Data Protection Solicitors

International data protection solicitors

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

The coming into force of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in May 2018 represented a major change in the law on data protection.

It is important for individuals to understand their rights and for those processing personal data to understand their obligations under GDPR.  The law has become more complex (for example in relation to the legal basis for storing data and how data should be dealt with) and the penalties for non-compliance have increased (the current maximum is 20 million Euros or 4% of annual global turnover, whichever is the greater).

GDPR does not only affect businesses 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.

At GSC Solicitors we advise our clients on the best strategy to achieve their objectives and to comply with the constantly evolving regulatory regime. Speak to us about:

  • Data subject access requests
  • Rights & privacy
  • Data protection issues
  • GDPR
  • Rights to be forgotten
  • Removing data from web searches.

‘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.”
