13. No Lawyer-Client Relationship Created by Use of the Platform

Neither your receipt of information from the Platform, nor your use of the Platform to contact LPP Law or one of its lawyers creates a lawyer-client relationship between you and LPP Law. You will become a client of LPP Law only if and when we have agreed to act as your legal counsel and you have signed a written engagement letter with LPP Law. As a matter of policy, we do not accept a new client without first investigating for possible conflicts of interests and obtaining a signed engagement letter. We may also carry out credit check and customer due diligence check as part of our reporting obligation under the anti-money laundering law.

We reserve the right to decline any representation if it would create a conflict of interest with any of our current or former clients or for any other reason.

However, if you do provide confidential information directly to our lawyers (and through the Platform), we will preserve client’s confidentiality and legal professional privilege. Our lawyers may exchange your information with each other strictly for the purpose of providing legal advice or solution to you. We may also disclose or transfer the information you shared to our third party service providers including legal process outsourcers and hosting service providers, whether such providers are located in Malaysia or abroad.
