Privacy and Data Protection

Helping businesses to maintain data protection compliance

In a world of rapidly evolving technology – from Big Data and the Internet of Things to AI – maintaining privacy and data protection compliance is becoming ever more challenging.

While some countries are modelling their new legislation on the principles which underlie the GDPR, others have developed their own approaches which give differing levels of protection to individuals.

This has a significant impact on the way companies need to run their businesses, particularly those with international interests, raising questions over where to hold data, what data to retain and what contracts to hold.

To address these uncertainties, Jurit’s privacy and data protection practice provides practical advice on the law concerning privacy and the processing of personal data and how to manage the differing demands of international regulation.

We bring the full weight of the many years’ experience we have in data protection and privacy issues to bear, to provide you with true experts in their field who will bring a commercial approach to your privacy and data protection needs.

Our practice is headed by Quentin Archer, a leading figure in the world of privacy and data protection, recognised by Chambers as one of three “senior states persons” in this field (2019).
