You can contact us by completing a contact form or you can contact us by telephone by calling our authorized representative GBG Direction and Strategy on 03303 501265. You must accept our terms, conditions and legal position in its entirety in order to use this website or to engage with us in any way whatsoever and by any means. If you disagree, please leave the website. This document in its entirety is intended to replace every other document that is similar within the project now and retrospectively. This document was/is issued in May 2016.
2. Our Legal Position
(a) Please note we are not:
(i) Barristers (Legal Services Act  (S181)(1));
(ii) Solicitors (Solicitors Act  (S21));
(iii) An incorporated body (Administration of Justice Act  (S9 and S9A)).
(iv) We are not regulated by the Bar Standards Board, the Law Society, the Ministry of Justice (MoJ), the Solicitor's Regulation Authority (SRA) or any other regulatory body. As such we cannot give legal advice and none of our activities amount to the same.
(b) Use of terms on our website and throughout the project
(i) "Gareth Group Law" and "GBG Law" simply refers to our politically neutral interest in upholding fair access to and provision of services offered to people by the public sector and in lawfully campaigning for public bodies to adhere to legislation for the benefit of wider society.
(ii) The use of the word "Advocate" throughout our project is intended to be read as "non legal, community based Advocate". This is not the same as an "Advocate" within Court or within Solicitors firms or Barristers Chambers.
(iii) Gareth Group Law/GBG Law is also not a registered charity or business - we are a grassroots project. We operate, where the Court gives us permission, as McKenzie Friends within Court and as Community Based (non legal) Advocates outside of the Court where we do not require permission to do so.
(iv) Gareth Group Law and the wider Gareth Group is being rebranded. Where you see a variation across our project, Gareth Group Law and Gareth Bailey Group Law (GBG Law) shall amount to the same, The Gareth Bailey Group (GBG) and The Gareth Group also shall amount to the same. The use of the word "us" "and "the project" shall amount to GBG Law/Gareth Bailey Group Law (GBG Law) - "you" shall refer to you as the person interacting with us regardless of whether you are a prospective Client, a Client, the subject of a case (for example a public sector body), a legal body or anybody else whatsoever.
(v) "The Wider Group" shall amount to The Gareth Group and the Gareth Bailey Group.
(vi) Gareth Group Law and Gareth Bailey Group Law (GBG Law) are entirely separate from projects and organisations carrying the Gareth Bailey Group branding.
(vii) This document is governed by law in England and Wales and we solely operate within its jurisdiction.
viii) The terms and conditions here are equally applicable however communications occurs between you and us. This includes, but is not limited to, contact in person, by telephone, by Email, by fax or by post.
(c) Any use whatsoever of this website or when you communicate with the project by any means signifies your acceptance of this document in its entirety and without limit.
(d) Where any term is not legally enforceable, the rest of the paragraphs shall continue to apply.
