Modern Slavery Statement

This statement is made on behalf of Bevan Brittan LLP pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (the "Act") and constitutes our slavery and human trafficking statement.

Bevan Brittan LLP is registered in England and Wales and has offices in Bristol, Birmingham, London and Leeds. We have approximately 400 people spread across our four offices.

Our Approach

We work to the highest ethical and professional standards and value transparency and accountability in all our dealings. We have a zero tolerance approach to slavery and human trafficking and expect the same high standards from those we work with.

We have put in place a Modern Slavery Policy which is supported by other internal policies and HR processes such as our whistleblowing policy and disciplinary policy. During 2018/19, our suppliers’ compliance with the requirements of the Modern Slavery Act were subject to an audit. We are re-engaging with suppliers and making sure that they, and their supply chains, are free from modern slavery and human trafficking.

Responsibility

Our Risk & Best Practice Team, together with our HR team are together responsible for compliance internally and in our supplier relationships. This statement has been approved by the Board.

Supplier Due Diligence

We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business. We are carrying out checks on existing suppliers on a risk assessed basis and include as part of our procurement processes checks on any new suppliers.
