DLA Piper owes strict duties of confidentiality to its clients. These obligations are set out in various legal, regulatory or other professional rules and are reflected in our terms of business and engagement documentation entered into with each client.
Before we accept a new instruction DLA Piper will ask for information about the potential client and the nature of the proposed work for the purpose of conflict checking, credit checking, client identification procedures and other bona fide purposes. This information (which may include personal data) may be disclosed to any DLA Piper entity and/or DLA Piper Group and Relationship Firms and/or some or all of their members for such purposes.
For further information about DLA Piper and its Group and Relationship Firms please refer to legal notices.
