Many clients agree to transfer documents via e-mail. This is a normal means to keep in contact with law firms. Our practice usually communicates via e-mail both with clients and with other persons involved to conduct the matter. Nevertheless, as we cannot ensure all documents transferred via e-mail will always be kept confidential, you can oblige us at any time not to use e-mail.

Please note that under Articles 13 and 14 of the European Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (also the "GDPR") we are under a duty to advise how we intend to deal with personal data. Dealing with your data is solely aimed at properly and fully carrying out our professional assignment, either contentious or non contentious, or to respond to a preliminary enquiry before our retainer is formalised.

However data will also be processed in order to:

-         generally comply with the obligations that rest on the professional vis a vis the client or with the duties imposed by any legislation currently in force;

-         fulfil any obligations or discharge duties arising for the practice for tax and accounting purposes.


The processing takes place in compliance with the principles of appropriateness, loyalty and transparency, and can be achieved with or without the aid of electronic mediums. It may consist of operations of collection, registration, organisation, storage, consultation, processing, modification, selection, extraction, comparison, use, interconnection, blocking, communication, deletion and destruction of data. Personal data may be processed by means of both paper and electronic files (including portable devices) and processed in ways strictly necessary to meet the aforementioned purposes.

Our clients and contacts can rely on the rigths which are recognised by the GDPS and may in particular object to our dealing with their data. 

Please also note that all our fee earners and other staff are obliged to comply with confidentiality and may be excused from giving evidence in court in respect of relevant facts that have come to their knowledge while discharging their duties.
