No Attorney-Client Relationship Formed
Although we hope that you will find the content of this website informative, all materials on this website are provided by Bayard, P.A. for informational purposes only and do not contain legal advice, legal opinions or any other form of advice regarding any specific facts or circumstances. Information provided on this website may not constitute the most current or complete information with respect to legal topics or developments. Accordingly, a recipient of information from this website should not take or refrain from taking any action based on information on this website without first seeking legal advice from competent counsel in the relevant jurisdiction. Bayard, P.A. expressly disclaims all liability based on any information contained on this website.
The transmission and receipt of information contained on the website neither form nor constitute an attorney-client relationship with Bayard, P.A., or any of its partners, members, associates, consultants, independent contractors, service providers and agents. Any use of the information contained on this website or transmittal of information from emails on this website do not give you a reasonable basis for a belief that that use creates an attorney-client relationship.
Transmission of Information
If you would like Bayard, P.A. to represent you, the best way to initiate a discussion about that representation is to call the firm at +1-302-655-5000. It is important that we not create a conflict of interest between you and any of our current or past clients. This protects both you and them. Therefore, under no circumstance should you provide us with information, materials or documents pertaining to a matter without first speaking to one of our attorneys and receiving confirmation that the appropriate conflict checks have been cleared and the firm determines that it is otherwise able to accept the engagement.
The sending of an email to a Bayard lawyer does not create, and the receipt of it does not constitute, an attorney-client relationship. Unless we have created an attorney-client relationship in writing, please understand that no information, materials or documents provided in an email that you send to anyone at the firm will prevent Bayard from (i) representing a different client in the same matter, including representing a party adverse to you in the same matter, and (ii) using any such information, materials or documents you submit to us against you in that matter. Also, by acknowledging the terms here, you consent to the Firm’s subsequent use of information, materials or documents that you provide us in the representation of another client. Consequently, please do not send confidential or sensitive information, materials and/or documents to anyone at the Firm until you have been notified that a formal attorney-client relationship has been established.
If you communicate with us by email in connection with a matter for which we already represent you, you should note that the security of Internet email is uncertain. By sending sensitive or confidential information, materials or documents through email messages that are not encrypted, you accept the risks of such uncertainty and possible lack of confidentiality over the Internet.
