Reliance on Information Posted

The information and content appearing on this Website are for informational purposes only and are not legal advice, do not in all cases reflect the opinions of HBS or its attorneys, and are not guaranteed to be complete, correct or up-to-date. The use of or access to this information and content does not constitute or create an attorney-client relationship. You should contact your own attorney to obtain advice with respect to any particular issue or problem. It is important that no conflict of interest be created between you and any of our current or past clients. Therefore, under no circumstance should you provide us with information pertaining to a matter without first speaking to one of our attorneys and receiving confirmation that the appropriate conflict checks have been cleared and that the firm is otherwise able to accept the engagement. You should not send any information to us until after you have received an engagement letter from us and a formal attorney-client relationship has been established, unless we otherwise specifically request such information. If you communicate with us through this Website, by email, or otherwise, concerning a legal matter for which we do not already represent you, your communication may not be protected as privileged or confidential.

Advertising

Pursuant to applicable Rules of Professional Conduct, this Website may constitute advertising. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome.

HBS expressly disclaims all liability in respect to actions taken or not taken based on any or all the contents of this Site.

Licensure of Attorneys
