Under a new federal law called the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, law firms and other professionals who provide services related to your personal financial information are required to inform clients of their policies and practices regarding the privacy and security of your information. Since you have chosen to access our Site, we are providing the following information to you:
In the course of providing clients with advice on legal, business, financial and other related matters, Greene Fidler may receive significant personal financial information from its clients. In addition, Greene Fidler may assemble and maintain information relating to the legal services provided. The information that Greene Fidler may assemble and maintain may be obtained from the client, generated as a result of the services provided, or received from third parties. If you are or become a client of Greene Fidler, you should know that all information that Greene Fidler receives from a client is held in confidence, and is not released to people outside the firm, except as agreed to by the client, or as allowed or required under applicable and the rules of professional conduct governing the provision of legal services.
Generally, Greene Fidler retains information in its files until completion of the matter to which that information relates. Thereafter, those files may be purged and placed in storage or returned to the client. Greene Fidler may retain copies of files returned to clients. Inactive files are maintained until Greene Fidler determines that those files are no longer useful in rendering services to the client, or are not otherwise required in connection with our role as counsel or former counsel. When inactive files are no longer useful in rendering services to the client, the client may retrieve such files or authorize the destruction of the files.
