Modern Slavery Act

Introduction

Carey Olsen is a leading offshore law firm and we are committed to the highest standards of professionalism, ethical behaviour and integrity in everything we do. We take our responsibilities to our clients, the people who work in our business, our suppliers and the communities in which we do business seriously.

This statement is published on behalf of Carey Olsen pursuant to Section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and covers the financial year ended 30 June 2022.

The Profile of our Business

Carey Olsen is a multi-jurisdictional law firm operating through a number of separately constituted and regulated legal partnerships and companies which provide legal and other client services in accordance with the relevant laws of the jurisdictions in which they operate. We also have a small number of operating and administrative subsidiary companies. We currently operate from offices in Bermuda, the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands, Guernsey, Hong Kong, Jersey, Singapore, South Africa and the United Kingdom. Further details can be found on our website under Legal Notices.

The jurisdictions in which we operate do not have a poor record on modern slavery and human trafficking. We are committed to monitoring developments in these jurisdictions through sources such as the Global Slavery Index.

As a provider of legal and professional services, we consider the risk of modern slavery within our business and in our supply chain to be low. We do not operate through extensive or complex supply chains for the purpose of our business.

Policies

Not withstanding the low risk of modern slavery in our business sector, we are committed to ensuring that we do not permit practices such as modern slavery or human trafficking within our business or in our supply chain.

As a professional services business we comply with all relevant and applicable laws and regulations in the jurisdictions in which we operate, and in particular have comprehensive policies regarding the prevention of money-laundering, financing of terrorism, bribery and corruption and facilitation of tax evasion.

Before taking on a new client, we conduct due diligence checks to ensure that any issues relating to money laundering or other criminal enterprises, including modern slavery or human trafficking, are identified and reported.

Our lawyers are all members of professional organisations and as such are subject to, and required to comply with, professional and ethical codes of conduct. When recruiting, we have robust processes in place to ensure that appropriate checks on new recruits are carried out before the relevant staff member commences employment. In working for Carey Olsen, our staff are protected by our policies which are intended to reflect and uphold our commitment to a high standard of ethics and integrity in our business. Our policies are regularly reviewed to ensure that they are, and remain, comprehensive and training to staff is given.

Supply Chain

Our supply chain will typically include office services and supplies, catering, cleaning, delivery, maintenance and repair, recruitment agencies and IT suppliers. We deal only with reputable suppliers of such goods and services, and have a long-standing relationship with many of our suppliers.

We expect our suppliers to take all reasonable steps to comply with the principles of the Act. We continue to monitor and review our policies when engaging third party suppliers to identify and mitigate against supply chain risks.

Governance

As a multi-jurisdictional provider of legal services, we are committed to ensuring that modern slavery and human trafficking issues are considered at both a local and global level within our business and supply chain with robust and consistent measures put in place to address any identified risks.
