Advertising Booking Terms and Conditions and Cancellation Policy
Cancellations can only be made and will only be accepted within 24 hours of the initial booking date or 48 hours after receiving the proof document. The proof document is your ‘the Clients’ advert or advertorial, firm profile, and or individual biography.
By agreeing to our offer – by email, for you, or your firm to appear in The Lawyers Global magazines or any of its supplements or awards programs ‘ your booking acceptance ’ constitutes confirmation for your acceptance and agreement of the offer. You are creating and entering a legally binding contract, and payment of your invoice is due in full on receipt of the invoice.
Inquiries, Replies, and Suspensions
We take customer care and support very seriously. When you or your law firm requests information from us concerning listings, awards, or any active programs, we expect you or your law firm to reply or confirm that you received our message. The same way you expect from us a quick and comprehensive reply to your inquiries.
If we do not receive at least a reply from you or your law firm, any possible applicable programs will suspend for any possibility to be listed or apply to our Global Legal Awards or other programs during the next two consecutive years as herein stated.
Client's Content Liability
By accepting our offer to advertise or place a paid-for advert or advertorial, firm profile and or individual biography you ‘the Client’ will be liable to provide relevant copy materials that may include but not limited to an advert, logos, text, graphics for our production team at The Lawyers Global to complete your booking. If The Lawyers Global does not receive the materials before the production deadline, we reserve the right to produce your advert or advertorial, firm profile, and or individual biography to complete the booking. You ‘the Client’ will receive a proof of your advert or advertorial or your firm profile and or individual biography by email and will have 48 hours to inform The Lawyers Global of any amendments that you require or to inform The Lawyers Global by email that you would like to cancel the booking. If you do not respond to the proofing email sent by The Lawyers Global magazines for your advert or advertorial, firm profile and or individual biography it will be taken as no changes or amendments are required regardless of the advert or advertorial, firm profile and or individual biography being produced by you ‘the Client’ or by ‘The Lawyers Global’ and therefore the delivered work will be the final copy to be published, and no cancellation will be possible unless:
- 1) the edition, supplement or awards program you are to appear in has not yet been produced internally;
- 2) and you agree to pay the invoice in full;
- 3) or you send an email notifying The Lawyers Global that you would like to cancel within 48 hours of the production proofing email being sent to you.
If the edition, supplement, or awards program you are to appear in has not yet been produced, and you agree to pay the invoice in full, we will remove your booking entry from the relevant publication.
