Policies, Terms and Conditions
By accessing this website, or the Arbitration Award Practice Blog (here), you agree to the following policies, terms and conditions (the “Policies, Terms & Conditions”).
Loree & Loree (“Loree & Loree,” “L&L” or the “Firm”) is a partnership under the laws of the State of New York.
This website (the “Website”), the Firm’s main website (here) (the “Firm’s Main Website”), the Firm’s Federal Arbitration Act Litigation Website (here), the Loree Reinsurance and Arbitration Law Forum (here), the Arbitration Award Practice Blog (here) and the Federal Arbitration Act Litigation Procedure Blog (here) shall, for purposes of the Policies, Terms & Conditions, be individually and collectively referred to as “Our Websites and Blogs” or “the Firm’s Websites and Blogs.” “Our Websites and Blogs” or “the Firm’s Websites and Blogs” shall therefore refer to and include: (a) any one of Our Websites and Blogs; (b) any number of Our Websites and Blogs; and (c) all of Our Websites and Blogs.
Our Websites and Blogs have been prepared by the Firm for informational purposes only, and they and the information they contain do not constitute legal advice or the solicitation of legal business, and should not be interpreted, construed, or relied upon as such.
The information set forth in Our Websites and Blogs is general in nature and may or may not reflect the most recent legal developments. It may not reflect the law as it is or may in the future be interpreted by the courts of all or even the majority of U.S. states, the United States Supreme Court or any of the lower federal courts.
In addition, irrespective of what particular legal rules or principles may apply or potentially apply to the facts presented by any particular case, the outcome of the case will depend on the facts specific to that case. Nothing contained in Our Websites or Blogs should be taken as a representation of how your particular case would be concluded, or even that a case with similar facts to an actual or hypothetical case discussed in Our Websites and Blogs will have a similar result. The result of any real or hypothetical case discussed in Our Websites or Blogs turns or turned, and is or was dependent, on the specific facts of that case. The results of any other actual or hypothetical case would or may differ if based on different facts or subject to different legal rules or principles.
The reader should not consider any of the information in Our Websites and Blogs to be an invitation to an attorney-client relationship or an offer by the Firm or any of its attorneys to enter into an attorney-client relationship. The reader should not rely on any of that information for any purpose.
An attorney -client relationship between the Firm and any person or entity is not created unless the Firm consents to represent such person or entity. Nothing in Our Website or Blogs should be construed or interpreted to be consent by the Firm to enter into an attorney-client relationship with any person or entity. Receipt by the Firm or any of its attorneys of electronic mail or any other communication (whether electronic or not, and however dispatched, or transmitted) precipitated by, or made through, Our Website and Blogs, or precipitated or made by or through any other means, does not constitute or evidence L&L’s consent to enter into an attorney client relationship with the sender, or with any other person or entity, and should not under any circumstances be construed as such.
Electronic mail or other communication (whether electronic or not) through, or precipitated by, Our Websites and Blogs, or otherwise transmitted or delivered to the Firm, or any of its attorneys, in connection with a matter for which we have not consented to represent you, may not be treated as privileged or confidential under applicable law. Loree & Loree may already represent a client who is interested, adversely or otherwise, in a dispute or matter you might want to discuss with us in anticipation of possibly entering into an attorney client relationship. Accordingly, before you discuss with us or send us any information you consider or believe to be confidential, you need to identify all persons and entities who are or may be interested in the matter or dispute, including, without limitation, the potential client or clients and their adversaries or counterparts. That way the Firm can make at least a preliminary determination as to whether there are or may be any actual or potential conflicts of interest that would need to be resolved (assuming resolution is possible) before you share any confidential information or documents with the Firm or any of its attorneys concerning that matter.
If you choose to contact us through Our Websites and Blogs, or through other electronic means, you should be aware that information transmitted electronically may not be secure. Even under circumstances where the information might otherwise be subject to an applicable privilege or other legal protection, a third party wishing to access the information might legitimately be able to argue that, under applicable law, the information is not entitled to that privilege or legal protection because it was sent electronically rather than by some other, more secure means.
Lawyers in the United States have been the subject of a number of illegal, counterfeit check scams, which generally involve a person posing as a representative of a real or nonexistent business entity sending an email to the Firm, which purports to request the Firm to represent the entity with respect to some matter. We do not respond to such emails, or any other email or other electronic communication that we believe to be of suspicious origin or possibly fraudulent.
Although Our Websites and Blogs may be viewed from any of the 50 United States of America, any territory of the United States, and any country or other jurisdiction in the world, the Firm’s lawyers are licensed to practice only in New York State, and before the federal courts listed in their CVs (here), and the Firm practices principally within the State of New York, and in connection with matters pending in that State or pending in other jurisdictions but concerning New York or federal law. The Firm’s lawyers cannot represent you in matters pending in other states or countries unless you retain local counsel licensed in the appropriate jurisdiction, and then only if permitted by applicable law, including applicable ethical and court rules, which may require admission pro hac vice (which may not be available or granted).
If the bar rules in your jurisdiction require us to identify an attorney and office responsible for this website, the Firm designates Philip J. Loree Jr., Loree & Loree, 7 Bayview Terrace, Manhasset, New York 11030, (516) 627-1720 (PJL1@LoreeLawFirm.com).
Neither New York State nor any federal court or agency certifies lawyers as specialists in any of the areas in which Loree & Loree practices. Loree & Loree’s attorneys are not certified as specialists in any of those areas, and do not hold themselves out as such.
The Firm respects the privacy of its clients and friends. Contact information is maintained in one or more databases to notify our audiences of Firm news, events, services, and other developments, as well as for internal statistical analysis. We pledge to protect the confidentiality and security of such information. While we may forward contact details to appointed agencies to assist us in processing mailings, we will not provide them to any other party for any other purpose, other than as required by law. If you wish to be added to or removed from our database, or if you would like to correct your information, please contact us atPJL1@LoreeLawFirm.com.)

Should any of these Policies, Terms & Conditions be declared void or unenforceable by any court of competent jurisdiction, such Policy, Term or Condition shall be deemed severable from the rest of the Policies, Terms & Conditions, which shall remain in full force and effect.
The Firm may change any of the Policies, Terms & Conditions without written notice to any person.
The changes shall become effective upon posting of the changes to this Website.
