Cookies

Cookies are text files placed on your computer to collect standard internet log information and visitor behaviour information. This information is used to track visitor use of the website and to compile statistical reports on website activity.

For further information visit www.aboutcookies.org or www.allaboutcookies.org.

You can set your browser not to accept cookies and the above websites tell you how to remove cookies from your browser. However in a few cases some of our website features may not function as a result.

Other websites

Our website contains links to other websites. This privacy policy only applies to this website so when you link to other websites you should read their own privacy policies.

Confidentiality

Solicitors are under a professional and legal obligation to keep the affairs of clients confidential. This obligation, however, is subject to a statutory exception: recent legislation on money laundering has placed solicitors under a legal duty in certain circumstances to disclose information to the Serious and Organised Crime Agency. Where a solicitor suspects that a transaction on behalf of a client involves money laundering, the solicitor may be required to make a disclosure.

If, while we are acting for you, it becomes necessary to make a disclosure, we may not be able to inform you that a disclosure has been made or of the reasons for it. Where the law permits us to do so, we will tell you about any potential money laundering problem and explain what action we may need to take.

Changes to our privacy policy

We keep our privacy policy under review and we will place any updates on this web page.
