GDPR and Data Protection Solicitors

Protecting data – whether it is employee data, customer data or any other individual’s data – is an essential component of running a successful and responsible business. Fail, and you could receive hefty fines, face legal action and lose the trust of the people that matter most to your business.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) 2018 and the regulations made under it protect the processing of personal data. The Information Commissioner has increased powers and is likely to enforce the provisions of the GDPR and Data Protection Act. That is why every business and organisation needs to be aware of its obligations in regard to the collection, handling and storing of personal data.

At Glanvilles, our Commercial team can provide expert advice on all aspects of Data Protection law, including the various guidance notes issued by the Information Commissioner to ensure your organisation meets its obligations under the law.

We advise all types of business, from start-ups to large established regional and national companies. We particularly specialise in helping entrepreneurs and start-ups successfully get their businesses off the ground – we can provide all the advice you need to comply with your legal obligations and minimise risk as you enter new markets.

Our Chichester team are also happy to provide a free 30-minute consultation to any entrepreneurs, business start-ups or early stage businesses on the first Thursday of every calendar month; email Scott Richardson at scott.richardson@glanvilles.co.uk for more information.
