Home / Regulatory Information
We’re not a law firm but that doesn’t mean we don’t pay attention to the regulations. Have a look below to see what we take into account.
LGBT Lawyers Limited
LGBT Lawyers Limited is a private limited company with company registration number 11870772.
Our registered offices are 16 Copse Wood Way, Northwood, HA6 2UE.
We do not undertake legal work ourselves, but we connect clients with lawyers and solicitors from both LGBT and non-LGBT backgrounds. The law firms we partner with are vetted to ensure both that they are regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority, and that the solicitors who we refer work to are authorised to carry out their relevant activities.
LGBT Lawyers’ marketing activities comply with Chapter 8 – Publicity of the SRA’s Code of Conduct 2011.
At LGBT Lawyers we do not take on clients ourselves, nor do we undertake any case management on behalf of clients. Any legal matters taken on by an LGBT partner firm are a matter between the partner firm and the client and payment must be arranged with the partner firm directly.
LGBT Lawyers will not accept payment on behalf of partner firms for clients for any legal work or activities.
GDPR AND PRIVACY
At LGBT Lawyers, our goal is to connect prospective clients with law firms who can help them with their legal matters.
In order to do this, there may be times when we will need to share client details with our partners, so we can book them in for appointments. This could include information such as names, contact information and details of the client’s legal issue.
Both ourselves and our partners are GDPR and privacy compliant. We will only pass client details on to our partners if the client agrees and gives us their full consent to do so. We will never share personal details or information unless a client gives us their full permission.
