However, neither Lexwork International nor any member firm has any control over the services provided by any other member law firm, and therefore, has no responsibility for their acts.
Reviewing the information on this site does not constitute an attorney client relationship between you and Lexwork or any of its Member Firms. Prior to establishing an attorney-client relationship, a Lexwork Member Firm will need to discuss your specific legal situation with you, complete a conflict check and discuss and agree upon the terms of legal representation. Please do not send any confidential information to any Lexwork Member Firm until such time as an attorney-client relationship has been established through a written engagement letter.
While we invite you to contact Lexwork or a Lexwork Member Firm, please note that contacting via email does not create an attorney-client relationship, unless you are accepted as a client of a specific Lexwork Member Firm and has been established through a written engagement letter.
The information you obtain on this site is not, nor is it intended to be, legal advice. You should consult an attorney for individual advice regarding your own situation.
