We believe that data management should be a top priority for all businesses. In today's information economy, data is the new oil. A business' ability to transfer and use customer data and other information is both integral to the day-to-day running of a company and key to profitability and success. With the introduction of new and more stringent data privacy laws, it is important now more than ever that businesses are fully informed and fully compliant.
We have a global cross-practice group of lawyers that specialise in data law, including data protection, privacy, data management, cyber security and information security issues. We are set apart by our experience in litigation, enforcement and regulatory investigation, as well as and relationships with data protection authorities.
