This website is not intended to create, and does not create, an attorney-client relationship between you and SIPL, and you should not act or rely on any information in this website. Thus, your receipt or transmission of information to or from the Art Law Journal website alone does not create an attorney-client relationship or ensure confidentiality. Because of the possibility of conflicts of interest, you agree to waive any claim of confidentiality for information submitted via this site. Moreover, because of limitations in the security features of the Internet, information sent to/from this site may be intercepted by third parties, and you agree not to hold SIPL responsible for any such interception.
