What we collect

We collect details from you when you request a service from our website, through emails, telephone conversations, written and verbal communications.

We use the information you provide primarily for the provision of legal services to you and for related purposes including:

  • Addressing correspondence and related documents to other parties and opponents in any litigation, as well as other agencies such as the courts of Government agencies where relevant to the work we are doing for you
  • Maintaining the financial and other personal information we are required to keep records of clients under the professional rules we are subject to and by law including our obligations to HMRC

Our use of that information is subject to your instructions, the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2018 and our professional duty of confidentiality.  Please note that our work for you may require us to give information to third parties such as expert witnesses and other professional advisers.

Controlling your personal information

The legal bases which are relevant to the work we undertake for you are mostly in order that we can satisfactorily perform the contract we have with you and also so that we can protect our interests and those of our professional indemnity insurers in the event of a future claim.  We are required by law to retain certain data including identity and address details in order that we can comply with the Government’s anti-money laundering controls.  We would need your consent to send you future marketing documentation.

You have a number of rights as a data subject including the rights to:

  • Be informed of the data we hold on you
  • Have any incorrect or out of date data rectified
  • Cease to receive certain forms of communication or to restrict processing
  • Take your data elsewhere (“portability”)
  • Object to our use of data

Unlike certain other business concerns we do not as a law firm involve ourselves in automated decision making and profiling.
