Our specialist solicitors advise businesses regarding the correct usage and handling of data under data protection legislation in order to avoid incorrect data usage and the associated penalties, along with any damage to public perception and brand image that might be caused by a data protection breach becoming public.

Our specialist solicitors also regularly lecture on data protection issues and regularly provide staff training to our clients across a variety of sectors training staff on what they should and, more importantly, should not be doing when handling personal data. At the end of the day, the weak link in any data protection policy or system is usually the employees actually handing the data and staff training is therefore as important, if not more so, than an actual data protection policy.

Gorvins Approach to Data Protection

Our solicitors work with businesses to implement systems in compliance with data protection regulations and will draft tailored data protection policies concerning the storage, usage and disclosure of data as well as providing practical real-life training for employees so they understand their organisation’s data protection policy and the key role they play in minimising the risk of a data breach.

Our team can also advise on subject access requests made by individuals (often ex-employees or parties involved in a dispute with the organisation concerned) so that the response can be conducted in accordance with the requirements under the relevant legislation.

Where data security has been breached, our team can advise on communications with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) and on steps that can be taken to limit any negative effects on your business. We also work with public and private sector clients to deal with freedom of information requests and complaints to the ICO.
