Data, Privacy and Technology

We know this area of law, inside out.

quotes This is a fantastic firm to work with; the lawyers have the knowledge and dedication of a large firm, with the approachability and reason of a boutique, specialist firm. Chambers Europe, 2016

We have advised the Data Protection Commissioner since 2002 on a range of data protection compliance and enforcement issues.  We also advise many clients in the private and public sectors on data protection and privacy issues, as well as on freedom of information.  The firm was recently appointed as advisers to the Office of the Information Commissioner.


Partners Anne Bateman, Ann Henry and Damien Young are all exceptionally skilled and experienced in this area and through their dedication and determination they will ease you through the most complicated of issues.



Many of today’s data, privacy and information issues are technology-focused, and we find that it is often necessary for clients to consider technology and data issues hand-in-hand.


Our technology team is particularly strong in this area, having advised on ICT projects involving personal data, including establishment of patient databases for pharmaceutical companies, collection and storage of personal information by companies online and via apps and social media accounts, and advising on appropriate privacy policies and data compliance issues for technology and media companies.
