5. Consultation Services; Limitations; Waiver of Conflicts.
5.1 Services. The Website offers you the ability to retain
the services of Becker & Poliakoff on the limited basis described
below, for the purpose of providing you with certain trial consulting
advice, including but not limited to advice related to the voir
dire process, informal focus groups, web-based focus groups, theme
analysis, and related activities (collectively, the "Consulting
Services"). Consulting Services shall be provided to you
only upon your unconditional acceptance of these terms and your
payment in full of the applicable fee.
5.2 Limitations. There are myriad variables that can
effect the outcome of the trial process, many of which are neither

of the Consulting Services for any given situation.
6. Waiver of Conflicts. Becker & Poliakoff may provide
the Consulting Services to other parties, one or more of whom may

time-sensitive nature of the Consulting Services, Becker & Poliakoff
will not run a conflict check prior to providing the Consulting
Services to you. In providing web based services we do not ask for
the name of the client, so as to minimize actual conflicts arising;
but this very process makes it possible that on rare occasions such
conflicts may in fact exist. Accordingly, you hereby knowingly
and voluntarily agree to waive any conflict, whether actual or potential,
that may arise from Becker & Poliakoff providing the Consulting
Services to other parties, whether such conflict is direct or indirect.
Under no circumstances will we make the results of consulting services
done for you, be they focus group results or advice, known to any
third party without explicit authorization from you.
