Do not send us information until you speak with one of our lawyers and get authorization to send that information to us.
In some jurisdictions, this World Wide Web site may be considered advertising. Before making your choice of attorney, you should give this matter careful thought. The selection of a lawyer is an important decision that should not be based solely upon written information about our qualifications and experience.

Your privacy is important to us. This notice explains our online information practice and the choices you can make about the way your information is used at our site.
The Information We Collect
Our Web site does not automatically collect personally identifiable information about you such as your name, address, telephone number, fax number, e-mail address, etc., unless you choose to fill out a “Contact Us” form, found within the pages of the site or when you e-mail us directly.
We do automatically collect certain non-personally identifiable information when you visit our site such as the type of browser you are using, the type of operating system you are using, or the domain name of your Internet service provider (e.g., America Online, Comcast, Verizon, etc.).
How We Normally Use Information About You
We use non-personally identifiable information to analyze site usage, which allows us to improve the design of our site.
In the ordinary course of business, we use personally identifiable information you provide solely to respond to your inquiry. We will not contact you about other matters, unless you specifically request it, nor will we share, rent, or sell your personally identifiable information outside Berger McDermott LLP. If you are interested in applying for a job at the firm and choose to submit resume information by e-mail, we will use it only for the internal application review process. We will not voluntarily share, rent, or sell it outside the firm.
However, it is possible, though unlikely, that we might be forced to disclose personally identifiable information in response to legal process or when we believe in good faith that the law requires it, for example, in response to a court order, subpoena, or a law enforcement agency’s request.
Also, we cannot guarantee the privacy of personal information you transmit over the Web or that may be collectable in transit by others, including contractors who provide services to us.
Collection of Information by Third-Party Sites and Sponsors
Our site contains links to other sites whose information practices may be different than ours. Visitors should consult the other sites’ privacy notices as we have no control over information that is submitted to, or collected by, these third parties.
Berger McDermott LLP may post information about programs and events that are sponsored by or co-sponsored by other firms or organizations. Should you choose to register electronically for any of these events, Berger McDermott LLP will have no control over the third-party sponsors’ use of this information. As for our own use of your registration information, that will be handled by us as if you had registered by telephone or on paper. In other words, the privacy policies applicable to our Web site will not apply.
Our Commitment to Security
We employ security measures to prevent unauthorized access to information that we collect online. However, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information.
