Confidentiality Obligations and Legal Privilege

As a law firm, we take very seriously our obligation of confidentiality to you and especially in relation to your legal matters. We understand the sensitive nature of any personal information that is disclosed to us. Any personal or sensitive information disclosed to us with the dominant purpose of obtaining legal advice or services will be kept confidential and protected by Legal Professional Privilege. Subject to any exceptions under the law, Legal Professional Privilege is a protection of any legal advice we provide to you and any communications between us that relates to your legal matter. 

The Australian Privacy Law

By providing us with personal information, you consent to the disclosure of your information outside of Australia and acknowledge that we are not required to ensure that overseas recipients handle that personal information in compliance with the Privacy Act (Act) and the Australian Privacy principles (APPs). In that regard, the Act and the APPs may not regulate third parties overseas. If any third party engages in any act or practice that contravenes the APPs, it would not be accountable under the Act.

We treat personal information that is also sensitive information with a higher level of protection under the APPs. Sensitive information is classified as information relating to your racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religion, trade union or other professional associations or memberships, philosophical beliefs, sexual orientation or practices, criminal records, health information or biometric information.

Provided you consent, your sensitive information (if we hold any) may only be used and disclosed for purposes relating to the primary purpose for which the sensitive information was collected. Sensitive information may also be used or disclosed if required or authorised by law.

Information from third parties: If we receive personal information about you from a third party, we will protect it as set out in this Privacy Policy.

Overseas transfer

Your personal information may be transferred to an overseas jurisdiction with substantially similar data protection laws such as the United States of America, the United Kingdom or countries within the European Union (EU). These countries have data protection laws, which protect personal information in a way that is at least substantially similar to APPs and there will be mechanisms available to you to enforce protection of your personal information under that overseas law. We do not require overseas recipients to comply with the APP and we will not be liable for a breach of the APP if your personal information is mishandled.


In some circumstances, the European Union General Data Protection (GDPR) provides additional protection to individuals located in Europe. Where this is the case, there may be additional rights and remedies available to you under the GDPR if your personal information is handled in a manner inconsistent with that law.

We cannot guarantee the security of any information that is transmitted to or by us over the Internet. The transmission and exchange of information is carried out at your own risk. Although we take measures to safeguard against unauthorised disclosures of information, we cannot assure you that the personal information we collect will not be disclosed in a manner that is inconsistent with this Privacy Policy.
