Data Protection

The importance of managing personal data cannot be underestimated.

The Information Commissioner can impose fines of up to £500,000 for misuse of personal data.

We help businesses identify the strengths and weaknesses of their data protection policies.


We provide particular focus on third parties who process data on our clients’ behalf to ensure that processes which are one step removed from our clients control are still managed with success.

We have experience of dealing with disputes over personal data, including those arising from subject access requests and have successfully defended businesses under investigation by the ICO.
