Below we explain how collect, and how we use, your personal information.
“Personal information,” for these purposes, means any information that could reasonably be associated, directly or indirectly, with an identifiable person or household. We may collect personal information from you in a variety of circumstances, including:
- During the course of providing legal advice, representation, or services to you, including when you provide personal information to us in those circumstances or we receive or collect it from third parties;
- When you send us personal information, including by submitting information through our website or when you submit questions or requests to us, or when you contact us by any means, as we may keep a record of your having done so;
- When you visit our website, as part of general website analytics (for which we encourage you to look at our notice regarding cookies for more information); and
- When you visit our office or otherwise interact with us in person or by videoconference or other means.
As part of providing you with legal advice, representation, or services, you may give us personal information about other people, including your employees, business contacts, friends, or relatives. You must ensure that you have a legal basis to give us that information. It is your responsibility to so ensure. Once you give us such information, we may process and disclose it as described in this Privacy Notice.
We may use personal information about, and from, you to:
- Give you legal advice, representation, or services and otherwise carry out any contractual obligations we may have to you;
- Conduct our business relationship with you;
- Respond to requests you make;
- Confirm your identity and allow us to carry out checks to ensure security and prevent fraud;
- Notify you about changes to our services or our website; and

You have the right to ask us not to process your personal information for marketing purposes at any time. You can exercise your right to prevent such processing by:
- Replying directly to a marketing message;
- Unsubscribing from marketing messages; or

- We may share personal information with third parties as required in the course of providing you legal advice, representation, or services.
- We will share personal information with law enforcement agencies, governmental authorities, or regulators where we are under a duty to do so, or if we reasonably consider it necessary to help prevent or detect crime or to protect the rights, property, or safety of our firm, our clients, or others.
We may transfer, use, or store your personal information outside of your home jurisdiction. Where we do so, the laws of some of those other jurisdictions may not offer the same level of protection as do the laws of your home country.
We will keep your personal information for only as long as necessary. In making that determination, we will consider, among other things,
- Applicable laws, including statutes of limitation, and any relevant guidelines from supervising authorities;
- Status of ongoing representation;
- Any withdrawal by you of consent; and
- Potential disputes.
