AN EXPERIENCED commercial lawyer with specialist expertise in the education and transport sectors has joined Ward Hadaway.
Thanks to technology, information can be created, copied and disseminated with ease. This has led to exponential growth in the quantity of personal and official information that organisations have to manage.
Public bodies are faced with the twin legal obligations of releasing official information and protecting personal and confidential information. It gets particularly tricky where those obligations clash.
With significant financial penalties for serious breaches, failing to take proper precautions when it comes to data protection can be an expensive business.
Add in the reputational damage that data breaches and failure to release official information can attract, and you have a recipe for disaster.
That’s why bringing in our information law team could be one of the smartest moves you’ll ever make.
Combining legal expertise with commercial awareness, we love to find practical solutions to keep you on the right side of the law.
Our services include advising on:
- Data protection audits
- Data protection compliance policies and toolkits
- Database acquisition
- Information Commissioner’s assessments and investigations
- Information requests
- Information sharing or processing arrangements
- Information Tribunal and court actions
- International transfers and multinational agreements
