Gordon Dadds has advised on the sale of shares of the Electoral Reform Services Limited to Civica UK Limited, part of the Civica Group. Electoral Reform Services with its subsidiaries comprises the ERS Group, the UK’s market-leading provider of software and services for election management, membership engagement, democracy and governance systems. Electoral Reform Services is the foremost provider of end-to-end ballot, election and voting services, having originally grown out of the Electoral Reform Society which was established in 1884.



The UK government recently announced that it will increase the cost of applying for probate (the process by which the estate of a deceased person is administered) from the current, fixed figure of £155 up to an eye watering £6,000.

What are intercreditor agreements?

Intercreditor agreements govern the relationship between the various lenders with exposure to a borrower group. They are often heavily negotiated documents, especially as between the senior and mezzanine lenders. Although borrowers will usually be less involved in such negotiations (given that it concerns the rights and obligations that apply as between competing lenders), borrowers will want to ensure that they do not assume any obligations beyond those that they have agreed to assume under the senior and mezzanine finance documents.
