Data Protection Advice to Help You Protect Your Business

Our experience in the education, technologyhealthcare and local government sectors means that we frequently come across unusual and challenging data protection and information law issues.

Our data protection solicitors provide specialist advice on a range of information law and compliance issues, including:


Legal Support with Information Commissioner Complaints & Data Protection Breaches

The Information Commissioner, who regulates data protection compliance, has the power to fine organisations up to £500,000 for serious breaches of the Data Protection Act. We have considerable expertise and experience in helping our clients manage Information Commissioner investigations and have a proven track record of avoiding the more serious penalties, such as large fines.


Subject Access Requests

An increasing number of individuals are exercising their right to request information from organisations under the Data Protection Act (for example, employees may request information from their employer). Often, individuals use this right to obtain information which might help fuel a complaint against the organisation.  Recent case law suggests that organisations do not always have to supply information where the purpose of the request is to fuel litigation and complaints.  We can advise you on how to manage these requests in a way that protects your interests while still complying with data protection law.


Data Sharing and Security

We advise on many common data protection compliance issues, such as information sharing, CCTV, marketing issues, overseas transfers, and data security.


Freedom of Information Law

We also advise on freedom of information law (including the Freedom of Information Act and the Environmental Information Regulations).


Data Protection Policies and Policy Templates

As well as specialist data protection advice, we can also offer you a number of data protection legal services including; training, audits, template policies and procedures (including template fair processing statements and document retention policies).

We provide data protection advice nationally via our offices based in London, Bristol and Birmingham.
