Town Gate Mediation, which is a part of Phillips Solicitors, is once again supporting Family Mediation Week, which this year runs from January 21 to January 25.

It is being organised by the Family Mediators Association (FMA) to raise awareness of mediation and its benefits for separating families.

The aim is to encourage separating couples to think about family mediation as a way of helping them take control, make decisions together and build a positive future for their family.

Often mediation can help to secure a far better outcome for couples and children – it tends to be quicker, less costly and less combative than resolving issues through court.

It is estimated that only 12% of people aged under 34 have made a Will.

However, many of these so called Millennials, people born between 1981 and 1996, share a property with their partner or are married. Many will have started a family or are planning to start one.

Making a Will may be something that many have never considered, perhaps because they think this is not something they need to worry about at the moment.

Without a Will your loved one’s financial future could be at risk as the law will decide who gets what.

For example, if you are unmarried your partner is not automatically entitled to anything as unless you own your assets jointly. In the worst case this could mean your partner not being able to stay in the family home or not having enough money to bring up your children.

Our Wills and Probate team can help you make the right decisions in relation to your Will, to ensure it reflects your wishes and provides appropriately for those you care about most.

For more information call Caroline Wallis on 01256 854637 or email [email protected]

For many people 1989 was a momentous year. It was the year George H W Bush became president of the United States, the year when the Berlin Wall came down and when the Tiananmen Square pro-democracy protests took place in China.

For Phillips Solicitors it was equally momentous as that was when Theresa Dawe joined the young law firm as a receptionist, later becoming office manager.

Back then Phillips was based at Wolverton Court in London Street, in Basingstoke’s Top of the Town, where Theresa was known as the “Guardian of the Spiral Staircase.” The firm had a distinctive staircase, where Theresa acted as a gatekeeper, which led from reception to the Solicitor’s offices.

Now based at the firm’s Town Gate offices in London Street, Theresa was described affectionately as the “Queen of the Front Office,” by the firm’s Senior Director Howard Gardener at a lunch-time gathering to mark her milestone.

Howard said: “This is a fantastic anniversary. It’s excellent for us to have Theresa here for such a long time. She does a wonderful job and it is such an important job as she is often the person who gives the first impression of Phillips when people visit our offices setting the tone of firm – she does a marvellous job.”

“I’d like to thank her for her hard work and dedication to Phillips throughout the years.”

As a token of appreciation, Theresa was presented with a beautiful silver and diamond necklace by Howard.

Delighted with the gift, Theresa said: “I’ve stayed with Phillips because I like my job very much. The offices are lovely and nice to work in, with nice colleagues – what’s not to like?”

Theresa added: “I enjoy meeting such a wide range of people. There is never a dull moment and it’s great to work for such a top class law firm.”

Generous colleagues at Phillips got into the spirit of the festive season and raised £330 for Pelican Cancer Foundation.

We held a Christmas Hamper Competition where some very imaginative Christmas treats were raffled off raising £330.

Among the hampers was an Italian Job themed basket from our Commercial Property team and Christmas Games from the Residential Conveyancing team. Wills and Probate put together Winter Warmers, the Family Law team came up with Bah Hum Bug, while the Employment Law team and members of Corporate/Commercial put together their Christmas Treats hamper. Not to be out done, our Admin team came up with their Hibernation hamper.

The money raised from the raffle was given a £58 boost by colleagues paying to wear some colourful tops on Christmas Jumper Day.

These events followed on from when kind hearted colleagues recently donated 50 gifts for The Salvation Army’s Christmas Present Appeal.

All of the money from the raffle and Christmas Jumper Day will go to our charity of the Year, Pelican Cancer Foundation.

This small but wonderful charity helps fight against “below-the-belt” cancers.

From its base at The Ark Conference Centre, in the grounds of Basingstoke hospital, Pelican provides grass root funding for ground breaking research and produces and hosts training programmes.

As a result of this work Pelican has had a significant impact on 11.8% of all UK cancer patients.

To find out more about Pelican’s ground-breaking work, and to learn how you can support this fantastic charity, or to make donation please visit www.pelicancancer.org/

Well done to everyone who took part in this morning’s Festive Fun Run, in Basingstoke’s War Memorial Park.

It was good to see many people support our charity of the year, Pelican Cancer Foundation.

We had a team from Phillips take part in the event, where everyone was dressed up as Father Christmas. Among them was Phillips’ director Max Hope who ran with his wife Susannah and their beautiful daughters, along with Rosie Ellis and Helen Young.

