Privacy

In an increasingly connected world, measures and processes designed for the protection of an individual’s personal information are no longer nice to haves but are mandatory. In addition to implementing the infrastructure to properly collect and protect personal information, companies must develop and follow a privacy policy outlining how they collect, use and disclose personal information. And with more and more people resorting to Court proceedings to address privacy breaches of various kinds, the stakes are getting higher.

 

Our full-service team can help has the necessary experience to help you develop your privacy policy and advise on the implementation of procedures to protect personal information. We can act for you in privacy-based actions in Court, and we can also assist you in the event that you run into issues with privacy compliance or any privacy breaches.
