Online Privacy and Cookie Policy


Dechert recognizes the importance of your privacy. This online privacy policy is meant to inform users of our website about the information we collect online and how that information will be used. If you have additional questions about Dechert’s data collection practices after reading this notice, please contact us at privacy@dechert.com.

Dechert’s website collects personally identifiable information such as names and addresses only from visitors who voluntarily input such information in response to prompts we have placed at various points on our website. Dechert also will collect e-mail addresses from the e-mails you send us. Dechert’s computers automatically collect certain non-personally identifiable information when you visit our site, such as the type of browser you are using or the domain name of your Internet service provider. They also collect aggregate information on the site pages our users visit.

Dechert will use the personally identifiable information we collect online only to send you information about firm events or publications. We do, however, provide you the opportunity to decline placement on our mailing lists. The data we hold is kept securely and only accessed by authorized personnel.

Computer data containing no personally identifiable information will be used only for internal business purposes and then discarded.

To the extent permitted by law, Dechert LLP will not sell, share, or otherwise disclose any of the information it collects online without your permission. Exceptions are disclosures to third parties who monitor the website and to parties who assist or cooperate in preparing firm mailings.

The data gathered also will be shared appropriately with our offices in the United States, Europe, Asia and the Middle East.

Like many websites, we may use “cookies.” A cookie is a piece of data stored on a user’s device containing information about the user’s visit. Cookies are of various types and have different purposes including:

  • Google Analytics cookies: we use these cookies to track information about a user’s visit, including the IP address of the visitor, time and duration of visit, pages viewed, visit source/referring site and time zone. We use the information to check the usefulness of our website and help us improve it and so enhance visitor’s experience of its visitors.
  • Cookies to keep track of logon IDs and system favorites for our client extranets so that the visitor does not have to log on or set favorites on every visit. We also use them to keep track of pages viewed. You can change your user settings in your browser to prevent us storing cookies on your device. You can find out how to do this, and find more information on cookies, at: www.allaboutcookies.org.

Dechert may revise this policy or any part of it at any time. We suggest you review the policy periodically for changes. If you no longer wish us to hold data about you, or wish to change the type of information we send to you, please let us know by email at privacy@dechert.com.
