GDPR

The EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) came into direct legal effect in all EU member states, including Ireland, on 25 May 2018.  We are leading experts in the area of data protection law.  We have advised private and public sector companies on the full spectrum of data protection compliance and enforcement issues.  We have also acted in many of the leading data protection cases to come before the Courts.  A number of our partners are CIPP/E certified (Certified International Privacy Professional – Europe).

Data

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 are also advisers to the Office of the Information Commissioner.

Partners Anne BatemanSean McElligottDamien Young and Eoghan Doyle 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.

Technology

In 2022 it is difficult to think of a business that does not rely on, or is not impacted by, technology.

Our uniquely tech savvy team combines qualifications in law and IT engineering – led by Sean McElligott who previously worked for 13+ years in ICT before qualifying as solicitor, thus uniquely providing us with the ability to grasp the technical detail as well as legal aspects of any project.

We provide legal solutions to a broad range of public and private sector clients across all areas of technology. Our experience includes:

  • advising on some of the largest public sector enterprise ICT implementations in the country;
  • advising on cloud deployments and outsourcing generally;
  • data protection issues, GDPR compliance, and international data transfers;
  • data breaches and cyber-security issues; and
  • carrying out technology due diligence on mergers, acquisitions and corporate transactions.
