Data Protection

Legal services involving data protection matters.

The collection and processing of data is a massive and growing industry. Almost all modern businesses engage in electronic marketing to some extent by using personal data, so ensuring that it is stored correctly and permissions are kept up to date is more vital than ever for anyone.

Our specialist solicitors are very experienced in dealing with data protection breaches and successfully representing clients before the enforcement authorities and in tribunals.

Whilst renowned nationally in this sector, the team have developed excellent close working relationships with many of the individual enforcement officers. They are often on first name terms and in regular telephone contact to discuss and resolve cases.

They also provide advice to avoid falling foul of the regulators, which includes reviewing policies and procedures, privacy notices, supplier contracts and providing staff training to ensure compliance with the Data Protection Act 2018 and the General Data Protection Regulation 2016.
