Data Protection & GDPR

Due to the nature of how law firms operate, the management, control and protection of data is an essential element of a firm compliance and regulation strategy. Law Firms manage and control a significant amount of personal data and must have appropriate data protection policies in place to adhere to the requirements of The Data Protection Act 1988 and The General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (GDPR).

A firm that fails to have the appropriate policies and procedures in place to manage, control and protect the data of their clients and staff will not only breach the legislative requirements but also the code of conduct rendering them exposed to breaches of legislation and regulation.

Our Services

The decision on whether to appoint a Data Protection Officer (DPO) is one which a firm should consider seriously, and the Law Society have issued a useful guidance note on this. 

However, it remains best practice to appoint a DPO or at least a senior person in the business to manage and control data protection issues.

For a Law Firm to ensure they fully comply with the requirement of GDPR and The Data Protection Act they should implement and approach and policies that includes:

1.       A data protection policy that details how the firm protects, uses and manages data

2.       A data protection notice that is issued to clients confirming how the data is used, protected and processed.

3.       Training for staff on the firm’s policies and procedures

4.       Consent (Positive opt in) for the use of data

5.       A Data (GDPR) annual audit to establish the effectiveness of the firm’s data protection approach.

We provide both packaged and individual solutions that directly add value into the firms we work with. You can download brochures on these services below:
