Your privacy is extremely important to us so we only use the information you provide about yourself and your company when using this website to answer your enquiry or to help us to improve our service to you.

The information we collect

We may collect and process the following data about you:

Our use of IP addresses and cookies

We may collect information about your computer, including where available your IP address, operating system and browser type, for system administration and to analyse aggregate information. This is statistical data about our users’ browsing actions and patterns, and does not identify any individual.

All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.

When we might disclose your data to third parties.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of data that you transmit to our site; any transmission is therefore at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict internal procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

We also keep your information confidential. The internal procedures of Shafi Solicitors LLP cover the storage, access and disclosure of your information.

We use information held about you in the following ways:

We may also use your data to provide you with information about goods and services which may be of interest to you and we may contact you about these by email, SMS, post or telephone.

If you are an existing customer, we will only contact you by electronic means (e-mail or SMS) with information about goods and services similar to those which were the subject of a previous sale to you. If you are a new customer we will contact you by electronic means only if you have consented to this.

If you do not want us to use your data in this way, please contact us.

When we might disclose your data to third parties.

We may disclose your personal information to third parties in a very limited number of circumstances:

Your Rights

You have the right to ask us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes. We will usually inform you (before collecting your data) if we intend to use your data for such purposes. You can exercise your right to prevent such processing by checking certain boxes on the forms we use to collect your data. You can also exercise the right at any time by contacting us.

Our site may, from time to time, contain links to and from the websites of our clients and affiliates.

If we change our privacy policy we will post the changes on this page, and may place notices on other pages of the Website, so that you may be aware of the information we collect and how we use it at all times. We will also e-mail you should we make any changes so that you may consent to our use of your information in that way. Continued use of the service will signify that you agree to any such changes.

Owing to the global nature of the Internet infrastructure, the information you provide may be transferred in transit to countries outside the European Economic Area that do not have similar protections in place regarding your data and its use as set out in this policy.

Recently Shafi Solicitors represented me in court. I found the firm to be outstanding, informative and genuinely concerned about the situation that I was in and I felt confident to tell him what has happened. Urfan Shafi always advised with the best interests in my wellbeing and made me feel confident and made an excellent representation. If your really need someone who will fight your corner and keep you informed with the facts of your case you need to use these guys. Thank your Urfan and the legal team you were a fantastic help and I was really grateful that you had my corner.

A very professional and prompt service.... Amazing guys I can't thank them enough especially Urfan Mahmood who was always available to answer any questions and put the case together very quick. The team at Shafi Law will not rest until your case is over. I was sent to crown court for my case but these guys were so awesome and got me out of the case before the trial even started. Most solicitors firms don't want to know you once you have given them the case and they know you can't change representation but i was impressed with the hard work these guys put in. I recommend them 100%

I was falsely accused of a crime. These guys helped get it resolved quickly and provided me with not only professional legal support, but also gave me the feeling that I had people watching my back when I felt like the world was against me. If you are looking for a hard working, professional and reliable legal team, you need to hire these guys. Got their number saved in my phone just in case I ever need them again.

Great communication, highly professional Criminal Law Specialists you will be well catered for. Are you still reading? What don't you give them a call now? (Thanks ever so much Shafi Solicitors LLP) I left a review because I'm happy with the service I received from them. Even though they are solicitors, this is an unsolicited review. I just had to mention it because I can rely on them in court.
