Compliant and effective data management is essential in today's increasingly complex and regulated environment.
Whilst data protection law is a key aspect of advising on how data can be gathered, held and used, it must now be seen in the context of wider rights and obligations. Accordingly, our expertise also extends to providing advice on privacy, confidentiality, trade secrets, legal privilege, copyright and database rights and network and information security. Our clients therefore benefit from a more holistic approach offered by our Data team.
Our clients also benefit from the application of that advice to a wide range of industry sectors including: financial services, insurance, outsourcing, utilities, the built environment, hotels and leisure, marketing and advertising, publishing and retail.
Through our network of preferred firms built up over many years, we help clients work with regulators and local laws around the world.