Thankfully, the weather was kind for us unlike yesterday, helping to make the Festive Fun Run a wonderful family event. The Breeze radio station played some festive music and there was an opportunity to see some wonderful creatures from Miller’s Ark Animals.

All profits from the event will go to support Pelican’s work funding clinical research into advancing precision surgery in the treatment of bowel, liver, bladder and prostate cancers.

With Christmas just around the corner, generous colleagues at Phillips Solicitors have been busy collecting gifts to support The Salvation Army’s Christmas Present Appeal.

Trish Coutts, who works in our Residential Property team
organised the collection and was over-the-moon to see around 50 new gifts and toys being donated, including board games, books and a giant teddy.

Trish said: “Every year The Salvation Army brings a lot of joy to families in the local community and this year we are proud to be supporting their work.”

Lieutenant Rob Westwood-Payne, Commanding Officer at the Basingstoke Corps and Community Centre, in Wessex Close, said: “Thank you very much to everyone at Phillips who donated a gift or gifts."

"These will go to help local families in need throughout Basingstoke and will help to make Christmas special for people who would be struggling at this time of year.”

Despite the gloomy weather, there is a nice warm glow at our Town Gate office - our Christmas lights went up today.

Following a recent Government announcement many bereaved families will pay more in probate fees starting in April 2019.

These fees are paid when administering someone's estate after they die. They will be paid on a sliding scale depending on how much the estate is worth, rather than as a flat fee.

However, But critics have described this as a stealth tax.
Currently, families pay a flat £215, or £155 if they apply through a solicitor, on estates over £5,000.

This threshold will be increased to £50,000 in April, so estates valued between £50,000 and £300,000 will now pay a fee of £250.

Those between £300,001 and half a million pounds will pay £750, while estates between £500,001 and a million will pay £2,500 to make a grant of probate application. Estates valued at over £2 million will pay £6,000.

Our Wills and Probate team can advise you on ways to mitigate the impact of these fee increases as part of their work in reviewing your Wills and succession planning.

To find out more contact Caroline Wallis, Head of the Wills and Probate team by emailing [email protected] or by calling 01256 854637.

However, be careful of excessive cheer, as even where an office party is held at an off-site venue, it is still time spent in the course of your employment.

Congratulations to everyone who took part in Sunday’s Phillips Basingstoke Half Marathon.

This year was the fifth year that leading law firm Phillips Solicitors were the headline sponsors of the popular event.

And just like last year, we won three awards, the Fastest Corporate Team – Male, the Fastest Corporate Team – Female and the Fastest Corporate Team – Mixed.

Among those who completed the 13.1mile course was Phillips Senior Director Howard Gardener, who has ran every single half marathon since the race started in 2011.

He headed a team of 53 runners, including fellow Director Jonathan Pender and new Directors Jack Gardener and Max Hope, as well as three other colleagues, who work for the firm based in London Street.

This year Team Phillips were and still are raising funds for Pelican Cancer Foundation.

From its base at The Ark Conference Centre, in the grounds of Basingstoke hospital, Pelican provides grass root funding for ground breaking research and produces and hosts training programmes. As a result of this work Pelican has had a significant impact on 11.8% of all UK cancer patients.

Pleased with his two hour, 34 minutes, time, Howard, who was recently appointed as a Trustee of Pelican Cancer Foundation, said: “I was particularly pleased that I crossed the finish line with my good friend, consultant surgeon Brendan Moran, who is also a Trustee at Pelican.”

“Even though this year most of the route was run in reverse to its normal direction, it was still very much a challenge – those hills don’t get any easier!”

“Nevertheless, I think it was all worth the effort as we support Pelican Cancer Foundation, which does a tremendous job in helping to fight ‘below the belt cancer.’ The work Pelican does is truly amazing.”

“One thing that stayed the same was how the event brought the community together and as usual it was great to see so many people cheering and encouraging us on.”

Howard added: “I am full of admiration to all those who took part in Sunday’s event and I am especially grateful to those who ran with Team Phillips. As usual Destination Basingstoke did a first rate job in organising the event – they even arranged for the sunny weather!”

Pelican Chief Executive Sarah Crane, praised Phillips for its fantastic achievement and said it is not too late to make a donation to the Phillips fundraising website.

“It was great to see so many running on Team Phillips for Pelican Cancer Foundation,” said Sarah.

“We are incredibly grateful for all their efforts. The money raised will go towards a new research project looking at improving the recovery rate of patients with advanced Bowel Cancer.”

So far more than £1,500 has been raised for via the firms fundraising page which can be found by visiting https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/Team/Phillips2018
