Data Protection Advice

Legal Counsel services for you and your business

Pragmatic and commercially focused legal advice and support to start ups and established businesses.

Data Protection

Data can be one of the biggest assets of your company and yet, if not managed well, it can be one of the biggest liabilities. A good understanding of legal implications of data protection issues will mean that you do not fall foul of your obligations which were introduced by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

The level of penalties, that your business could be subject to if it is not compliant, means that data protection issues cannot be ignored, especially given the enhanced rights and obligations of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Drawing on both data protection law and years of commercial experience, we provide dedicated support and strategic advice to a wide range of clients, which include entrepreneurial start-ups as well established  small & medium organisations

Get in touch for practical, jargon free, commercially viable legal advice. 

Data Audit

An audit provides an assessment of whether your organisation is following good data protection practice. Audits play a key role in assisting organisations in understanding and meeting their data protection obligations.

Data Mapping

To comply with the GDPR, organisations need to identify the data they hold, and assess privacy risks, its sensitivity and its necessary treatment to establish what steps it must take to demonstrate compliance.

Privacy by Design

Analyse your data processes, existing controls, collection and handling, workflows and technology architecture and work with us to design a natural workflow that ensures balance between performance requirements and regulatory obligations.

Policies & Procedures

Get all your policies and procedures in place and compliant following the audit and data mapping, or get our bundles that allow you to carry out your own audits and implement compliance procedures internally.

Project Management

Deliver a suitable technical and legal structure for your business or project that addresses data privacy requirements by reviewing and implementing Data Protection Impact Assessments.


We provide bespoke training for DPO’s and staff on GDPR compliance. Get access to our industry specific training or tailor made training for your organisation.

Specialist Advice & Support

How We Can Help

Starting or growing a business can be a daunting time, but it does not have to be difficult. As a business owner you will have so much to think about and so often legal  considerations get pushed to the back burner and only revisited when serious issues arise, causing you and your family stress & anxiety, unnecessary diversion of valuable time and resources and unexpected expense. 

We help businesses become and stay compliant with their obligations under the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).

Our Fees

Our fees vary depending on your circumstances and your needs. We prefer to work on a fixed fee basis so as to give our clients the peace of mind.

Where the circumstances are unpredictable we may offer you a time based fee arrangement, whereby we charge you for the worked carried out at an agreed hourly rate.

Where we charge you for the services at an hourly rate, we may also offer to cap your fees. i.e. whereby you can spend less, but never more than an agreed amount.

Flexible and Transparent

Whatever the fee arrangement, we pride ourselves in being flexible and transparent with our fees  and these will always be agreed from the onset so there are no hidden surprises. 

How We Work

We aim to get to know you and your business. That is why our first consultation is always free.

We work on building long term relationships that are based on integrity, honest advice and dedicated support so that we are able to help you when you need it the most. 

It is important to us that you feel comfortable and confident in our ability to take care of your business well that is why we will always go above and beyond to ensure that your business is protected.

We will assess your needs and will work together to find the best solution for you and your business.


Where you need ongoing support, we find that the best fee arrangement is a retainer, whereby for an agreed monthly fee you have access to unlimited legal advice and support. Get in touch to discuss your requirements in more detail.

Why Us

What sets us apart from other lawyers is that we know what it feels like. We will work to understand your business, your goals and your concerns and will work tirelessly to address them. We do not do hard sell. We believe in long term working relationships where we can witness our clients’ business growth.

We will always aim to provide you with practical, jargon free, commercially viable legal advice. 


Falling foul of employment law is very easy and can be costly to employers. Sometimes you may not need our assistance and a chat will be enough. However if you need our support we will work together to find the best solution for you and your business.
