We maintain professional indemnity insurance in accordance with the mandatory requirements of the Solicitors Regulation Authority. Our professional indemnity insurer is AXIS Specialty Europe SE.
The applicable law, unless otherwise agreed, is English law, with the English Courts having exclusive jurisdiction in relation to any claim, dispute or difference concerning the service and any matter arising from it.
As key professionals, we facilitate transactions on behalf of many different clients and in that capacity we must act at all times with integrity, uphold the law and not engage in criminal activity. It is well known that criminals attempt to use law firms as a cover for their activities and as a result we are required by law to be diligent.
Of particular relevance in this regard are the following:
- The Money Laundering Regulations 2007 impose a legal obligation on us to verify the identity of all our clients, to get to know them and to understand the reasoning behind the instructions they give
- The Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 establishes several offences relating to the laundering of money, failing to report suspected money laundering and tipping off where money laundering is suspected
- The Terrorism Act 2000 establishes several offences relating to the engagement in or facilitating terrorism as well as possessing funds for terrorist purposes
Further, we do not tolerate corruption (including bribery) in any form either within our business or in those we do business with. The firm has in place an Anti-Corruption and Bribery Policy that includes procedures for the prevention of corrupt practices.
We pride ourselves on the level of service we provide to our clients. Sometimes things go wrong and in that unlikely event we have a Written Complaints Procedure to ensure that complaints are dealt with promptly, fairly and effectively. A copy of our Written Complaints Procedure can be supplied on request.
