What Happens if You Die Without Making a Will?

What Happens if You Die Without Making a Will? If you are married or in a civil partnership… If you die without making a will, the Government decides who will inherit your assets. Very strict legal rules (known as the intestacy rules) come into effect. These rules set out how your estate will be distributed. For example, if you die leaving your spouse or civil partner, based on those strict rules, they will not automatically receive your assets. They will…

Life Interest Trusts

The Section 25 Notice and What This Means for Commercial Landlords and Tenants

Here we look at Landlord’s section 25 notice to terminate a commercial lease. Before reading on, it is worth checking to make sure that your lease is not excluded from this applying, and that your lease is a tenancy as defined by the 1954 Act (the “Act”). Landlords often exclude leases from these provisions so that tenants don’t have as much protection. We’ll look at tenancies a little later.   The Section 25 notice   If a landlord wishes to end a commercial lease…

Top 7 Legal Writing Tips for Paralegals   Writing is an important tool for all paralegals. The power of words can be used to advocate, inform, persuade, and instruct.

Therefore, it becomes necessary for a paralegal to have excellent writing skills. Though legal writing or drafting takes time and practise…

Personal Injury Trusts

Personal Injury Trusts

With thousands of personal injury claims made a year, we look at the importance of Personal Injury Trusts for those not only on means-tested benefits, but when planning for future care costs and benefit claims.

“It’s not ‘He Said She Said’ if I’ve got proof!”: Recording conversations at work and its legality

“It’s not ‘He Said She Said’ if I’ve got proof!”: Recording conversations at work and its legality.   In employment law issues, it can be said that employees, especially those who end up as litigants-in-person before the Employment Appeals Tribunals (EAT) are often found to be the weaker party in the case.  This is due to the fact of the lack of legal knowledge in terms of procedure and black letter law when filing a claim. The challenge in a hearing becomes…

Guardianship

Guardianship – ensuring your children are placed with those you trust through your Will

Whilst watching the BBC’s latest underwater thriller ‘Vigil’ an important point raised its head, which would have been missed by many, or at most a tear would have been shed for the main character’s heartbreak.     In case you missed it (and this is not a spoiler alert), the main character lost her partner of many years, which was sad in itself, however, at that point she also lost the daughter she had raised and called her own.  The…

Clients About Us

working together to serve your needs

I reached out to Tiger Law as they came recommended from a friend. As a start-up I didn’t know what I needed or what my requirements were. Damion Way was assigned to me and couldn’t be more helpful. He spent time talking to me understanding what I wanted to accomplish and helped guide me. He went the extra mile with advice for me and produced everything I needed to get my business started to an exceptional standard giving me peace of mind knowing I’m fully legal and compliant. His sector knowledge and attention to detail was second to none and I know I won’t be going anywhere else. Couldn’t recommend Tiger Law more.

Stephen Jenner, Director, StepTech Solutions Ltd ,

I would highly recommend Damion for providing me with expert services in writing our Terms & Conditions, Privacy Policy and other documents to assist my software platform to go live. A very professional individual at really competitive prices. Thanks for giving me professional input and suggestions for my website, really helpful.

Naveen Garg, Director, TM Techsoft Ltd / “Town Market” app ,

We worked with Damion and the team at Tiger Law to get our new business set up with the essential contracts we needed and were extremely pleased with the service and products they delivered. Everything was explained simply and thoroughly and Damion was very quick to turn everything around. We needed a few rounds of amends to meet our specific needs, but nothing was ever too much trouble and the whole process ran very smoothly. The team were friendly, knowledgeable and efficient and I would recommend Tiger Law to anyone looking for legal support.
