Our lawyers have extensive experience in advising clients from various sectors (e.g. healthcare, financial, IT, hospitality, retail, e-commerce, employment, real estate, industrial, etc) on legal matters pertaining to personal data protection and privacy, with comprehensive know-how in effectively addressing, documenting and managing the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), e-privacy, and national data protection frameworks.
