We advise start-ups, established businesses and public organisations on a full range of data protection law, confidentiality law, information law and cyber-security issues.

You need to be confident you are meeting your obligations under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in respect of client, customer and employee personal information and have appropriate policies, procedures and cyber-security measures in place.

Our charity and social business team specialises in advising not-for-profit organisations on GDPR and information law issues.

We can:

  • advise on data protection and data processing obligations, including changes introduced by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in May 2018
  • prepare privacy and cookies notices and internal data policies
  • provide training on handling personal information for staff and board members
  • assist with cyber-security policies and responding to data breaches

Our specialist solicitors can also assist with the protection of confidential information and know how to ensure that valuable information is not exploited. We regularly advise on confidentiality agreements, non-disclosure agreements (NDAs) and confidentiality breaches.

We regularly assist public authorities with discharging their obligations under the Freedom of Information Act and advise individuals on exercising their Freedom of Information Act rights.
