The nation is at fever pitch with the World Cup in Russia kicking off today. Up and down the country flags are appearing and people are preparing for a month full of football.
But how do you juggle watching all of the games and work? With this year’s World cup being hosted in Russia the different time zones mean some games are kicking off as early as 11am. England’s matches are luckily all evening games or at the weekend, but this doesn’t account for fans supporting a different country.
A LAW firm which has branches across Leicestershire has raised more than £6,000 for charity this year after taking part in a will-writing campaign which asks solicitors to write wills for local people and instead, ask only for a voluntary donation. Lawson-West Solicitors Ltd, which has branches in Leicester on Meridian Business Park, Market Harborough and Wigston have taken part in the annual Will Aid scheme and raised an impressive £6,120 in the month-long fundraiser.
Business partnerships are regulated under a little known law from 1890 – The Partnership Act. Under the Act a ‘partnership’ is formed when two or more people join together in business to share a profit. This does not include LLPs (Limited Liability Partnerships) or Limited Partnerships. This can be established by an oral contract or simply by conduct. It is possible, therefore, to enter into a partnership as defined by this act without meaning to. These inadvertent partnerships are referred to as ‘Partnerships at Will’ and are governed by the Partnership Act 1890.
