This Policy informs you about the use of cookies and other similar tracking technologies when you visit the law (“Website”), view a message, receive an email from us or use our social media pages. This Policy should be read in conjunction with our Data Protection Policy.


The use of the Website (including the newsletter and other digital offers) generates data which is stored in log files (in particular technical data). Currently in our website, we are not using cookies technology.

Whilst we do not currently use cookies technology, we do use social media plug-ins, e.g., small software modules that establish a link between your visit to our Website and a third-party supplier. The social media plug-in tells the third-party provider that you have visited our Website and may send the third-party provider cookies that it has previously placed on your browser.

We also use our own tools and the services of third-party service providers on our site, in particular to improve the functionality or content of our Website (e.g., integration of videos or maps), to compile statistics and to serve advertising.

We may use anonymised, aggregated, statistical information for purposes that include testing our IT systems, research, data analysis, improving our Website and developing new products and features. We may also share such anonymised information with others.

Our Website is not intended for or directed at children under the age of 16 years, and we do not knowingly collect data relating to children under this age.


We may use cookie and tracking technology in some of our emails to see whether emails are opened, replied to or forwarded and whether links are followed. Cookie and tracking technology is used in the following ways:

  • tracking gif – each email contains a tiny unique graphic or “pixel” that tracks whether the email is opened. The graphic does not contain any personal information.
  • cookie tracking – links within our email updates are unique to the recipient. When a link is clicked on, a session cookie will record the recipient’s visit to the destination page. The session cookie will be deleted when the recipient closes their browser or leaves the destination page.

The use of cookie and tracking technology helps us to improve the services we offer. If you no longer wish to receive marketing emails relating to our services by email or post, you can unsubscribe at any time by using the “Unsubscribe” option on the email footer or by contacting


We operate pages and other online presences on social networks (e.g., LinkedIn) and other platforms managed by third parties and process data about you in this context. In doing so, we receive data from you (e.g., when you contact our Website or comment on our content) and from the platforms (e.g., statistics).

The platform providers may analyse your use and process this data together with other information they have about you. They also process this data for their own purposes (e.g., for marketing and market research purposes and for the management of their platforms) and do so on their own responsibility. For further information on the processing carried out by the platform operators, please consult the data protection declarations of the platforms concerned.

We have the right, but not the obligation, to check third-party content before or after it is published on our online presence, to remove content without notice and, where appropriate, to report it to the provider of the platform concerned.


We have appointed a data privacy manager for our firm who is responsible for overseeing questions in relation to this Policy. If you have any questions about this Policy or our privacy practices, please contact our data privacy manager by email.

We keep our Online Privacy Policy under regular review and may change it from time to time. The version published on the Website is the current version.
