Unless you have opted out, we will also offer you the opportunity to attend events which we – based on our previous corporation with you – know might be of interest to you.

Clients, counterparties and other parties
Our specialist areas involve processing both general, confidential and sensitive personal data about our clients and others related to our cases.
If you are a client, we will need to process your personal data in order to handle your case in the best possible way.
When advising clients in cases with both co- and counterparties, we will also receive personal data about others than our clients.
As a law firm, we are however subject to the obligation of confidentiality under the Code of Judicial Procedure and under the Rules of Professional Conduct for Lawyers. We may therefore sometimes determine that we can disregard the obligation of disclosure of information to you in order to keep the processing of our client’s case confidential. We may also – in relation to more peripheral actors in the cases (other external consultants, doctors, etc.) – determine that it is impossible or would require a disproportionate effort for us to notify everyone who may be related to a case about our processing of personal information. You can instead always read more about our processing of personal data in this Privacy Notice. If you have any questions, please find our contact information both above and below.
When handling our clients’ cases, we often need to share the information we receive with other external parties, such as counterparties, witnesses, the courts, arbitration panels, trade unions, municipalities and other authorities, etc. Such disclosure will however only take place if we are bound by law or if it is found necessary in order to handle our client’s interests in the best possible way.
If you apply for a job at SIRIUS, we will process the personal data you yourself have provided us with and any data that we – based on a consent from you – may have collected from others. The purpose of our processing is to assess your application and assess you as a candidate. We store all applications for up to six months after the position has been filled in order to ensure the right candidate for the job.
