Helping Victims find Funding 

As part of our work we support victims legally and in terms of practical support. At present there is a unique Funding Opportunity for Services for Victims and Survivors. We hope to see much of the good work in the sector recognised and further supported. The Victims and Survivors Service recently announcedthat two funding programmes are now open for applications. The closing date for both programmes is 12.00pm 04th January 2017, so we would urge groups to act now.  1. The VICTIMS SUPPORT ...

Slow Growth better than no Growth 

Slow growth is better than no growth but the uncertainty around Brexit still leads to the crisis in confidence affecting the economy. Look to LEXXER in these times of uncertainty for the one asset which grows in value - knowledge.

High Drama at the High Court

LEXXER Law has been following proceedings in the High Court carefully due to the wide reaching consequences of the case. Today it has ruled that the Government does not have power to trigger Article 50 without parliamentary approval and a vote from MPs. This Public Law case is a prime example of how strategic litigation can challenge and potentially frustrate a primary government policy and indeed the national referendum. It is a powerful example of the power of litigation, and we are...
