Companies House is responsible for company registration in Great Britain.
Company law is different from trade mark law. You cannot stop someone using a trade mark, which is the same or similar to yours, just by registering your name with Companies House.
We cannot guarantee that the name of a company accepted for registration at Companies House is acceptable by us as a registered trade mark.
The company name may not qualify as a trade mark because, for example: Continue Reading

I had the experience, knowledge, contacts and drive; however, I overlooked some very important legal aspects that almost cost me my business. In the beginning I knew very little about reporting taxes and workplace law; I now realize that understanding the basics is paramount. Continue Reading

“I have applied for over 400 graduate schemes, many training contracts. Most firms filter out applicants who haven’t been to certain law schools. Most firms only accept online applications which is an unfair way of recruiting. There are more law students than places available and I wish I had chosen an alternative career. It is hard to find work in other professions as the competition is such that they prefer applicants with certain degrees. There are people like myself who can’t get jobs and can’t afford to study anything else. It is not just because of the recession. It feels like all those years of study has been a waste of money and if you can’t get a job with a law degree from a top law school and a post graduate diploma in legal practice then there must be a lot of people who can’t get a job that they deserve.” – Jeremy King
I’ve met Jeremy in Liverpool street. He has spend the whole day holding his sign, looking for work. A bit unusual to see a person with a law degree in a situation like this. When I told him, that I’m a 2nd year law student, he smiled and said: “I don’t want to bring you down, but..my best advice would be – Don’t get into the profession.”
That inspired me to post Jeremy’s story and try to help him, as well as other law students and graduates. If you are willing to help, please don’t hesitate to contact us:
The Royal Prerogative today refers to ‘those legal attributes of the Crown which the Common law recognises at differing significantly from those of private persons.’ Both the monarch and the government need powers to execute their constitutional functions. The rule of law obliges these powers are chastised in law and the Parliament has also put some prerogatives on a constitutional basis. Traditionally, the Monarch may reign, but the Sovereign by constitutional convention came to act on governmental advice, so that prerogative powers came to be used by ministers on the Sovereign’s behalf. On the other hand, Parliament was not directly involved in that transfer of power.
To start with, the Government should have more say on the prerogative decision-making powers Continue Reading

Property is steeped in often confusing legal terminology. When looking at property it is important to know the difference between Freehold and Lease hold two different types property or land ownership.
Leasehold: A title of ownership of property (usually a flat) for a fixed term but not the land on which it stands. Possession of the property will be subject to the payment of an annual ground rent. When the lease expires, ownership of the property reverts back to the freeholder. Nearly all flats in London are leasehold. Continue Reading
