Our data protection solicitors advise on all aspects of data protection law.
A particular strength is that we advise on all areas of information law rather than just focusing on data protection. We advise on privacy, confidentiality, misuse of private information and the legal implications concerning the monetisation of personal data.
This holistic approach helps to ensure that we provide the best possible advice to our clients. For example, when advising a client on the risks associated with a data breach, we can advise them regarding the risks of claims under privacy laws in addition to data protection legislation.
The team also advise on freedom of information law, including the Freedom of Information Act and the Environmental Information Regulations.
Clients in many of our key sectors, such as education, charities, healthcare, pharma, public sector and technology, have specific, complex, and often urgent data protection law needs. This means that our data protection solicitors are used to advising on complicated data protection matters and that our advice is always sector specific. We provide pragmatic, commercial, and cost effective solutions.
Developments in technology make it easier to use personal data on a large scale in ever more complex ways, particularly in an online environment or technology focused environment. We work closely with our Technology Team to support our technology clients and we advise on high risk areas such as the use of personal data in relation to adtech and real time bidding.
The Data Protection team recently supported the Higher Education sector to survey universities in relation to student vaccinations.
