Data Protection & Privacy

The issue of data protection affects everyone, from individuals whose personal data is being processed to businesses who are processing personal data.

The provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), as incorporated into UK law, continue to set the standard for data protection.

It is important for individuals to understand their rights and for those processing personal data to understand their obligations under GDPR, particularly as the penalties for non-compliance can be up to £17.5 million or 4% of annual global turnover, whichever is the greater).

The GDPR provisions does not only affect the use of data within the UK or EU or businesses operating in the UK or trading within the EU. If a business is trading outside the EU, but is processing personal data of an individual in the EU, GDPR will also be relevant.  Similarly, transfers of personal data from the UK or EU to other countries are subject to strict controls.

At GSC Solicitors we advise our clients on the best strategy to achieve their objectives, whether to ensure that their personal data is protected or to comply with the constantly evolving regulatory regime for controlling and processing the personal data of third parties. Speak to us about:

  • Data subject access requests

‘A small firm which punches well above its weight’ GSC Solicitors LLP undertook leasing transactions for several blue-chip corporate tenants, particularly in the media sector. It acted for a number of hotel owners regarding the acquisition and development of new hotels.

“We have found the service excellent, and it is for this reason we have continued to use GSC. The key strengths for us have been a commercial approach to deals that is often missing from solicitors, and a personal service based on a knowledge of us and our needs and long-term plans.”

“The main positive comparison we have noted from GSC is the personal touch and commercial acumen.”

“We have often used different legal firms for IP and other work in the past, but GSC’s commercial approach and professionalism, coupled with the excellent working relationship we have built up over a number of years makes it our preferred choice.”

“As a Financial Advisor I have been personally using and recommending GSC for over thirty years. I have referred clients of mine to them and only ever been thanked for the recommendation, which should convey the confidence I have in the individuals, and the firm.”

“Great result today. Just wanted to say thank you for your continued hard work in fighting our corner on this case. You have both been amazing. Michael incredible support and good ideas.”
