Our standards

LT Lawtank takes pride in its carefully crafted legal and linguistic services, striving at all times for linguistic and substantive precision alongside ease of understanding.

Accuracy is essential when dealing with legal texts, which also require targeted measures to ensure confidentiality, data protection and data security.

Reliability, precision, efficiency and discretion are our watchwords within our daily work for our global clientele. We pursue these traditional values using the most cutting edge technology.

Quality assurance

Security standards

Confidentiality

As lawyers with many years of experience with sensitive (and in some cases highly sensitive) data, we are mindful of the importance of the confidential status of our clients' documents and the related responsibility.

LT Lawtank operates a strict document management process:

  • Written and oral information and any data that we access in relation to our work for our clients are treated under all circumstances in the strictest confidence.
  • Alongside the statutory duty of confidentiality, we subject all of our staff to a contractual duty of confidentiality.
  • However, we are naturally also willing to sign project-specific non-disclosure agreements at any time.

Data protection

LT Lawtank treats all client data in confidence and in accordance with the relevant statutory requirements.

Any client data transmitted by the client to LT Lawtank by virtue of the usage of this website will only be used by LT Lawtank in relation to the specific mandate and will not be made accessible to third parties.

Data security

LT Lawtank guarantees data security using cutting-edge instruments.

  • For instance, data and email can be exchanged between the client and LT Lawtank and also between LT Lawtank and its external staff in encrypted form.
  • Our web services are also secured by an encryption protocol (SSL).
