1 Family law The Family team at Leeds Day understands that Family and Matrimonial matters require more than just keen negotiating skills and technical excellence. We never lose sight of the real issues that are important to you and we work closely with you to achieve swift practical and wherever possible, amicable solutions. We recognize that maintaining amicable relationships is all important particularly where there are children involved. The family team is an extremely busy and highly regarded part of the firm, there is a wealth of experience across the team in the following areas: Divorce, Separation and the breakdown of relationships Domestic violence and emergency injunctions Children matters including care proceedings, residence, contact, parental responsibility, changes of name and adoption Financial implications of divorce and breakdown of relationships including maintenance and property Prenuptial settlements The team subscribe to the Resolution Code of Practice which encourages settlement of disputes by negotiation wherever possible. Whilst we aim to achieve our client's objectives by negotiation, we will take effective legal proceedings where appropriate to protect their interests. We have specialist knowledge of business and pension issues relating to the division of assets and we can call upon assistance from our other departments on commercial matters, trust issues and investments. We have a proven track record of achieving successful financial settlements, often without recourse to Court. The family team takes a sensitive and objective approach to divorce. Whatever the circumstances divorce will often be a source of sadness and disappointment.we see it as our role to guide you through the legal system, using our considerable expertise in difficult situations and making them as straightforward as possible. If you have a family problem, large or small, you can always discuss it with us. We are here to help. Cohabitee's rights and claims Collaborative family work. E

2 Employment Employment laws are becoming more complex and changes are implemented on a regular basis. We make it our business to be ahead of the field. For Employers we can produce documents on all aspects of Employment Law. Leeds Day can advise Employees on their rights and potential grounds for claims for Unfair Dismissal, Redundancy or Discrimination. For Employers Increasingly Employers need access to specialist advice to help them balance the need for efficient and profitable management against the increasing (and ever changing) rights of Employees. Our team at Leeds Day recommend that Employers seek advice before implementing changes or taking action which may result in a claim being made by an Employee; the simple fact is that the sooner we are involved, the more we can do to help. We act in a supportive role for many organisations in the locality of Huntingdon, St Neots, St Ives and beyond and therefore have an understanding of our client's business needs and can help tailor these with the rights of their Employees. Specifically, we can: Prepare employment contracts tailored to your business needs Prepare policy documentation Advise on all manner of day to day employment issues Negotiate settlements Prepare Compromise Agreements Representation at Employment Tribunals For Employees Standing up for your rights against your employer can be a daunting task.there is more and more legislation that affords you certain rights during your employment and not just arising from a dismissal. It is sometimes possible to enforce your rights but still maintain a working relationship with your employer. If you find yourself in a difficult situation, to improve your chances of a successful Employment Tribunal Claim, you must follow the correct procedures. The earlier you seek advice, the better. Leeds Day advises and represents Employees on their rights and potential grounds for claims such as Unfair Dismissal, Redundancy and Discrimination. The team at Leeds Day will provide you with information which will enable you to take decisive and effective action to protect yourself and your livelihood. Provide detailed advice on implementing any policy changes T F E

3 Company and Commercial At Leeds Day we can help make sense of the legal Directors duties issues facing our business clients both large and small, from all sectors of industry. We are able to work closely with our Clients to help them to achieve their business goals; by providing them with first class information and guidance, we enable them to make informed decisions for the future. We believe that good communication is the basis of successful relationships and we understand that, whatever the needs of a business, it is imperative that their solicitors provide pro-active, pragmatic and commercial solutions. For this reason, our team at Leeds Day see the advantage to our Clients in building long term relationships; by understanding the needs and aspirations of their business we help our Clients achieve their goals, avoid problems and manage the risks facing businesses today.

4 Wills and Probate The role of the Leeds Day private client team is to provide a responsive service on all family and trust matters including protecting family wealth. Wills We all need to make a Will and there are several very good reasons for doing so: You can save a sizable amount of Inheritance Tax being paid. You can guarantee that your assets will be distributed as you wish when you die. You can avoid many unnecessary complications which can arise adding to the grief of the bereaved and the expense of winding up the your estate. You can appoint a Guardian for your children. If you die without a Will (intestate) the law dictates who will receive your assets. If you are not married but living with your partner and die without having made a Will, your partner will receive nothing. Probate At Leeds Day we provide fast, expert advice whether there is a Will or not. We will complete the HM Revenue and Customs forms and other papers necessary to obtain a Grant of Representation to enable the deceased s assets to be released and distributed. If the deceased did not consider tax planning before their death, it is possible to vary the Will or the effect of the intestacy and thereby create substantial tax savings up to 2 years later. Our probate team concentrates on the efficient management and administration of an estate, ensuring it is handled sensitively and swiftly to ensure the deceased s affairs are wound up, assets transferred or sold, and the beneficiaries receive their entitlement as quickly as possible. Tax Planning When making a Will, the Leeds Day team will ensure that proper tax planning is considered. We can advise on gifts and other tax planning and tax saving opportunities (including Trusts).We focus on preserving and enhancing clients assets by advising on tax and succession planning. This may include transferring assets from one generation to another in a structured way to minimise tax liability and other problems. Trusts & Settlements Trusts are traditionally used to efficiently minimise taxation and distribute wealth. Services for Older People Leeds Day has a special range of services to meet the needs of older Clients, or those with elderly relatives. Home visits can be arranged and we place great importance on the establishment of a good relationship between our clients and their solicitor. T F E

