Now more than ever, data protection is a key compliance concern for all businesses. With the tightening of legislation that came with the Data Protection Act 2018 and UK GDPR there also developed a greater awareness of privacy regulation and an increase in enforcement action in the UK by the Information Commissioner’s Office.
As well as preparing Privacy Policies with our own bespoke GDPR-compliant drafting, we also advise our clients on internal data policies and data security processes, on subject access requests and confidentiality.
Alongside our commercial litigation team, we also have expertise in cyber-crime matters, and the regulatory and legal issues that come with them, including third party and insurance claims.
Examples of experience
- Drafting Privacy Policies for a wide range of businesses, in each case with provisions tailored to the client’s sector.
- Advising a real estate finance lender on a data subject access request from a borrower engaged in vexatious litigation.
- Advising an employer on email data breaches.
- Preparing an agreement for joint data controllers.
