Our firm takes your privacy very seriously. We will protect non-public personal information you disclose to us in accordance with the terms of this notice. CCN reserves the right to amend this notice from time to time.
Notice to Clients and Former Clients
Pursuant to applicable laws and regulations, each law firm that provides advice with respect to personal financial matters is required to inform its clients of the law firm’s policies with respect to the disclosure of non-public personal information. Typically, CCN collects non-public personal information from its clients directly. However, with a client’s authorization, we may also collect this information from third parties such as accountants, financial advisors, insurance agents, banking institutions and other advisers. CCN does not disclose any non-public personal information of its clients or former clients to third parties except as required by law or as authorized by the client or former client. CCN protects the non-public personal information of its clients and former clients by maintaining physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that comply with our obligations under applicable professional standards and rules of ethics.
Although the laws and regulations referred to above establish rules regarding the collection, use, confidentiality and protection of non-public information, they do not limit the attorney-client privilege or the attorney’s duty to protect the confidentiality of a client’s information. Accordingly, in circumstances where applicable laws might allow disclosure of the non-public personal information of a client or former client, CCN will continue to follow the stricter non-disclosure rules imposed upon us by the attorney-client privilege and applicable professional standards and rules of ethics.
