Panoptic Legal Disclosures
Panoptic Legal Ltd is a legal consultancy firm, and not a regulated law firm. This is because Panoptic Legal Ltd provides services that are not ‘reserved legal activities matters’, as defined in section 12 of the Legal Services Act 2007. However, every member of staff providing legal consultancy services to you is a qualified solicitor in his or her own right, and each solicitor s authorised and regulated by an appropriate regulator in the jurisdiction in which he or she is qualified.
By using our site, reviewing content or otherwise interacting with us online, you understand and acknowledge that there is no solicitor-client relationship created. You also understand and acknowledge that no solicitor-client relationship is created by the mere purchase of online products. Solicitor-client relationships can only be formed after you have received our terms of service, and we have agreed to act for you for specific legal services.
The site cannot provide individual legal advice, opinions or recommendations. You should not act or refrain from acting on the basis of information included on our site or otherwise contained in our content, without first consulting us or another solicitor that is licensed in the relevant jurisdiction.
