Wilson Lue LLP is committed to protecting your privacy. This policy outlines how we handle your personal information to protect your privacy when we interact with you.
Outside a lawyer-client or agent-client relationship
When we interact with you via our website, email, in phone or in person, we may collect your personal information. This may occur, for example, if you contact us for a consultation or general inquiry, apply for a position at our firm, or interact with our website. “Personal information” is defined as information about an identifiable individual, but does not include the name, title, or business contact information of an employee of an organization.
We may use your personal information in order to respond to your inquiries or to follow up on your interactions with us. For example, if you provide your email address or other personal information in the course of requesting information, we will use your personal information to respond to your inquiry, and we may later use your personal information to provide further information or inform you of developments in intellectual property law and practice. After you initiate contact, we may also collect your personal information from online or reference sources, such as social media or government records. We will not disclose your personal information to others outside Wilson Lue LLP without your express or implied consent unless compelled to do so by applicable laws or court orders. When we retain third parties to provide services to us, such as information technology or archiving services, we ensure that these third parties will maintain your personal information in confidence in accordance with our requirements.
In a lawyer-client or agent-client relationship
If you retain our professional services, we usually obtain your express or implied consent to collect and use your personal information as part of our retainer agreement with you. We use your personal information to provide services to you and, if the nature of the services warrants, to retain third parties on your behalf (e.g., expert witnesses or consultants). Generally we will not disclose your personal information to others without your express or implied consent unless compelled to do so by applicable laws or court orders, or in order to give effect to the terms of your retainer agreement (e.g., to arrange for collection of fees or disbursements from you). When we retain third parties to provide services to us, such as information technology or archiving services, we ensure that these third parties will maintain your personal information in confidence in accordance with our requirements.
To the extent that our written retainer agreement with you conflicts with these terms, the retainer agreement governs. As a law firm, we have professional obligations to keep confidential information we receive from you in the context of a lawyer-client or agent-client relationship.
