The Modern Slavery Act 2015—Law Debenture Group Statement
LawDeb is a service provider. Its supply chain represents the steps taken to get our services to a customer. Although Law Debenture falls below the turnover threshold that obliges a statement to be made under the Act, we nevertheless feel it is appropriate to publish the following general statement.
While LawDeb is committed to preventing slavery and human trafficking in its corporate activities, it believes that its supply chains are of low risk as suppliers, for the most part, are professional advisory firms. LawDeb has reviewed the supply chains across the group. LawDeb’s organisational structure and activities are described each year in the annual report of The Law Debenture Corporation p.l.c. (available here), including the countries in which it is established (see page 2 of the annual report). None of the activities listed is considered to be at high risk of slavery or human trafficking in its supply chains.
All of LawDeb’s employees have access to confidential whistleblowing arrangements which make it easy for them to make disclosures, without fear of retaliation, if an employee has any concerns about LawDeb’s supply chain. LawDeb only uses suppliers generally, this means legal advisers, financial advisers, accountants and other professional firms - of the highest repute and of appropriate regulatory status.
