Data Protection

As industries like technology, media and telecoms have transformed over the past twenty years and the interconnected world in which we live in has grown, our approach to privacy and data has transformed in line with this. The introduction of GDPR in 2018 represented an historic change in data protection law. The regulation of data has expanded and resulted in complex and often inconsistent privacy and data protection standards across the world.

Data protection is a complex and constantly changing area of law for companies of every size and in every sector. Our lawyers have extensive experience advising clients on data protection and privacy issues, from start-ups looking to get their house in order to global corporations with complex data transfer challenges.

Some of the areas we advise and support businesses and legal teams on include:

• GDPR compliance
• Data privacy audits, policies and training
• International data transfers
• Data processor agreements
• Subject access requests

• Data security and breach management
• Privacy and Electronic Communications
