Use of this website
The terms and conditions of this disclaimer govern the use of this website. If you do not agree to them, please do not access or use this website.
No Legal Advice Intended
This website includes general (and not comprehensive) information about legal issues. Such materials are for informational purposes and interest only. They may not reflect the most current legal developments. These informational materials are not intended, and must not be taken, as legal or any other professional advice on any particular set of facts or circumstances. You need to contact a lawyer licensed in your jurisdiction for advice on specific legal issues and problems before acting or relying on any information or content in this website. Relying on information provided by this website without such independent advice constitutes a misuse of the information.
No Solicitor-Client Relationship is Created by Use of this Website
Neither your receipt of information from this website, nor your use of this website creates a solicitor-client relationship between us. If you use my services as an arbitrator or mediator, then our relationship is that of arbitrator and/or mediator to the parties in the dispute, and not as a solicitor to one or any of the parties. If you use my services as a client, then you will become my client only if and when you sign my client retainer agreement (if legally obliged to) that sets forth the scope of our work, the fee arrangement and other relevant matters. As a matter of policy, I not accept a new client without first investigating for possible conflicts of interests and obtaining a signed engagement letter. (I may, for example, already represent another party involved in your matter.)
No Claim of Expertise, Specialisation or Certification unless explicitly stated
This website lists areas in which I practice. In so doing, I make no claim of “expertise,” “specialisation” or “certification”, unless explicitly stated.
Limitation of Liability
I am not responsible for any loss, direct, indirect, incidental, special or consequential, including loss of business or profits whatsoever suffered as a result of you using this website, whether as a result of the contents, or because of a transmission of any virus. I take no responsibility for the currency of any of the content.
I exclude liability to the maximum extent permitted by law. Where liability cannot be excluded, it is limited and provided for by the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth).
I do not represent that we are authorised or approved to provide legal advice in the various jurisdictions where this website may be viewed. The applicable law regarding any matter arising out of this website is the law of the State of Victoria, Australia. Any disputes, in the absence of any prior mediation or arbitration proceedings, must be heard in the State or Federal Courts in the State of Victoria.
No Confidentiality of any information received from you
I do not guarantee the confidentiality of any communications sent by email or through this site. You may not use this website to provide me with confidential information about a legal matter of yours. It will not be protected by legal professional privilege. Your use of this website does not make you a client or even a prospective client. If you have confidential information that you would like to give to me, please communicate with me in person or by telephone–not by filling in any form on this website- or by sending an unsolicited email to me.
