Points-based system for businesses

  • Tier 2 (General) visas - for skilled workers who have received a graduate level job offer from a UK employer Information on the skills charge Subject to parliamentary approval, legislation expected to come into force on 6 April 2017 means that Employers may be required to pay the Immigration Skills Charge where they sponsor a worker from outside the European Economic Area (EEA).
  • Tier 2 (Intra-Company Transfer) visas - for employees of multinational companies that have been transferred by their overseas employer to a UK branch of the organisation, either on a long-term basis or for frequent short visits.
  • The skills charge will apply to a sponsor of a Tier 2 worker assigned a certificate of sponsorship in the 'General' or "Intra-company Transfer" route and who will be applying from:
  • outside the UK for a visa
  • inside the UK to switch to this visa from another
  • inside the UK to extend their existing visa The skills charge does not apply if you are sponsoring:
  • a non-EEA national who was sponsored in Tier 2 before 6 April 2017 and is applying from inside the UK to extend their Tier 2 stay with either the same sponsor or a different sponsor
  • a Tier 2 (Intra-company Transfer) Graduate Trainee
  • a worker to do a specified PhD level occupation
  • a Tier 4 student visa holder in the UK switching to a Tier 2 (General) visa.

You do not have to pay the skills charge for the worker's family members ('dependants'). The skills charge will be €1000 per year for medium or large sponsors and €364 per year for small or charitable sponsors.

It will be payable upfront and for the total period of time covered by the certificate of sponsorship.

Mediators help you to find solutions to the issues that you face on the breakdown of your relationship in a safe and supported environment.

In mediation we will refer you to one of our experienced mediators who will sit with you and your partner and will help you to identify and try and reach agreement on the issues that you cannot agree on.

A mediator is not a judge and will not impose any decisions on you. The mediator, using their experience will guide you and your partner to explore the options and find solutions that work for your unique circumstances and those of any children that you have.

The mediator is a neutral third party and will facilitate conversations between you that you may be finding difficult to have following the breakdown of your relationship.

The main benefits of mediation are:-

  • Reduces conflict
  • You keep control of the process and of any decisions
  • Meetings take place at a time of your convenience
  • It focuses on the needs of your children
  • Ensures confidentiality
  • Quicker, less stressful and dramatically cheaper than court

You should seek legal advice as soon as you can if:

  • you are at risk of having nowhere to live
  • you are at risk of domestic violence or abuse
  • your ex-partner is not giving you enough access to your children
  • you are in a vulnerable financial position compared with your ex-partner
  • you are unsure what a fair settlement between you would look like
  • you have a lot of assets
  • you got married abroad, or you, your ex-partner or your children have non-UK nationality

We listen to our clients, understand their needs and we believe that it is this simple approach that ensures we forge strong and close relationships with our clients that are built on trust.

Commercial Property Conveyancing

service 1

Orchid Solicitors have a specialized team that adopts a practical and sensible approach to commercial property conveyancing. Purchasing or selling a commercial property can seem a daunting task, but using the services of a professional commercial property solicitor can help to make it easier.

Our commercial conveyancing services can guide you through the leasehold transaction process, assisting with all aspects of commercial property conveyancing and acting for both landlords and tenants. It is essential to get good advice at the commencement of the process.

Some of the issues we can help you with are:

Granting and taking leases

When you take a commercial property lease, you need to make sure you know what you're signing up for. As part of our commercial conveyancing service, we can help explain the small print so there are no unexpected surprises during your lease.

International Investment law and Arbitration

The investors (national of the Home State) around the world invest in different jurisdictions for the purpose of making profit. Either at the outset of investment or during the investment, the investor may be subjected to unfair,(fair and equitable treatment), arbitrary or discriminatory treatment or in some cases the investor's investmentmay be expropriated by the host state (host state is where the investor have invested their investment and the state in breach of International Investment Law)

Investors trust lawyers at Orchid Solicitors have the specialist knowledge and experience to provide the investor with the necessary legal advice and help the investor take the necessary course of action in achieving their objective.
In bringing a claim against the host state (the state in breach of international Investment Law) the investor may rely on Concessionary agreement between the investor and the host state (or a subdivision or an agency of the host state), Bilateral Investment Treaty (BIT) between the host state and the investor's home state or other Bilateral Investment Treaty (BIT) between the host state and a third party state, through Most Favoured Nation Treatment (MFN Clause), Multilateral Treaties such as Energy Charter Treaty (ECT) or North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA. ) or any other free Trade Agreement

Wills and Probate Services

service 1

Orchid Solicitors have a wealth of experience when it comes to dealing with all issues relating to Wills, Probate and Estate Administration matters.

Many people don't know what happens upon death when a Will is not made. Our Wills and Probate Solicitors can help you with all aspects of making a Will and help you with Estate Administration issues.

With more than 60% of the population in the UK dying intestate (without having made a Will) it is now more than ever necessary for you to protect family wealth and limit adverse tax implications both in the UK and elsewhere.

It is important to note without a will:

  • A surviving spouse will not necessarily inherit everything
  • An unmarried partner has no automatic entitlement
  • The family home may have to be sold
  • Children may be unintentionally disinherited

Our specialist team of lawyers can help you protect your interests and give you the peace of mind knowing your estate is taken care of when you pass away.

