Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking

Statement for the Financial Year 2019 – 2020

As a SME trading below the threshold we are not required to make a formal statement. However we do recognise that many of our clients will be seeking reassurance from us about our compliance with the requirements of the Modern Slavery Act

Modern slavery and human trafficking statement for Leonard Curtis Legal

Modern slavery is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights. It takes various forms, such as slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour and human trafficking, all of which have in common the deprivation of a person’s liberty by another in order to exploit them for personal or commercial gain. We are committed to improving our practices to combat slavery and human trafficking.

Organisational structure

We have fourteen shareholding Directors and sixteen additional Directors around the Country and our business and main services are provided by these Directors, together with trained professional and support staff in all of our offices.

Our supply chains

Our supply chains include, professional services firms (accountants, lawyers and insurance brokers), travel providers (airlines and rail companies) and then a range of suppliers that we use for goods that we purchase to use for the running of our business, including key suppliers for IT and storage facilities. We have conducted a risk assessment of these suppliers which is available on request.

Our commitment to combating slavery and human trafficking

Within our business there are relatively few risks in our supply chains or within our business. One of the reasons for this is because we are guided by our overall approach to doing business which requires high standards of honesty and integrity from our team.

Due diligence processes for slavery and human trafficking

As part of our initiative to identify and mitigate risk we have conducted a risk assessment and will review this on an annual basis.

We have agreed that one of our main board directors, Jon Mercer together with our National Head of HR Nicky Mitchell have lead responsibility for our work in this area and will provide training on the requirements of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 to all our staff. This will include outlining to our staff how they can raise any concerns about potential violations of our code of ethics or if there are concerns about any of our clients being involved in activities which are contrary to the spirit and intentions of the modern Slavery Act
