We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in any part of our business and supply chain. Our commitment reflects our values of being a responsible business which operates ethically and with integrity.
Our supply chains relate to our business as a law firm. These supply chains, which are reviewed regularly, include supplying personnel, goods and services to support the legal services we provide to our clients. We have considered these supply chains and concluded that they are low risk in relation to slavery or human trafficking both in our own business and with regard to our external supply chain. To the extent that there is any risk, it is most likely to take place in connection with outsourced business services such as cleaning, catering, and security.
We educate relevant members of staff to recognize the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our business and supply chains and to assess the human rights and labor performance of suppliers. Our policies and procedures are made available to all staff via the firm's Employee Manual, which establishes and describes the ethical standards we expect everyone working for the firm to meet.
This statement is made in accordance with section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes the firm's modern slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year 2019-2020.
