Data Protection

In an increasingly regulated environment, businesses need to manage their data in order to manage their reputational and financial risks.

Across our international network, our data protection practitioners advise leading corporations and financial institutions on all aspects of compliance with data privacy law.

We carry out cross-border data privacy surveys for clients, both to review their existing processes and procedures and to help set up new ventures.  With significant experience of designing, drafting, reviewing and updating internal policies as well as 3rd party contracts, we support clients with data collection and consents; cross-border data transfers; data monetization and ethics; liability and penalties; Privacy by design; automated data processing and profiling; and interactions with the relevant data protection authorities. We also advise clients on the implications of freedom of information legislation, how to mitigate risk and the potential to use the legislation for competitive advantage. 

Our team draws on specialists from a variety of complementary disciplines including employment and benefits, financial services, intellectual property, outsourcing, regulatory and regulatory litigation to deliver a comprehensive approach to our clients' data protection needs.

With strong working relationships with regulators across our network, we have developed a nuanced understanding of the attitude of regulators and to assist clients with risk-based analysis.  This means we provide our clients with a quick and efficient response – regardless of time zone.  Our global presence, together with the extensive experience of our integrated international data protection group, sets us apart from many of our competitors.  We have detailed experience in each jurisdiction, which brings valuable insight to managing the differing legal systems, cultures and regulatory regimes.

We are active participants in the privacy community, including the International Association of Privacy Professionals and regular speakers at industry events as well as contributing to industry publications.
