Laws surrounding Data Protection can be extraordinarily complex, which is why we have a dedicated team of specialist Data Protection Solicitors on hand to offer guidance and advice on Data Protection Law.
In both the public and private sectors, companies are in charge of collecting, handling and processing personal data. It is their responsibility to ensure that personal data is protected and remains private.
Whether you are looking for Data Protection legal advice regarding the laws and regulations or your policies and procedures, we provide expert services to meet your specific business requirements.
Initial Telephone Discussion
Data is one of the most valuable assets a business owns. Any incidents or breaches of data can have disastrous consequences for a business and its reputation.
Whilst our focus is to ensure that your company avoids any Data Protection issues, we can also assist with:
- Ensuring compliance with the guidance published by the Information Commissioner’s Office
- Assisting with Data Subject Access Requests
- Conducting data audits to discover any potential Data Protection risks
- Contractual Agreements with Data Protection clauses to protect your business
- Privacy Notices for websites, employees, clients, prospective employees, contractors, consultants and apprentices
- Data Protection advice on business obligations relating to the handling of customer data, third party data, employee data, recruitment and monitoring practices
- Data retention advice on when data should be destroyed
- Drafting data security policies and procedures, Data Protection Handbooks and Privacy Notices
- Litigation and representation in Data Protection related Court proceedings
- Providing advice on data breaches
Our team will provide you with the tools you need to effectively manage data to comply with industry rules and regulations.
The UKGDPR applies to any organisation that has control over personal data and any organisation that processes personal data on behalf of any other organisation.
Every business must have a plan of how they are going to deal with personal data as well as being registered with the Information Commissioners Office.
Our Data Protection Solicitors can assist with a multitude of UKGDPR issues, including initial UKGDPR audits and reviewing privacy notices, policies, procedures and contracts. We can also advise on the steps you need to take to comply with the UKGDPR regulations, as well as training, and incident response support.
Dealing with a Data Breach
Breaches of the Data Protection Act 2018 or failure to comply with UKGDPR can have disastrous consequences on organisations, including financial implications and damage to the reputation of a business.
We have experienced Solicitors who can provide you with the advice and guidance that you will need to be able to comply with all Data Protection rules.
Our team are also able to assist with drafting restrictive covenants to help ensure that your business data is protected and to prevent former employees from breaching confidentiality.
Businesses entrust employees with sensitive commercial information. Whilst in most cases confidentiality is respected, problems can occur when an employee leaves a business, joins a competitor firm, or sets up a similar company of their own. A restrictive covenant can be the disincentive a former employee needs to keep your company data confidential. The right clauses in Employment Contracts can restrict an employee’s ability to compete, use confidential information, or have certain dealings with your clients, suppliers, distributors or staff once they have left their job.
Our Solicitors and Barristers can draft restrictive covenants which are appropriate, reasonable and stand the best possible chance of being held enforceable by a Court.
Where possible we will offer a fixed fee, so you will know what the costs are from the start. For more complex or uncertain projects, we will provide you with an estimate of the likely fees involved and keep you updated throughout the matter.
