    Data Protection & Privacy Legal Services

Every organisation needs to address data protection, confidentiality, information security, cyber risks, data breaches and freedom of information in their compliance and risk management policies and procedures.

Data protection and cyber issues have proliferated over recent years. Every organisation, regardless of shape and size, needs to address data protection - not only to help manage risk, but also to ensure that the full value of personal data can be realised.

Organisations need to be awake to emerging areas of law and policy that overlap with data protection in areas such as Artificial Intelligence, cyber-resilience, online harms and digital ID. 

Our data protection law expertise

Whether you are a growing or established company, we can provide you with international contentious and non-contentious advice that exceeds straight-forward legal services. We can add value to your business through multi-jurisdictional project management to ensure that you are up to the minute with the latest legal and regulatory developments that could impact the way you do business, and consultancy services to train and educate you so that you are complying with global laws and regulations.

We provide commercial and strategic advice on a range of data protection related matters, including email marketing rules, data breaches, online tracking, international data transfers, data sharing arrangements, and data subject rights requests, in addition to assisting clients with their data protection compliance programmes. We are also highly experienced in working on cross-border matters with experienced data protection colleagues and local counsels around the world.

Where regulations and obligations evolve, we keep abreast of the latest data protection requirements, and can give you practical and up-to-date advice on everything from data retention and email marketing issues to the handling of sensitive information and data transfers, both locally and internationally.

We often review the data handling procedures adopted by HR departments, including the standard forms used for applications, references, appraisals and other employment related matters. We work closely with our corporate and commercial colleagues to ensure data protection due diligence is addressed during mergers and acquisitions, outsourcing agreements, or other transfer of undertakings.

You can expect co-ordinated and competitively priced international services, supported by a breadth of knowledge and passion for what we do.
