What type of information will we collect from you?
The personal information we collect will depend on the nature of the services we are providing and what we are contracted to do for you. Typically, this might include the following:
- Contact details (including your name, address, and email address)
- Professional information (such as job title, previous positions, and professional experience)
- Banking and financial details (where a transaction is involved)
On what basis can we process your information?
The legal grounds for processing your personal data are as follows:
- It is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party, or to take steps prior to entering into a contract with you. The retainer between you and us, which is made up of our terms of business and engagement letter, sets out the terms of the contract and the services we will provide.
- It is necessary for the purposes of our legitimate interests, except where our interests are overridden by the interests, rights or freedoms of affected individuals (such as you). To determine this we shall consider a number of factors, such as what you were told at the time you provided your data, what your expectations are about the processing of the data, the nature of the data, and the impact of the processing on you.
- It is necessary in order to comply with mandatory legal obligations to which we are subject under EU or UK law.
Information collected from you about other people
In commercial matters, in the course of providing our services to you we will hold and use personal information about you, your officers and/or your employees. When you provide personal information to us relating to your officers or employees, you confirm that you are allowed to do so. You should ensure that those individuals understand how their data will be used by us.
What we are going to do with your information?
We will hold and use personal information about you in the following ways:
- Communicate with you during the course of providing our services, for example providing you with advice and dealing with your enquiries and requests.
- Carry out obligations arising from any contract entered into between you and third parties as part of your matter.
- Seek advice from third parties in connection with your matter or enquiry where appropriate.
- Respond to any complaint against us.
How long we keep your data for
We will only retain your information for as long as is necessary to:
- Carry out the work
- Establishment or defence of legal claims that could be made against us.
- Compliance with legal obligations under EU/UK law
Typically, we will store the information for six years from the date of your final bill.
Who your information will be shared with
We will not share your information with third parties for any purposes.
Security of your data
Your data will be held on secure servers within the European Economic Area (“EEA”) with all reasonable technological and operation measures put in place to safeguard it from unauthorised access. Where possible any identifiable information will be encrypted or minimised.
Measures when transferring your data to others
There may be occasions where we need to send your data outside the EEA. This would cover situations where we need to deal with international aspects of your matter and instruct overseas organisations to assist.
Some organisations may be located in countries outside of Europe where data protection laws are not as strict as they are in the UK. Where your personal data is being transferred outside the EU, we will undertake an assessment of the level of protection in light of the circumstances surrounding the transfer. We will make sure that any transfers are not repetitive and only limited to the minimum amount of information possible. In certain circumstances we may need to seek your consent unless there is an overriding legal need to transfer the information.
How you can access and update your information
You have a right to request a copy of the personal information we hold about you, known as a data subject access request. You also have the right to request that information we hold about you which may be incorrect, or which has been changed since you first told us, is updated or removed. These requests are free of charge and can be sent to us at our registered office below.
How you can object to us using your data
You can ask us to limit the way in which we are using your information or object to certain types of processing. We will do our best to comply with your request unless we have to use the information for legitimate business or legal purposes.
Any queries or concerns about the way in which your data is being used can be sent to our registered office below.
Moving your information to another organisation
You have the right to request that we send a copy of the personal data we hold about you to another organisation for your own purposes, for example when you are dealing with a different service provider. If you would like us to move, copy, or transfer your information to another organisation please let us know. We will respond to you within one month after assessing whether or not this is possible, taking into account the technical compatibility with the other organisation in question.
Complaints about the use of your personal data

If you are not satisfied with our response or believe we are processing your personal data not in accordance with the law you can complain to the UK data protection regulator, the Information Commissioner’s Office. Further details can be found at www.ico.org.uk or 0303 123 1113.
