No Attorney-Client Relationship

Neither the Site nor the use of Site Content creates an attorney-client relationship.  

The Site Content is for informational purposes only to permit you to learn more about the Firm, its services and the experience of its attorneys.  The Site Content may not be current and is subject to change without notice.  The Site Content is not legal advice and shall not be relied on as such.  Each legal problem depends on its particular facts, and different jurisdictions have different laws and regulations. Because of these differences, you should not act or rely on any Site Content without seeking the advice of a competent attorney licensed to practice law in your jurisdiction.

This Site is not intended as advertising or solicitation in any jurisdiction where the Site would be so characterized and fail to comply with all applicable laws and ethical rules of that jurisdiction.   The Firm does not seek to represent anyone based solely upon a visit to this Site or upon advertising, or where to do so would not comply with applicable local laws and rules.

Email is provided as a convenience in communicating with the attorneys at the Firm. Contact by Email does not create an attorney-client relationship. Please remember that E-mail is not secure and messages sent to the Firm or any of its employees or attorneys should not contain sensitive or confidential information.

These links are provided to aid in the search for relevant legal and other information of interest and are not intended to state or imply that the Firm is affiliated or associated with, endorses, sponsors, or is legally authorized to use any trade name, trademark, logo or copyright.

No Warranty or Liability

The Site and Site Content are provided “as is” without representation or warranty of any kind — as to suitability, reliability, applicability, merchantability, fitness, noninfringement, result, outcome or any other matter.  The Firm does not represent or warrant that the Site or Site Content is or will be always up-to-date, complete, or accurate.  Any representation or warranty that might be otherwise implied is expressly disclaimed.

You agree that the Firm and its attorneys are not liable to you or others, in any way or for any damages of any kind or under any theory, arising from the Site, or your access to or use of or reliance on Site Content, including without limitation, liability or damages under contract or tort theories or any damages caused by viruses contained within electronic files of the Site or any linked website, regardless of prior notice to us.

Indemnification

To the extent permitted by law, you agree to indemnify, defend and hold the Firm and its partners, members, associates, agents, attorneys, employees, subcontractors, successors, assigns and affiliates (collectively, “Affiliated Parties”) harmless from any liability, loss, claim and expense related to your violation of this Agreement; violation of applicable law or third‑party rights (including, without limitation, patent, trademark, copyright, trade secret or other intellectual property rights); or willful misconduct or use of the Site or Site Content.

Copyright and Intellectual Property Rights

Unless otherwise noted, all materials, including but not limited to images, illustrations, designs, icons, photographs, video clips, software, and written and other materials that are part of the Site or any other Firm website are protected under copyright laws and are the trademarks, trade dress and/or other intellectual properties owned, controlled or licensed by the Firm.  No part of these materials may otherwise be copied, reproduced, stored, republished, uploaded, posted, transmitted, or distributed in any form or by any means, electronic or mechanical, now known or hereafter invented, without the prior written permission from the Firm.

Privacy and Marketing

The Firm’s privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”), as it may change from time to time, is a part of this Agreement.  You may view the Privacy Policy by clicking here.

Governing Law; Dispute Resolution

You agree that (i) the Site shall be deemed solely based in England and Wales and (ii) the Site shall be deemed a passive one that does not give rise to personal jurisdiction over the Firm in jurisdictions other than England and Wales.  This Agreement shall be governed by English law, without respect to its conflict of laws principles. The application of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods is expressly excluded. You agree that the English law, excluding its conflict of laws rules, shall exclusively govern any dispute relating to this Agreement. We both agree that all of these claims can only be litigated in the English courts, and we each agree to personal jurisdiction in those courts.  The parties specifically exclude from application to this Agreement the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods and the Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act.

Miscellaneous

To the extent permitted by law, any cause of action by you with respect to the Site or Site Content must be instituted within one (1) year after the cause of action arose or be forever waived and barred. All actions shall be subject to the limitations set forth in this Agreement. The language in this Agreement shall be interpreted strictly for the Firm. Any rule of construction to the effect that ambiguities are to be resolved against the drafting party shall not apply in interpreting this Agreement. The headings in this Agreement are included for convenience only and shall neither affect the construction or interpretation of any provision of this Agreement nor affect any of the rights or obligations of the parties to this Agreement. Should any part of this Agreement be held invalid or unenforceable, that portion shall be construed as much as possibly consistent with applicable law and the remaining portions shall remain in full force and effect. To the extent that anything in or associated with the Site or its content are in conflict or inconsistent with this Agreement, this Agreement shall take precedence. The Firm’s failure to enforce any provision of this Agreement shall not be deemed a waiver of such provision nor of the right to enforce such provision. The Firm’s rights under this Agreement shall survive any termination of this Agreement.  This Agreement is subject to amendment by the Firm in its sole discretion at any time, and all such amendments shall be effective immediately.  If you do not agree to any amendment, you will stop using the Site. Otherwise, your continued use of the Site constitutes your acceptance of such amendment.
