Collection of personal information
We only collect the personal information that is necessary to lawfully and
ethically carry on our business, to provide the services our clients require in specific
matters, to communicate efficiently with our clients and contacts, to keep our clients and
contacts informed of legal developments and events, and to responsibly market our
Unless we need particular information to provide the specific services a client
requires in a particular matter, the personal information we collect about a person is
limited to their name, gender and contact details, their occupation, their employer, and
details of their relationship or dealings with us or our clients or contacts.
We collect personal information about a person directly from the person
concerned when it's practical to do so. We may do this when a person meets with us,
communicates with us by telephone, mail, fax or email, subscribes to our publications, or
submits information via our website. We may be unable to provide the information or
services a person requests if we are not given the personal information we ask for.
We also obtain information about people from our clients and their agents (in
relation to specific matters), from their employers, or from publicly available records.
If a third party, such as a client, gives us personal information about another person,
the third party must ensure that they have the legal right to do so and that we have the
right to use and disclose the information for the purposes for which it is provided to us
without contacting the person. Depending upon the circumstances, the third party may need
to inform the person that the information has been provided to us and ensure that the
person is made aware of the matters detailed in this Statement.
Use and disclosure
We may use personal information we hold about people who are clients, employees
of clients, or contacts to send them our publications, other information we think may
interest them, or invitations to our events, but we won't if they have told us that they
don't want to receive such communications.
Apart from that we will only use the personal information we collect to provide
the services that our clients instruct us to provide in specific matters.
We have a professional duty to maintain the confidentiality of our clients'
information, and we will not disclose information about a client unless we have our
client's instructions, or are under a legal obligation, to do so. Often the information
given to us by clients is subject to legal professional privilege and we cannot be
compelled to disclose it unless our client consents.
We will disclose personal information we collect in relation to specific matters
when it is necessary to do so to provide our services and the disclosure is in accordance
with our client's instructions and is lawful and ethical.
We never disclose personal information we hold to any third parties to allow
them to market their products and services.
We take appropriate steps to ensure that all information we hold is protected
from loss, misuse, or unauthorised access, disclosure or modification. We maintain
physical security over our premises and access to our computer systems is limited by user
identifiers and passwords. All our staff are subject to strict obligations of
A person may use our website anonymously, but any information the person chooses
to submit to us (eg. to book for an event, or send us an email)

and browser type, the date and time of the visit, the information downloaded, and links
from other sites followed to get to our site. This information is anonymous and is only
used for statistical and website development purposes and to improve our communications.
People can request access to the personal information we hold about them. There
are some limitations upon this right to access, such as where we owe a duty of
confidentiality to a client or legal professional privilege applies. We may charge a fee
when access is provided.
