COLLECTION OF PERSONAL DATA

Sometimes, in providing services, we may receive personal information of individuals such as officers, representatives, adverse parties, related parties, vendors, suppliers, professional advisors and government representatives.
LEGAL BASIS FOR PROCESSING YOUR INFORMATION
As discussed above, we process your information for the legitimate interest of communicating with clients, prospective clients, and other users about our legal services and our events and publications related to developments in the law. Processing your information for the purposes described is necessary for us to do what we do, and it's in both of our interests. When we use your information based on our legitimate interests, we conduct a balancing test based on the legitimate interest, necessity of processing your information, and how such processing impacts you.
We use personal information collected in the course of providing legal services solely to provide such legal services to our clients. Such processing is necessary for our compliance with legal obligations and our ethical and professional duties as lawyers. Our processing may also be necessary to fulfil a contract we have with you, such as an engagement letter for legal services.
