As experts in information management compliance, we have a proven track record of advising on complex projects and privacy issues.

We provide businesses with full service data protection and privacy advice across all industry sectors. Our expertise includes professional and banking secrecy, privilege (legal and non-legal) and related areas of confidentiality obligations ensuring a comprehensive view of information management issues and risk mitigation.

As experts in information management compliance, we have a proven track record of advising on complex, multi-jurisdictional projects and the full range of domestic, international and cross-border privacy issues. The team has developed strong links with regulators with insights into likely future regulatory developments.

Our data protection and privacy specialists comprise experienced lawyers from a range of disciplines, including regulatory, corporate, IP, employment, and business & technology sourcing. We closely work with multinationals to help them comply with data privacy and security regulatory obligations, and to develop practical cross-border data transfer solutions. We carry out cross-border data privacy surveys, both to review existing processes and procedures, and to help set up new ventures. We have significant experience in designing, drafting, reviewing and updating general corporate group and HR policies, and we provide support in particular with whistle-blowing, employee telephone, internet and email use, customer data, cross-border data transfers and data protection consents.
