Privacy and Data Protection
Our data protection group delivers tailor-made solutions for our client’s needs in the area of privacy and data-protection. Our team is comprised of highly skilled and qualified privacy professionals, all of whom are members of the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP) – recognised as the world’s largest information privacy association. Some members of our department are also accredited by the IAPP as being certified in the field of European data protection law (CIPP/E).
We provide support to some of Israel’s top tech players for all of their privacy needs – planning, building and executing programmes, conducting internal audits, and reporting to boards of directors on various matters related to data and privacy. In addition, we regularly advise on complex multi-jurisdictional data transfer arrangements, perform due diligence exercises, and assist with the M&A process. We have particular expertise and experience in aiding our clients in their interactions with European data protection authorities, in particular the UK’s ICO.
Being qualified English solicitors with strong backgrounds in other disciplines of law such as corporate, commercial, IP and M&A, we bring to the table a unique perspective when approaching any matter involving factors from other fields of law. As a result, we can take a holistic view of any of our clients issues, giving us a clear and critical advantage over many of our peers the field. Our team serves as retained adviser on data and privacy issues for one of the UK’s largest consulting firms, as well as other companies across the technology, charities, and “traditional” corporate businesses in navigating their unique challenges applying European privacy regulation to their day-to-day operations.
