Data Protection & Privacy

Members of Chambers act and advise on civil matters related to data protection, information, and privacy law.  This includes claims arising under the Data Protection Act 2018, for misuse of confidential and private information, and the General Data Protection Regulation (EU 2016/679) (“GDPR”).

Since the enactment of the GDPR, members of Chambers have advised large internet platforms, software developers, hospitals, insurers, and providers of financial services in relation to their obligations, and have provided privacy risk assessments and data protection strategies.  Members have also advised on the new ‘right to be forgotten’.

Members of Chambers have particular expertise in relation to claims arising from data breaches, hacking/security vulnerabilities  and data breach notification, with several members having a background in computer science, networking and related technologies.
