LAW

Where we refer to an individual as a ‘partner’ we are referring to an individual who is a partner, member or practitioner within an MJ Hudson legal practice with equivalent standing and qualifications. No such reference shall be construed as indicating that any shareholders, directors, employees, consultants, members, or practitioners of any MJ Hudson legal practice, or of MJ Hudson Group plc, are carrying on business in partnership with any other person or carrying on business in partnership for the purposes of the UK Partnership Act 1890.

Legal services are provided independently by each separate MJ Hudson legal practice. MJ Hudson Group plc does not provide services to clients or represent any MJ Hudson legal practice, is not responsible or liable for the acts or omissions of any MJ Hudson legal practice and does not control the exercise of their professional judgment or bind them in any way.

No MJ Hudson legal practice or any individual partner, member, or practitioner in any MJ Hudson legal practice acts as agent for, has authority to bind, or is responsible or liable for the acts or omissions of, any other MJ Hudson legal practice, any other MJ Hudson Group Business or MJ Hudson Group plc in any way.

In accordance with applicable law and regulatory requirements, no client of an MJ Hudson legal practice shall be referred, recommended, placed in contact with or introduced to an MJ Hudson Group Business, nor shall the matter of any client of an MJ Hudson legal practice be shared between that practice and another MJ Hudson Group Business, without that client’s consent. Where a client of an MJ Hudson legal practice is referred to another MJ Hudson Group Business, no cash commissions or referral fees are paid, but the businesses do operate a system of internal credits for cross-referrals which influences senior staff remuneration. In addition, where permissible by local law or regulation, revenue from all business lines (legal and non-legal) are pooled or administered by MJ Hudson Group plc (Jersey).
