DISCLOSURE

We will only provide legal services if we are retained by you as described in a costs agreement between us which includes disclosure pursuant to the Legal Profession Uniform Law (NSW) (Uniform Law). Our costs agreement will set out the scope of the legal services to be provided to you by an Australian legal practitioner (Legal Services). It will also identify the non-legal services to be provided and indicate the status and qualifications of those who are to provide such non-legal services.

When we provide Services without a costs agreement between us we provide the Services as non-legal services (Non-Legal Services). We provide the Non-Legal Services as general information in summary form on legal and other topics, current at the time of first publication. You should obtain specific legal or other professional advice before relying on the Non-Legal Services. The Non-Legal Services may be provided by an Australian legal practitioner, by a paralegal, clerk, student-at-law or by their assistants.

The Uniform Law and the Legal Profession Uniform General Rules 2015 apply to the provision of legal services but do not apply to the provision of non-legal services.

You acknowledge and agree (as a binding contractual agreement between you and us) that the Non-Legal Services you receive from us are non-legal services and are only intended to provide you with general information in summary form on legal and other topics, that it does not constitute legal services or other advice and will not be relied upon as such.
