Privacy & Data protection

Legislation in virtually all jurisdictions has established new data protection standards that apply to activities in all sectors and to businesses large and small. Every entity that deals with data must appreciate the changes in their operating environment and how the law defines the specific roles and responsibilities of each participant in the field.

We take a client-orientated approach to these issues based on a thorough review of the situation, and we guide our clients through the process of identifying requirements and implementing solutions step-by-step.

We assist clients in mapping and implementing the processes required for handling personal data and assess their current practices against current legal and GDPR data protection requirements. We help our clients to bring their business into line with the applicable standards and ensure their on-going compliance. Our recommendations are not only appropriate but are specifically tailored to our clients’ individual needs and the needs of their industry.

Our legal services include a review of our clients’ existing contractual frameworks to ensure that they are in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.

We provide our clients with comprehensive advice and assistance on all data protection issues and, when required, guidance on handling trade secrets in the client's profession or industry including:

  • Drafting specific data protection legal opinions.
  • Assessing the current status of the client’s GDPR compliance processes.
  • Implementing risk mitigation measures.
  • Reviewing and drafting internal forms and procedures to comply with the GDPR requirements.
  • Expanding the Data Protection Impact Assessment procedures based on the type of data processed.
  • Drafting internal IT security policies, particularly about the use of the client's IT resources.
