Please read the Terms of Use carefully before you start to use the Website. By using the Website or by clicking to accept or agree to the Terms of Use when this option is made available to you, you accept and agree to be bound and abide by these Terms of Us and our Privacy Policy, found at www.jaspanllp.com/privacy-policy and incorporated herein by reference. You must accept these Terms of Use in order to use the Web site. If, at any time, you do not agree to the most recent version of the Terms of Use, you must cease using the Website.

Changes to Terms of Use

These Terms of Use may periodically change without notice, so you should check this page before every attempt to use the Website. When the Terms of Use are changed, the date of the latest revision will appear at the top of this page. Your continued use of the Website will constitute your acceptance of the changed Terms of Use.

No Legal Advice; No Warranty Regarding Content

The content, materials and information on the Website (collectively, the “Content”) has been prepared by Jaspan for informational purposes only.  The Content does not constitute legal advice and may not be relied upon for that purpose. The Content may not reflect current legal developments, is general in nature, may not apply to specific facts and circumstances, and is presented “as is” without warranty or representation of any kind, either express or implied. You should not take or refrain from taking any action based upon the Content without seeking legal counsel on the particular facts and circumstances at issue from a qualified attorney licensed in your state. You may not use the Content for anything other than personal informational purposes. We assume no liability or responsibility for any errors or omissions in the Content , and your use of the Website is at your own risk.

Some materials contained on the Website may constitute Attorney Advertising. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome.

No Attorney-Client Relationship; No Privilege

The Website is not an invitation to form an attorney-client relationship. Your use of the Website or communication with Jaspan through a Website link does not create any attorney-client relationship between you and Jaspan. If you wish to become a Jaspan client, you must contact an appropriate Jaspan attorney to discuss your specific legal needs so that we may determine if we can be of assistance to you. We will need to confirm whether we have any conflict of interest or other issues in providing legal services to you.  We may decline to represent you, in our sole discretion, for any reason. An attorney-client relationship with Jaspan may be established only by an engagement letter signed by a JSLLP attorney.

Jaspan does not seek to represent anyone desiring representation in any jurisdiction where its lawyers are not admitted or where this web site fails to comply with that jurisdiction’s laws and ethical rules.

Transmission and receipt of the materials on the Website does not constitute or establish an attorney-client relationship or create any duty of Jaspan to any reader of such materials. Unsolicited information sent to us by persons who are not Jaspan clients is not subject to any duty of confidentiality on the part of Jaspan. You agree that our receipt or review of such information, even if it is confidential and transmitted in good faith to retain us, will not preclude Jaspan, should we decline to represent you or should you decline to retain us, from representing another client directly adverse to you, even in a matter where that information could be used against you. In addition, any e-mail sent to Jaspan or its lawyers at e-mail addresses listed on this website will not create an attorney-client relationship and will not be confidential. Accordingly, under no circumstances should you send confidential information to Jaspan unless you have been authorized to do so by a Jaspan attorney or you have a pre-existing documented attorney-client relationship with Jaspan.
