Superlawyer saves the day

Posted in nezyezlq on September 30th, 2020

first_imgClients may have a habit of thinking their business must be dealt with as a matter of life and death but, just occasionally, they do have a point. A client dinner attended by quick-thinking solicitor Richard Taylor, an intellectual property partner at DLA Piper, is a prime example of how solicitors can also be action heros. Taylor informs us that, while at a dinner hosted by client The Coal Authority, in the plush surroundings of the Manchester Midland Hotel, one of the executives at his table began to choke. As Taylor describes it: ‘[He] can’t speak, can’t breathe, but starts turning purple, eyes popping, thumping [the] table for attention. Cue general mayhem and cries for an ambulance – but not enough time. The client starts for the door and bursts out of the dining room. Just as he is collapsing to his knees – tada! – your friendly neighbourhood solicitor (me) appears behind and calmly executes the Heimlich Manoeuvre – reach around the choking person, clasp your fists into their diaphragm, and pull up hard, to use the residue of air in the lungs to blow out the blockage. The client is jerked into the air (I am rather taller than him) – and the blockage flies out of his throat and across the corridor. The client breathes. Cue applause, back slapping and general appreciation of noble solicitor.’ Indeed. As the Law Society’s slogan goes, ‘my hero, my solicitor’. But Obiter suspects Taylor may not be the only lawyer out there to have saved a client’s life in the literal sense. Anyone with a similar tale of courage should contact read more

Money laundering awareness campaign kicks off

Posted in nezyezlq on September 28th, 2020

first_imgA joint campaign by the Home Office and organisations including the Law Society which aims to raise professionals’ awareness of the warning signs of money laundering goes live today. ‘Flag it up’ was developed by the Accountancy Affinity Group, the Law Society and Solicitors Regulation Authority to help accountants and solicitors spot the ‘red flags’ which could indicate criminal activity.Mike Penning, minister for policing, crime, criminal justice and victims, said: ‘This new campaign will help to raise awareness and advise those in the legal and accountancy industries how to identify and report suspected criminality that, if not dealt with, can seriously impact their careers and reputations.’The campaign runs until March 2016. It will publish case studies giving examples of how solicitors have unwittingly become involved in money laundering, a spokesperson said. The Home Office said the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 gives law enforcement agencies the powers to recover criminal assets and freeze suspicious funds, while the Serious Crime Act 2015 made it a criminal offence to participate in the activities of an organised crime group.last_img read more

8 endangered black rhinos die in Kenya in botched relocation

Posted in nezyezlq on September 26th, 2020

first_imgEight critically endangered black rhinos have died in Kenya while being transported by the state wildlife service between two national parks, Tourism Minister Najib Balala said on Friday in a statement.“Disciplinary action will definitely be taken” if an investigation into the deaths indicates negligence by agency staff, the wildlife ministry said.The rhinos, who are part of a critically endangered species, died at Tsavo East National Park.n initial investigation by Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) showed the rhinos died of salt poisoning after drinking water at their new habitat, the statement said, adding that transports of rhinos are being stopped.The rhinos were among 14 KWS began moving last month from the capital Nairobi to Tsavo East.Kenya had a rhino population of 1,258 in 2017 of which 745 are black rhinos, 510 are southern white rhinos and three were northern white rhinos, having grown from less than 400 rhinos in the 1980s. The white rhino is a near threatened species.According to WWF, black rhino populations declined dramatically in the 20th century, mostly at the hands of European hunters and settlers. Between 1960 and 1995 numbers dropped by 98 percent, to fewer than 2,500.Since then the species has rebounded, although it remains extremely threatened. In addition to poaching the animals also face habitat loss.African Parks, a Johannesburg-based conservation group, said earlier this year that there are fewer than 25,000 rhinos in the African wild, of which about 20 percent are black rhinos and the rest white rhinos.In another major setback for conservation, the last remaining male northern white rhino on the planet died in March in Kenya, leaving conservationists struggling to save that sub-species using in vitro fertilization.Related Kenya Anti-Obesity Campaign Endangered black rhinos die in Kenya reservecenter_img Kenya Hosts UNEP Summit last_img read more
