The Basis on which the Firm Uses Personal Information

The Firm may use personal information:

  • To perform a contract, such as an agreement with an individual or entity to provide legal or other services.
  • To establish, exercise, or defend legal claims, actions, or proceedings, including arbitration proceedings.
  • To comply with legal and regulatory obligations.
  • For legitimate business purposes. 

How Long we Retain Personal Information

Your personal information will be retained in accordance with our data retention policy which specifies the appropriate, minimum retention period for that information. The period for retaining that information is based on legal and regulatory requirements, limitations periods for actions and proceedings, good practice, and the Firm’s business purposes.

With Whom we May Share Personal Information

We may share your personal information with certain trusted third parties in accordance with contractual arrangements in place with them, including:

  • Suppliers to whom we may outsource certain support services such as word processing, cloud storage, cloud back-up, translation, photocopying, scanning, and document review.
  • IT service providers that the Firm may retain.
  • Third parties engaged by or with the prior consent of clients for purposes of providing services to those clients, such as barristers, local counsel, consulting and testifying expert witnesses, accountants, digital and other forensic professionals, and technology service providers like e-discovery providers and data room and case management service providers.
  • Third parties involved in hosting or organizing events or seminars.

Where necessary, or for the reasons set forth in this policy, the Firm may also share personal information with regulatory authorities, courts, tribunals, government agencies and law enforcement agencies. While it is unlikely, the Firm may be required to disclose a person’s information to comply with legal or regulatory requirements. The Firm will use reasonable endeavors to notify the person before it does this unless it is legally restricted from doing so.

The Firm may use social media sites such as LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter. If you use these sites, you should review their privacy policy for more information on how they deal with your personal information.

The Firm does not sell, rent, or otherwise make a person’s personal information commercially available to any third party, except with the prior consent of the person who owns that personal information.   

How the Firm Protects Personal Information

The firm uses a variety of technical and other measures to help protect personal information from unauthorized disclosure, access, use, alteration, or destruction consistent with data protection laws.

Your Rights Regarding Your Personal Information

Where applicable, the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation provide certain rights for data subjects, as do other data protection laws where applicable.  

A person is entitled to request details of the information we hold about that person and how we process it. A person may also have a right in accordance with applicable data protection law to have it rectified or deleted, to restrict the Firm’s processing of that information, to stop unauthorized transfers of personal information to a third party and, in some circumstances, to have personal information transferred to another organization. A person may also have the right to lodge with a local supervisory authority a complaint concerning the Firm’s processing of that person’s personal information. 

If a person objects to the processing of that person’s personal information, or if that person provides its consent to processing but later chooses to withdraw that consent, then the Firm will respect that choice in accordance with its legal obligations.

A person’s objection (or withdrawal of any previously given consent) could mean that the Firm is unable to perform the actions necessary to achieve the purposes set out above or that the person may not be able to make use of the services the Firm offers. Please note that even after a person has chosen to withdraw its consent to processing that person’s personal information the Firm may be able to continue to process that personal information to the extent required or otherwise permitted by law, including for purposes of helping the Firm exercise and defend its legal rights or satisfy its legal and regulatory obligations.

The Firm needs to be sure a person’s personal information is current and accurate. Accordingly, persons should advise of any changes by emailing
