Financial services regulation
The provision of our legal services may relate to investments (including insurance contracts). We are not authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) or the Prudential Regulation Authority of England.
We can also undertake certain activities in relation to other investments which are limited in scope and incidental to our legal services or which may reasonably be regarded as a necessary part of our legal services.
The basis for carrying out these services
-We will act as legal advisers. It is not part of our function to advise on the merits of investment transactions, to act as a broker or arranger of transactions, or to communicate invitations or inducements to engage in investment activity.
-Nothing we say or do should be construed as advice on the investment merits of acquiring or disposing of particular investments nor an invitation, recommendation or inducement to engage in investment activity, including contracts of insurance.
-We assume that any decision by you to discuss or negotiate any transaction on which we act, and any decision actually to enter into any transaction, has been or will be made by you on the basis of your own assessment of the business, financial and policy aspects of the particular transaction.
In the course of any transaction on which we act and in order to complete it, it is expected that we will communicate with you, your other advisers and the other parties to the transaction (and their advisers) in a number of ways, including, by telephone, email, fax, letter and in meetings. Amongst other things, we would expect to circulate various documents for your review and to arrange and participate in meetings and telephone calls to discuss, negotiate, agree and sign the relevant documents. We will treat your participation in such meetings, telephone calls or other forms of communication with us as a request to receive such communications.
Data protection legislation
We have put in place a global data protection policy..
We rely on EU Model Clauses (and in limited circumstances, where appropriate, consent) to allow transfer of personal data from our offices within the EEA to our non-EEA offices. Appropriate provisions are also included in contracts with third party suppliers.
Anti-money laundering laws
Under anti-money laundering laws, we may need formal evidence of your identity before we can act and may also conduct checks using external electronic databases for this purpose. We must also report suspicions of money laundering activity to our Money Laundering Officer or to the relevant external authorities, or both. We may have to stop work on a matter and may not be allowed to tell you if we make such a report. We will not be liable to you for the consequences of any such report made in good faith.
Anti-bribery and anti-corruption laws
We have in place robust anti-fraud and anti-corruption policies and procedures and we have zero tolerance of bribery or corruption by, or on behalf of, any part of the firm around the world. These policies apply to all Directors, members of staff worldwide, and to third parties providing services on our behalf.
