first_imgSolicitors are being asked to help identify gaps in the law exposed by the Grenfell Tower fire, in which at least 80 people died when fire broke out at the 24-storey block in June.The universities of Kent and Bristol are conducting research for Shelter, a homelessness charity, about the challenges tenants face to ensure their homes are safe.Shelter wants to identify: gaps in current legislation which may make housing less safe or prevent residents from remedying problems; where the lack of enforcement undermines existing legal protections; and legal remedies to strengthen tenants’ protection.Following the fire the charity and the Housing Law Practitioners Association worked with North Kensington Law Centre to provide free daily drop-in advice clinics. Alison Mohammed, director of services at Shelter, told an all-party parliamentary group meeting on legal aid that many residents wanted to know their housing options.The universities are seeking evidence from tenants, social landlords, lawyers and other professionals. The survey’s findings will be included in an anonymised report for Shelter.Sir Martin Moore-Bick, chair of the Grenfell Tower Inquiry, is expected to hold a preliminary hearing this month. Last month the prime minister, Theresa May, accepted the retired Court of Appeal judge’s recommended terms of reference for the inquiry.The terms will cover the fire, the building’s history, its most recent refurbishment, the state of building and fire regulations, and aspects of the relationship between the tower’s residents and the local authority, including the days immediately following the fire. Local and central government response in the days following the fire will also be included.However, London law firm Hodge Jones & Allen, which is representing some of the victims, warned that the terms may not satisfy the government’s legal obligations to investigate the full circumstances of the tragedy.The universities’ survey closes at the end of this month.last_img read more

first_imgChallenger firm Keystone Law today announced its intention to float on the London Stock Exchange. Shares will begin trading on the AIM market on 27 November; the firm hopes to raise £15m from a placing price of 160p per share.The flotation is designed to increase brand recognition and enhance the group’s future growth potential, the firm said. Net proceeds of the placing of around £9m will redeem outstanding loans and leave the group debt-free. Existing shareholders who sell at the placing price stand to gain a total of £5m.James Knight (pictured), chief executive of Keystone Law Group plc, said: ‘Our decision to list on the London Stock Exchange will provide us with the most resilient and stable platform to support our ambitious growth plans long into the future. The UK legal services market is the second largest in the world and I believe the Keystone model is well placed to take advantage of this significant opportunity.’Launched in 2002 as Lawyers Direct and rebranded as Keystone Law in 2008, the business is designed around lawyers working remotely under one brand and accessing core back-office functions from a central facility.The firm’s 250 lawyers have no fixed remuneration, but receive between 60% and 75% of fees once Keystone has been paid for the work. Keystone reported annual revenue for 2016/17 of £25.6m and £2.1m profits.The firm converted to an alternative business structure in October 2013 and secured a £3.15m cash injection from private equity firm Root Capital the following year.On admission, the company will issue more than 31m shares, with Panmure Gordon Limited acting as financial adviser, nominated adviser and broker.Firms are allowed to seek external investment through the 2007 Legal Services Act. City firm Gateley was the first existing law firm to float on the stock exchange back in 2015, with London firm Gordon Dadds making the same move in August this year.last_img read more

I think with 120-day sessions we have the ability to have adequate time to consider the impacts to legislation, adequate time to consider the impacts to our budget.

Sam Kito hopes to undo the change made by voter initiative in 2006 which cut the sessions down to just 90 days.
