Terms & Conditions
This site is owned and maintained by Sedgwick LLP (“Sedgwick”).
The content on this site is offered only as a public service to the web community and does not constitute solicitation or provision of legal advice. This site should not be used as a substitute for obtaining legal advice from an attorney licensed or authorized to practice in your jurisdiction. You should always consult a suitably qualified attorney regarding any specific legal problem or matter. The comments and opinions expressed on this site are of the individual author and may not reflect the opinions of the firm or any individual attorney.
Nothing on this site is intended to create an attorney-client relationship and nothing posted constitutes legal advice. Neither the transmission of the information contained on this site nor your use of the information or communication with Sedgwick creates an attorney-client relationship between you and Sedgwick. No information communicated to Sedgwick through this site will be protected by either the attorney-client privilege or the work product doctrine.
If you choose to email anyone through this site, do not include any confidential, secret or otherwise sensitive information concerning any potential or actual legal matter in the email transmission. Unsolicited emails do not create an attorney-client relationship and confidential or secret information included in such emails cannot be protected from disclosure. The owners of and contributors to this site have no duty to keep confidential any information you provide them.
An attorney-client relationship can only be created by the mutual assent of both parties and only after a consultation. Sedgwick cannot agree to be retained as counsel until a conflict-of-interest check is completed and a written engagement and fee agreement provided by Sedgwick is signed by you and a Sedgwick attorney.
Some jurisdictions may have laws and regulations that differ substantially from one another. Sedgwick does not through this site seek to represent anyone in a jurisdiction where this site may fail to comply with the laws and ethical rules of that jurisdiction.
The information contained on this website may be considered “Attorney Advertising” in some jurisdictions. The hiring of an attorney is an important decision, and should not be based solely on information obtained from advertising content. This site may contain descriptions of our legal experience and outcomes of certain prior matters. However, each legal matter is composed of unique issues and our descriptions are not intended to promise future results. The outcome of your case may vary from that of any other representation undertaken by the firm, and any discussion of prior results on this website does not guarantee a similar outcome.
This website does not provide legal advice of any kind, and we cannot guarantee that the information is accurate, complete or up-to-date. Given the nature of and speed with which online communications are developed, the opinions and thoughts posted to this site are of a casual nature and may change after further reflection. While we intend to make every attempt to keep the information on this site current, the owners of and contributors to this site make no claims, promises or guarantees about the accuracy, completeness or adequacy of the information contained in or linked to from this site.
Since legal advice must be tailored to the specific circumstances of each case, and laws are constantly changing, nothing on this site should be used as a substitute for the advice of competent legal counsel. The authors and Sedgwick assume no responsibility to any person who relies on information contained on this site and disclaim all liability in respect to such information. You should not act upon information in this website without seeking professional counsel from an attorney admitted or authorized to practice in your jurisdiction.
