Data Protection Law

Data Protection Law

We all operate in a data-driven world and as technology develops fast, it has never been more important to keep data secure and compliant with the latest data protection law.

Our experienced data protection solicitors can make sure that you have the right agreements, policies and in-house expertise to keep data safe, comply with regulations, and fully protect you and your organisation.

What are the key data protection laws in the UK?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Data Protection Act 2018 are the key laws governing data protection issues in the UK. Our data protection lawyers can advise you on getting the right policies, processes and documents in place to make sure you are compliant with these data protection laws.

What types of businesses are subject to data protection rules?

If you are a business or employer processing personal data in the UK (or transferring it out of the UK), you are subject to GDPR and the Data Protection Act and have data protection responsibilities. This may be the personal data of your employees, customers or other data subjects.

How can we help with your data protection compliance?

Our expertise in data protection law includes:

  • Undertaking data health checks – we’ll thoroughly review your internal data processing systems to assess your current compliance with data protection law and advise on solutions to any gaps, including where data protection impact assessments may be needed;
  • Data Protection Policies and Procedures – we can review and prepare a range of privacy policies tailored to your needs including internal data protection policies, website privacy policies and employee privacy notices which comply with the data protection principles and rules set out in GDPR;
  • Sharing data with other organisations– we can draft data sharing and processing agreements that are compliant with data protection law;
  • Managing data breaches – we offer advice on how to handle data breaches, including putting in place any remedial action that is required to deal with a data breach and advising you on when it is necessary to make a report to the Information Commissioner’s Office;
  • Individuals’ data rights – we provide support dealing with requests from individuals to exercise their data privacy rights, including subject access requests;
  • Employment data protection – our employment team can advise your organisation or your data protection officer on their obligations under applicable data protection laws, including amending contracts of employment for compliance purposes;
  • Training – we can deliver both in-person and webinar data protection training tailored to the needs of your organisation.

Our data protection solicitors work in our corporate, commercial, litigation and employment teams and are able to advise you on data protection compliance alongside your other business needs, such as during the course of corporate transactions or disputes.