5 Civil Litigation and Disputes In this increasingly competitive world, it is perhaps inevitable that disputes will arise. When they do, you need to act quickly; our litigation team at Leeds Day will guide Clients through to resolution as smoothly as possible. Our areas of expertise include: Debt collection Tenancy and property disputes Contractual disputes We provide a realistic and objective assessment of Negligence the situation, suggest possible courses of action and discuss in full the implications and likely outcomes. We aim to achieve practical, workable solutions that suit the objectives of the business or individuals involved. If Court proceedings are necessary, we have the technical ability and knowledge to ease the process for you or we can help you resolve it by alternative means such as Mediation and Alternative Dispute Resolution. We have an experienced team, skilled in handling proceedings both in the County Court and the High Court. Disputes can range from breach of contract and sale of goods disagreements to major issues involving construction, engineering and property. We also advise on internal issues of an organisation, such as Partnership and Shareholder disputes. Our litigators work closely with other lawyers within Leeds Day specialising in Employment, Company, Commercial and Property and Family law. Because we take a holistic view of what our business Clients need, we can look at the wider implications of any given course of action. Probate Disputes Intellectual Property disputes Dilapidation and Renewal Claims Building Disputes Land and Surveying Disputes Terms and conditions of Contract, Business to Business breach of contract Directors and Partnership disputes Insurance disputes Sale of Goods Act and Supply of Services Act Claims Mediation and Alternate Dispute Resolution Small Claims E

6 Residential Conveyancing Buying and selling your home is often a stressful experience; there are so many things that need to be arranged. At Leeds Day, our specialist teams aim to reduce the stress of your house sale and purchase by taking control of the process, so that you can direct your attention to the other 101 things that need to be done! We've taken the time to work out how to make the sale and purchase as easy as possible for our Clients by being accessible, efficient and keeping in touch. You can ring us, , or just drop in at any time, with or without an appointment to discuss your sale and purchase. Because our department specialises in conveyancing, you will find that you will be able to talk to someone who can tell you how your sale and purchase is progressing at any time during normal office hours. We can also put together your Home Information Pack (HIP); all homes in England and Wales with 3 or more bedrooms must have one before they are sold. For individuals our work includes: Freehold/leasehold sales and purchases Re-mortgages Lease extension/leasehold enfranchisement Matrimonial transfers Home information packs We have invested a great deal of time in developing a case management computer system to ensure that your matter is dealt with as efficiently and smoothly as possible which results in greater efficiency all round. Because we understand how stressful moving house can be, we give a high priority to keeping you informed about the progress. We make the effort to tell you; (either in a letter, or by phone) every time a step is taken. If things are held up for any reason we will tell you why. E

7 Personal Injury Accidents can happen at any time and in any place in the home, at work, at school, on the road, on holiday or playing sport. Our expert team at Leeds Day have helped many clients make successful personal injury claims. Someone else may have responsibility for how or why an accident happened and you may be entitled to compensation. Perhaps you have not thought about making a claim before as the person you believe is responsible for the accident could not afford to pay compensation however people and organisations are often insured against these claims. The idea of going to Court may seem daunting, but most cases are settled out of Court and as a result of successful legal action only a very small number of cases go all the way to trial. Although you may have physically and emotionally recovered from your injuries it iss possible that you, suffered or are still suffering financially as a result of the injury. For example you may have experienced: Loss of earnings Nursing costs Medical costs Travel expenses You can claim for these and other losses as well as for your injuries. You could be entitled to compensation for: a road traffic accident injury at work industrial diseases a slip, trip or fall faulty goods a fatal accident a criminal act many other types of accident We appreciate that you may be so worried about the costs involved in bringing a personal injury claim that you decide not to pursue a claim; many innocent accident victims fail to make a claim because they are concerned about the costs. Leeds Day can offer you a no win, no fee Conditional Fee Agreement. This means that even if you lose your claim you will not be asked to pay any of our costs. If you win we will claim our costs from your opponent. For your protection we can arrange insurance to cover the risk of having to pay your opponent s costs if you lose. If we think you will win and agree to take the case under a Conditional Fee Agreement then you will have nothing to pay up front and we will work with you to bring your case to a successful conclusion. We will provide you with quality legal advice, tailored to your particular needs, concerns and priorities. E
