In the world of technology, data is a key business asset, allowing you to better understand, and interact with, your clients, and to develop new services and products. However, whatever your company’s size, from start-up to multinational, the collection and use of data – particularly personal data – presents significant legal issues. Getting it wrong can have huge financial and reputational implications.

We will work closely with you to help you to lawfully collect and exploit data, and unlock its full potential to achieve your business goals. At the same time, we can help you ensure you have the right policies, processes and security in place to manage the risk of data breaches, misuse, theft and hacking.

Our specialist Data Protection team works at the intersection of technology and law, and can offer you practical advice on all data issues – from complex issues surrounding big data, artificial intelligence, IoT, cloud services, ad tech, blockchain, wearable technology, and augmented and virtual reality, to more straightforward data protection compliance.
