Other regulatory information

Anti-money laundering

In the UK, we are required to identify clients for the purpose of applicable anti-money laundering legislation and certain criminal legislation. This means that when we first receive instructions from a client, we are required to identify both our client and (if applicable) the client’s beneficial owner(s) and to verify those identities.  We may therefore ask you to provide us with appropriate evidence of identity or other information, which we will retain. If satisfactory evidence or information is not provided within a reasonable time of our request we may have to stop acting for you.

Professional indemnity insurance

We are required to have in place professional indemnity insurance.  Our insurers are Omnyy LLP writing on behalf of Lloyd’s Syndicates Antares, Probitas, Neon and Everest.  There is no territorial limit to the cover.

UK – Financial Services and Markets Act 2000

Matters upon which we are instructed may involve regulated activities within the meaning of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (FSMA). We are not authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), the regulatory body established in accordance with the FSMA, to undertake regulated activities and so may have to refer you to someone who is so authorised.

However, because we are members of the Law Society (which is a designated professional body for the purposes of FSMA), we may be permitted to engage in certain limited regulated activities, provided that they are closely linked to the legal services we are providing to you. Any services we provide in this respect, are regulated by the SRA.

Although Jurit LLP is not authorised by the FCA to conduct investment business, we are included on the register maintained by the FCA to carry on insurance mediation activity, (broadly the advising on, selling and administration of insurance contracts). The register of exempt professional firms can be accessed via the Financial Conduct Authority’s web at www.fca.org.uk/register.

4 Fraudulent emails

You may be sent fraudulent emails, purporting to come from Jurit. Such emails may include a copy of the firm’s logo and relay imaginative factual circumstances with a view to inducing the recipient to provide the sender with personal information or money or both. The emails may suggest that the recipient is due a large sum of money (for example, inheritance, unclaimed bank funds, lottery wins or loans) and request the recipient to pay a smaller sum, sometimes termed a transaction fee or brokerage cost, in order to claim it. Such emails are known to the police as: “419 scams”.  Jurit LLP has no involvement with these emails.  Recipients of such emails should not respond to them.

6 Complaints about Mediation Services

Client care partner and complaints about mediation services.Jurit is registered with the Civil Mediation Council (CMC) as a service provider. Its aim is to provide the parties to a mediation with the most suitable mediator for their dispute. This is why we have chosen our mediators carefully to reflect extensive industry and/or private practice experience.Nevertheless, despite our best efforts, and those of our mediators, from time to time things do go wrong. It is right that the parties should feel able to make appropriate representations to Jurit .We value your custom and would not wish you to have reason to be unhappy with us, or any mediator on any of our panels.

It is important that you raise any concerns that the parties (or any individual party) have as soon as possible after the conclusion of the mediation. In that way, we can deal quickly and constructively with any issues (including problems relating to the invoice for mediation and ancillary services) while the matter is fresh in everyone’s mind. We will make a written record of the representations made by the party(ies), the investigation undertaken and the recommendations we feel are appropriate in the circumstances. Each party will receive a copy of this record.

If you have any queries or concerns please contact the supervising partner for ADR services who is Robert Marcus (robert.marcus@jurit.com). If he is unable to resolve the matter to your satisfaction, or you would prefer not to speak to Robert then please contact our client care partner, who is Anthony Garrod (anthony.garrod@jurit.com).

In the unlikely event that Jurit is unable to resolve the issue, recourse may be had to the CMC Complaints Resolution Service – see http://www.civilmediation.org/governance/13/complaints-resolution-service.
