Privacy & Data

Compliance with data protection law is  essential, but lawful use also can bring significant competitive advantages that are critical  for organisational success in today’s digital (and often borderless data) world.

The collection of data about customers, employees, prospects and competitors is something every organisation needs to do. It’s necessary for business operations, but data is also a key asset, and one that can bring significant benefits.

Complying with the law that governs how you use data is a key consideration for businesses, as the UK now adopts a more prescriptive privacy framework than we’ve seen historically.

We take a pragmatic, business-orientated approach to data protection and privacy advice, which seeks to solve issues, not complicate matters. Our team members have extensive experience working with a wide range of organisations from start-ups through to large enterprises and household brands.

Our breadth of experience means that we can offer a full service across data protection and privacy matters including:

  • Electronic Marketing - Advising on E-marketing and data protection laws to ensure compliance in sending marketing and service communications to consumers.
  • Website & App Compliance – Audit of website and app functionality to determine consent and notification requirements required for the business to effectively use customer data.
