Cookie Policy

1. About us

LK Shields Solicitors LLP is a partnership of solicitors whose principal business address is at 38 Upper Mount Street, Dublin 2, Ireland (LK Shields, we, us or our).

2. Who this policy applies to

This policy relates to your use of our website and any other service that links to this policy or incorporates it by reference and should be read together with our Privacy Notice and Legal Notices.

3. What are cookies and similar technologies?

A cookie is a small text file which is placed onto your device (e.g. computer, smartphone or other electronic devices) when you use our website. There are two distinct types of cookies: session cookies and persistent cookies. A session cookie allows a website to link your actions during a particular browser session. They expire each time you close your browser and do not remain on your device afterwards.  A persistent cookie is stored on your device in between browser sessions and allows your preferences or actions across websites to be remembered. They will remain on your device for a pre-defined period of time or until they are deleted.  Other similar technologies including pixels, tags, web beacons or local storage also store and retrieve data on a device and are similar to cookies. When we refer to ‘cookies’ in this policy and our Privacy Notice we are referring to both cookies and similar technologies.

We use cookies on our website as they help to distinguish you from other users.  This helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our website and also allows us to improve our website.  Some of the information will be aggregated or statistical, which means that we will not be able to identify you individually.

We may use cookies (pixels, to be exact) that allow us to see whether news updates and other marketing communications you subscribe to have been viewed and read.

For further information on cookies generally, including how to control and manage them, please see  or

Consent to use cookies and changing settings

We will ask for your permission to place cookies on your device, except where they are strictly necessary for us to provide you with a service that you have requested.  You can provide your consent to the use of non-necessary cookies by selecting ‘Allow All Cookies’ on our cookies information notice or by accessing the privacy preference centre on our website. The privacy preference centre is accessible in the cookies information notice that appears at the bottom of our website when you visit our website for the first time. It can also be accessed by clicking the ‘Cookie Settings’ option at the bottom of our website.

Within our privacy preference centre you can signify your consent to certain categories of non-necessary cookies by clicking the ‘Allow All Cookies’ option or by ticking the checkboxes for specific categories of cookies and saving your preferences by clicking ‘Allow Necessary Cookies’. You can withdraw any consent to the use of cookies through the same functionality (i.e. by unticking the checkboxes and saving your preferences by clicking ‘Allow Necessary Cookies’ or by clicking the ‘Deny’ option to withdraw your consent to all non-necessary cookies).  It may be necessary to refresh the website page for the updated settings to take effect.

You can view your consent preferences at any time by clicking on the ‘CO’ button at the lower left-hand corner of our website.

If you do not want to accept any cookies, you may be able to change your browser or device settings to deny or accept individual or all cookies (including those which are strictly necessary to the services requested).

Our use of cookies

We use the following categories of cookies:

  • Necessary Cookies. These cookies are strictly necessary for our website to function and cannot be switched off.  You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of our website will not work as a result.  These cookies are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, navigating through pages or filling in forms. 
  • Statistics Cookies. These cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our website.  They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around our website.  These cookies collect information in a way that does not directly identify anyone.  If you do not allow these cookies we will not know when you have visited our website and will not be able to monitor its performance.
  • Marketing Cookies: These are set through our website by our advertising or social media partners.  They may be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant adverts on other websites.  If you do not allow these cookies, you should experience less targeted advertising.  Our website may use third-party plugins from Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.  The providers of these plugins may use targeting cookies or other technologies, for example, to track your online browsing habits or identify you as a member when you interact with our website.
