Privacy Policy

Please see our Privacy Policy

Conflicts of Interest Policy

Conflict of interest is an essential area of policy for a firm of lawyers having a broad base of clients. Accordingly, we operate a comprehensive regime to ensure, insofar as possible, any potential conflicts of interest are identified and resolved at the earliest opportunity. This involves both a database search of existing clients, current matters and other relevant information held by Horizon Law, and where appropriate, a targeted enquiry.

We are also sensitive to situations which, although in legal terms may not create a conflict of interest, are seen by clients to be a “commercial” conflict and we are willing to discuss with clients any particular concerns in this respect.

Bribery and Corruption

Horizon Law is committed to conducting business according to high standards of business integrity. We have a zero-tolerance policy in respect of bribery and corruption. We require those with whom we have business relationships to have and maintain a like policy and appropriate procedures for combating bribery and corruption.

This Privacy Policy together with our Terms of Use and our Terms of Business (if applicable) sets out the basis on which we will process any personal information that Horizon Law collects from you or that you provide to us.
