Data is central to all our lives. Every business, public authority and organisation, collects ever more data about consumers, citizens, contacts and employees – and that volume of data is being assessed in ever faster and more sophisticated ways. Protecting and leveraging data is already central to the success of many businesses and it lies at the core of our data practice.
We help businesses use data throughout their developmental life cycle: building their databases and extracting full value from them, reinforcing their cyber-security position and defending claims and regulatory investigations. We act for investors and sellers, who recognise the value of the data.
We also support individuals who are looking to enforce their data rights, whether it's a claim that a business has exploited personal data in breach of the law, or an individual facing criminal sanctions as a result of claims made against their use of data.
Central to everything we do is understanding the true value of data. Unless we understand the moral and economic pressures on data governance, we cannot properly advise on the law.
We have a full-service data offering, covering litigation, private client and corporate needs, and working together with non-lawyer data protection, data science and cyber experts.
