Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement

Bircham Dyson Bell is committed to acting responsibly in all our activities and to upholding the high standards expected of the profession.

We have built a culture that is supportive, proactive and driven. Slavery and human trafficking do not fit in with this ethos. We will only work with like-minded organisations, who are equally committed to these goals.

As part of our Procurement Process, we take steps to ensure that any potential suppler is not involved in modern slavery and human trafficking. In 2017, we wrote to our principal suppliers requesting details of the steps they are taking to ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place within their businesses and supply chains, and requesting copies of any relevant policy documents dealing with this issue. We have logged and reviewed their responses to ensure that their approach is consistent with ours.

We will work with our suppliers to ensure that our approach to slavery and human trafficking is reflected in all our purchases of goods and services so that neither we nor they are involved in any way, either directly or indirectly, in slavery and human trafficking.

Our Commitment

We are committed to ensuring that slavery and human trafficking have no place in our business or in our supply chain. This statement has been approved by the Management Board of Bircham Dyson Bell LLP and will be reviewed annually.

This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes our firm’s slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending 31 May 2016.
