Like other Jersey legal firms, we are regulated by the Jersey Law Society and, since 2008, the Jersey Financial Services Commission in respect of the Anti Money Laundering legislation.
It is therefore our duty, when taking on new clients, to take steps to know them to a sufficient extent to comply with the legal requirements in force, but also to establish a good trusting relationship with our clients.
That is why, when instructing us, you will be required to complete a questionnaire and provide certain documentation, which may vary according to each client’s circumstances but is generally proof of identity and address.
You will also be asked to sign a copy of our terms of service, which sets out the contract between us. A copy of our terms of service can be viewed upon request.
Except in cases of urgency, we cannot normally undertake work, beyond taking instructions, until the above documents are returned to us, duly completed and signed.
