We are only entitled to hold and process your data where the law allows us to do so. The law sets out a number of different reasons for which a law firm may collect and process personal data and these include the following:

1. Contractual Obligations

The main purpose for holding any data is to provide you with legal services under the agreement that we have with you. This agreement is a contract between us and you and, the law allows us to process your data for the purposes of performing a contract. We may also may process your data to meet our contractual obligations to the Legal Aid Agency (LAA) where you receive public funding, should you be entitled.

2. Legal Compliance

If the law requires us to, we may need to collect and process your data. For example, we may pass off people involved in fraud or other criminal activity (money laundering).

3. Legitimate Interests

In certain situations, we may require your data to pursue our legitimate interests in a way which might be expected as part of running our business and which does not materially impact your rights, this may include to satisfy our external quality auditors and the regulators.

4. Consent

In some situations, we may collect and process your data with your consent. For example, when you receive email newsletters, when collecting your personal data, we will always make clear to you what data is necessary in connection with a particular service.

5. What do we Collect?

We normally collect your data when you provide it to us or, when it is provided to us by others (your opponents' solicitors), for example during a case or the Crown Prosecution Service etc. You may give us your data by email; through the webform; over the telephone; face to face or, indeed by post.

We only keep your data for as long as necessary for the purpose(s) for which it was provided. In any event, it is not kept for beyond 6 years after your case or matter ends.

A 6 year period is a regulatory necessity and we have to, therefore, make sure that we keep our clients' files for that period of time in case there are any issues need to be addressed at some point later.

For some cases, we may in certain circumstances decide that it may be appropriate to keep the data for a longer period than 6 years and, if so, we will notify you if we have any reason to believe that your matter falls into this category.
