different contact persons within that corporation including name, job title, and contact


Personal Information: Why we collect it

We may collect, store and process Personal and related Information to provide you with legal

advice, to respond to inquiries, and – unless you have let us know that you do not want us to

do this – to provide you with information about other products and services that we offer from

time to time (direct marketing).

Personal Information: How we collect it

We will collect Personal Information directly from you, unless it is unreasonable or

impracticable to do so. The Personal Information and related information we collect may be

services available to anyone outside Icon Legal – except as agreed or instructed by you or

where required by or permitted by Law.
