Lewis Silkin’s data protection and freedom of information practice advises private companies, public bodies and individuals on regulatory compliance and commercial opportunities in this key area.
Data in all its forms is the new currency of business and society. To reflect this we have created a specialist data protection & freedom of information team comprising lawyers who work across a diverse mix of legal services and sectors including technology, marketing services, employment, social housing and schools & academies.
Exploiting data whilst ensuring that personal information is protected is a constant balancing act; it requires a technical, pragmatic approach based on experience, specific sector expertise and an up-to-date knowledge of recent developments and industry guidance.
Our team is able to provide practical, integrated, solution-based advice to both public and private sector clients. It also advises individuals on the misuse of their personal data, as well as how to make and deal with subject access and freedom of information requests.
We frequently advise on global and pan-European data protection transfers and the use of data in the context of corporate transactions. We are used to offering value-added project management services, whether in relation to smaller or larger compliance projects.
