Any personal information you provide will be collected confidentially and stored in and processed in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998. Any personal data you provide to us, such as your contact details or details of your legal query, will be used for the purposes of advising you and providing you with such services as you may require from time to time.


If you have specifically opted in to us contacting you for marketing or informational purposes you have consented to your information being added to our database and we will use that data to send you information about our services and events  that may be of interest to you unless or until you go on to specifically request otherwise.


Under no circumstances will we disclose your personal data to any other party without your express or implied consent (such as in the course of the provision of legal services such as the instruction of external counsel or an expert on your behalf) unless required to do so by law. If you do not wish to receive useful information about our services in this way please email


Your rights under the Data Protection Act 1998, such as to request a copy of the information we hold about you, are preserved.

Security in General


While we take all steps we can to try to maintain security of this website and our email communications, you should be aware that online communication is not always secure. You should always ensure that you have suitable antivirus and antispyware software on your computer, kept up to date, and that you download and install any relevant operating system updates (e.g. Windows Update especially those relating to security). It is your responsibility to make sure your computer is secure and we do not accept any liability for loss or harm arising from viruses or malware which you could have guarded against.


Please note that email communications may not be sufficiently secure for legal communications about your case. You should keep your passwords sufficiently secure and not disclose them to others, and it would be preferable not to use shared computers or email accounts for the discussion of legal business. If you have something particularly sensitive to discuss we’re always happy to talk on the phone, meet face to face (where appropriate) or to use suitable old-fashioned postal services. We can also consider encryption in some cases.
