Agat Advokater is the controller for the personal data regarding contact persons we receive in connection with assignments or otherwise processed when the assignment is prepared or administered.

We process the data to carry out mandatory conflict of interest and (if applicable) money laundering control, perform and manage the assignment, to safeguard your interests, for accounting and billing purposes. These data are processed on the basis that it is necessary to fulfill the agreement with you, necessary to fulfill a legal obligation or, in public assignments, to fulfill a task of public interest.
The data can also be used for business and method development, market analysis, statistics and risk management. The data processed for the purpose of developing and analyzing the business is processed on the basis of our legitimate interest in developing the business and communicating with our contacts.
Personal data may be transferred between the law firm's various group companies for the purpose of performing conflict of interest and money laundering control, for information and knowledge sharing and resource allocation. We will not disclose personal data to third parties other than in cases where:
(i) it is specifically agreed between the law firm and you,
(ii) it is, within the framework of a particular assignment, necessary to safeguard your rights,
(iii) it is necessary for us to comply with statutory duties or to comply with authority decisions or court decisions, or
(iv) in case we hire subsidiary processors who perform assignments on our behalf.
The personal data may be disclosed to courts, authorities, counterparties and their council if necessary to safeguard your rights.
Personal data are stored, in accordance with the obligation imposed on Agat Advokater under the Swedish Bar Association’s Code of Conduct, for a period of ten years from the date of completion of the assignment or the length of time invoked by the nature of the matter.