Wills including Islamic Wills:

Having a will in place is tremendously important and should not be taken lightly. A will is a legal document in which your expressed wishes can be implemented as to how you want your assets to be distributed upon death. By instructing a professional to draft your will, you can have a peace of mind that it will be free from any errors so as to avoid any challenges in the future due to invalidity which may go as far as lengthy litigation. We also have experience in preparing Islamic Wills, Shariah compliant, should the Muslim community require it.

The Probate and Administration of Estate

When someone dies there are a number of important tasks that need to be completed.

If the person died leaving a valid will, then the named executors take on this responsibility. In the absence of a valid will, the person is said to have died "Intestate" and the Intestacy Rules determine who can be appointed as the Administrators of the estate.

The role of executor or administrator can be a tedious one. The deceased's estate may involve valuable or complex matters and an executor or administrator is personally liable for administering the estate correctly.

An executor or administrator can instruct a solicitor of their choice to assist them with the administration of the deceased's estate and the legal fees are settled by the estat

There are various procedural stages that need to be carried out after identifying all of the deceased's assets (property, investments and possessions) and all of their liabilities (debts ranging from loans to utility bills), in order to determine the value of their estate before the distribution of the deceased's estate.

  • Paying Inheritance Tax to HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) where applicable, and submitting the correct Inheritance Tax return (required whether or not there is tax due), and applying to the Probate Registry for the Grant of Representation, being a document confirming the legal authority to administer the estate.
  • After the Grant of Representation has been issued by the Probate Registry, liquidating (selling) the deceased's assets, settling their liabilities, paying the final estate administration expenses and accounting to HMRC for any further Inheritance Tax, any Income Tax or Capital Gains Tax due to or from the estate.
  • Preparing estate accounts documenting all payments into and out of the Estate, and showing the balance left for distribution to the beneficiaries. Sending the estate accounts to the Personal Representatives (such as the Executor in the Will) for approval.
  • Providing there are no challenges to the estate or other complicating factors preventing distribution at this stage, the final phase will involve transferring any assets that the beneficiaries wish to retain, and distributing the balance of the estate funds.

Our specialist team will ensure that our service to your will

  • give you peace of mind by putting your affairs in order
  • avoid unnecessary distress for your family and friends
  • ensure your dependants are properly provided for
  • ensure only your chosen family or friends benefit from your estate
  • avoid unnecessary tax being paid
  • maximise financial benefits from your income and savings
  • preserve your wealth

Powers of Attorney and the Court of Protection

Our specialist team can draft powers of attorney whether they relate to health related issues or finances. We can register the power of attorney with the Office of the Public Guardian. We also make applications to the Court of Protection in order to protect and safeguard vulnerable people who lack the mental capacity to make decisions for themselves. These decisions may relate to the person's finances or their health and welfare.

Only a lasting power of attorney (LPA) will remain valid if your loved one becomes incapacitated. The lasting power of attorney will allow your older family member to appoint you or another trusted person to make decisions on his or her behalf such as health care decisions, paying bills and managing assets.

Powers of attorney can also designate power generally, if the older person would like someone to take over all aspects of his or her financial affairs while he or she has capacity.

Commercial Litigation Services

service 1

We at Orchid Solicitors can assist in the resolution of disputes of all kinds in the most effective way. We initially encourage negotiation as a cost effective method to settle the dispute amicably. We promote this approach wherever possible, aiming to resolve clients' problems without recourse to litigation.

We always strive to resolve issues through negotiation or alternative dispute resolution before taking the matter to court.

Our commercial litigation solicitors have considerable expertise in Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) and Mediation and they are willing to utilise these methods to resolve disputes to your satisfaction.

Criminal Law

service 1

Orchid Solicitors is committed to excellence in everything we do whether giving advice before an interview at the police station or providing representation at court.

It is your legal right to a have a solicitor free of charge while you are at the police station. You can use your own solicitor or ask for a duty solicitor. It doesn't matter how much money you have as this service is not means tested - it's free for everyone.

Being accused of a criminal offence can be a extremely daunting and distressing experience. This may have far reaching consequences on you and your family. You risk losing your good character and reputation, your family, your career and even your liberty.

It is vital to obtain specialist representation at the earliest possible stage, as advice provided and decisions taken then, could have a significant bearing on what happens next.

Putting the best team in place and taking immediate proactive steps, such as gathering evidence, interviewing witnesses, obtaining CCTV and instructing experts, to defend the allegations and making representations to the prosecution in advance of their decision to charge, could potentially affect the decision to prosecute.

Our service is diplomatic, confidential and adapted to protecting your reputation whatever the situation.

If you are charged, you will be asked to appear before a magistrates' court. This is where less serious offences (for example, minor criminal damage, or speeding offences) are tried. There is no jury at a magistrates' court.

If your case is more serious or complex, or you have requested trial by jury, your case could be sent to a crown court.

Our specialist solicitor will advise you about your options to plead guilty or not guilty to the charge. They will advise you about the likely sentence you may face if you plead, or are found, guilty.

If you are pleading not guilty, our specialist solicitor will assist you to understand the legal procedures and help you prepare your side of the case, so that you can have a fair trial. You will be assisted to understand the evidence that the police and prosecution are presenting against you, and will gather any evidence that supports your case.

We can help by contacting witnesses or seeking expert reports to challenge the evidence against you. We have a good network of top criminal barristers - who will present your case in the court.

If you plead or are found guilty, we can help you by gathering and presenting material to the court pointing out any mitigating circumstances and explanations to persuade the court to reduce sentences and fines.
