Like most organisations, we have specific terms of business. As solicitors there are also a number of special regulations affecting us which have to be covered in these terms, and they may seem complex. Our contract with you is contained in these Terms of Business ("Terms"), and our Engagement Letter to you. Please consider these carefully, and if you have any queries ask us about them as soon as possible. The Engagement Letter contains specific information about the work we are handling for you.
We are a limited liability partnership (LLP) registered under the Limited Liability Partnerships Act 2000 (Registered Number OC 361417). In these Terms or in our letters, documents or literature or orally any reference to this "firm" or "practice" is to the LLP, and we use the word “partner” to refer to a member of the LLP, or an employee or consultant who is a lawyer with equivalent standing and qualifications. These words do not indicate that we practice in an unlimited partnership.
The General Notes below do not form part of our contract with you, but we hope that they will provide you with useful explanations and information.
