You are not a client of the Firm until you receive such an engagement letter. Please click the "OK" button if you understand and accept the forgoing statement and wish to proceed.


The sending of an email to a Timoney Knox lawyer does not create, and the receipt of it does not constitute, an attorney-client relationship. This website presents general information about Timoney Knox, LLP which is not intended to be legal advice, nor should you consider it as such. Please be aware that anything you send to anyone at the firm will not be confidential, secret, privileged or otherwise protected from disclosure unless we have formally agreed to represent you in writing and a conflicts check has been successfully completed. Unless we have created an attorney-client relationship in writing, please understand that no information provided in an email that you send to one of our lawyers will prevent Timoney Knox from representing a different client in the same matter. Also, by acknowledging the terms here, you consent to the firm's subsequent use of information that you provide us in the representation of another client. Consequently, please do not send confidential or sensitive information and/or documents to anyone at the Firm until you have been notified that a formal attorney-client relationship has been established.
