We process personal data for several different purposes, and these will be described below.

1.2  Processing of personal data in our legal practice

We process personal data in connection with our legal practice. Clients and counterparties/counterparties’ legal counsel disclose a number of personal data to us for the purpose of practicing law. Our legal practice includes conducting ID checks, money laundering controls, case administration and invoicing in addition to correspondence internally and externally with personal and legal actors.

In connection with the practice of law, we process all types of personal data, including special categories of personal data. Typically, we will process the name, contact information and work title of the client or one or more contact persons at a client that is a business, in addition to the personal data collected in connection with the execution of assignments from clients.

We process this personal data for the purpose of fulfilling an agreement with and performing an assignment on behalf of clients. The basis for processing is agreement, consent or in some cases that the processing is necessary to establish, exercise or defend legal claims. For some processing, the basis for processing will be our legitimate interests, which exceed the need for protection of the data subjects’ interests, typically this applies to knowledge management (not special categories of personal data) and marketing.

As a general rule, case documents (all documents stored on cases in our case administration system) are stored for 10 years, but can be stored longer if requested by the client or in special cases where a longer storage period is required. In any case, we will store information for as long as required by law, and if a special need arises, for example in the event of complaints or legal claims made against us or by us.

We process personal data when arranging seminars, courses and manuductions for clients, potential clients, students and others. We collect name, contact information, position/student status and employer/educational institution to organize the events, typically using registration and participant lists.
