstances may demand a Will that s unique to them. Personal relationships, marriages and children, second marriages, business partnerships and property issues can sometimes mean that a Will needs to be more complex. We can advise on all the options available and tailor the Will to the exact requirements of the client. The right Will can be a strategic building block in the overall management of family wealth. Without a Will the laws of intestacy will determine who will receive someone s estate on their death. From simple to more complex estates, we can make the process of making a Will cost effective and straightforward. Powers of Attorney and the Court of Protection Sadly, almost all of us will be affected by issues of mental capacity in some way during our lifetimes, either as a sufferer, carer, family member or friend. Many people choose to plan ahead and set up Lasting Powers of Attorney or, before the law changed in October 2007, have already signed Enduring Powers of Attorney. Band Hatton Button can help clients to make future provision for a time when they or a relative are no longer capable of managing their own affairs. We can assist in creating Lasting Powers of Attorney and in the registration process for Lasting Powers of Attorney and existing Enduring Powers of Attorney. We specialise in advising clients on safeguarding their future, and can help them to put in place the best strategy to ensure their affairs are properly dealt with. We act for clients where no Power of Attorney has been made. Here, an application to the Court of Protection is required for someone to be appointed as a Deputy to administer a person s financial affairs and/or make healthcare decisions on his or her behalf. Trusts A trust can either be set up during lifetime or incorporated into a Will. It is the role of the appointed Trustees to manage the assets on behalf of the beneficiaries according to the terms of the Will or trust deed. Trusts can be useful to mitigate potential tax liabilities as well as preserve family wealth for future generations and/or vulnerable beneficiaries (such as minors or persons with disabilities). We have specialist trust lawyers who can assist with establishing trusts and with the ongoing administration of trusts. We can assist trustees with the production of trust accounts and with the completion of trust tax returns. When Someone Dies We recognise that dealing with the legalities following a death in the family can be difficult. We can help to guide the personal representatives through the process, explaining what steps need to be taken and how the deceased person s estate will pass, either under the Will or under the intestacy rules (if they did not leave a Will). We can assist with all aspects of probate and the administration of estates. We have extensive experience in dealing with high value and complex estates. We can also help to maximise tax savings for the estate and its beneficiaries. We can provide all the expert advice, assistance and reassurance necessary to make the process as straightforward as possible. In the event that a claim is brought, or needs to be brought, against the estate then we work alongside our Contentious Probate colleagues in our Litigation team. Working with You, for You We work closely with our clients accountants and financial advisers to deliver cost-effective tax and estate planning and Wills. Where required, we can also draw expertise from our corporate, property, family and litigation departments to provide complete legal services to suit the needs of our clients. We understand that dealing with these issues can be difficult and emotional, which is why we treat every case with sensitivity and care, and provide straightforward and practical advice.

5 employment services We believe our experience in handling employment disputes from both sides gives our clients access to rounded and practical advice that will be of benefit. We advise employees on: Disciplinary and grievance procedures Discrimination, victimisation and harassment Redundancy and business takeovers Rights of working parents Unfair dismissal Workplace stress Tribunal and court representation Unfair Dismissal Many people are dismissed every year without fair reason or procedure but Band Hatton Button can advise on rights and seek to negotiate proper compensation. In most instances, protection against unfair dismissal arises once the individual has been employed by the employer for a period of a year. There are limited circumstances in which the protection from unfair dismissal may arise earlier. Usually it is for an employer to show they have a fair reason for the dismissal but, even if this can be shown, the manner in which the procedure is conducted is crucial to the question of fairness. Tribunal and Court Representation Many disputes are not resolved amicably, and so it may be necessary for an employee to pursue his or her claim in an employment tribunal or court. Our employment department has substantial experience of successfully representing individuals in these environments. Disciplinary and Grievance Procedures Employees have extensive rights concerning the way in which disciplinary and grievance hearings are conducted. However, many rights do not arise unless specifically requested by the employee. We can advise you on your rights at disciplinary and grievance hearings. Discrimination, Victimisation and Harassment It is illegal to discriminate on grounds of gender, sexual orientation, marital status, gender reassignment, race, colour, nationality, natural origin, ethnic origin, disability, age, religion or belief. This behaviour still persists and the law provides workers with protection and powerful remedies. The law protects individuals against discrimination in a range of areas including the selection and appointment of staff, the arrangements for and access to promotion and training, and detrimental treatment including harassment and dismissal processes. Workplace Stress There have been numerous cases in recent years on the issue of stress at work, and the employer s liability for causing stress. Health and safety law obliges employers to take reasonable steps to ensure a safe system of work. This includes taking steps to limit the exposure of staff to stress. On the occasions that stress is caused by some form of discrimination, an individual can raise this matter in a complaint to a tribunal. In other situations the stress may give grounds for the employee to leave work and claim constructive dismissal. This area of law has become increasingly complicated but Band Hatton Button is able to provide expert guidance on the best way to deal with this problem.

6 family & matrimonial The breakdown of a personal relationship can be a stressful and emotional experience. Having decided to separate, a number of difficult decisions will need to be made, often in relation to children or property. Our Family Law specialists can advise and offer support during the entire process. We are experienced in providing the legal advice and guidance needed to make informed decisions. Our Expertise and Experience Our team of lawyers are experts in their field and have experience of dealing with a wide range of individual circumstances, from the relatively straightforward to resolving complex, high value cases.

These include occupational schemes such as police, fire service, NHS or personal pension schemes.

Other areas of expertise include: Maintenance orders Property adjustment - UK and abroad Division or transfer of business assets Trust deeds and inheritance issues Co-habitation agreements and trust deeds Financial settlement on separation of cohabiters Financial settlement for children Protection of assets Emergency applications relating to property Personal protection applications Adoption applications How we Work Our lawyers work closely with clients to achieve the most positive outcomes possible for them. We are able to offer our clients the opportunity to resolve issues outside of the courts using collaborative processes. This method enables all issues to be discussed and resolved through a series of meetings involving the parties and their lawyers. This also enables the parties to retain control over the process and provides the opportunity to discuss and resolve issues deemed to be of utmost importance. The process has shown itself to be extremely helpful in situations where the parties separation needs to be positively managed to avoid difficulties within a family business. The collaborative process can be used to reach agreement in relation to financial matters and to resolve children matters. Our team is a member of Resolution and complies with the Family Code of Practice and feedback, from clients, informs us that they especially value our discretion, commitment, sensitivity and approachability at such a difficult time. We have a proven track record in handling high profile, high value and complex family matters.

7 our litigation services Litigation and Disputes Our litigation department provides advice and assistance to a wide range of individual clients in areas as diverse as contentious probate, contractual disagreements, high and county court proceedings and judgments, personal injury and accident claims and can provide expert guidance about litigation funding and alternative methods of resolving disputes.
