DATA PROTECTION

Data Protection

Personal information is a quintessential ingredient for the operation of any organisation. The General Data Protection Regulation has significantly enhanced the rights of individuals in respect of their personal information and has introduced new parameters for organisations. Recognising the changing environment, the Firm has formed a team of dedicated lawyers, whose sole focus is, to assist clients in all aspects of data protection law.

The GDPR team advises clients from a wide range of industries including but not limited to: financial services, shipping, retail, consultancies, information technology and healthcare. Starting from the premise that one size does not fit all, we provide practical, comprehensive and expert legal advice taking into account each client’s individual needs, industry and areas of operation.

As the sole Cypriot member of the international employment and pensions law alliance Ius Laboris and member of the Data Privacy Expert Group, the GDPR team provides clients with first-class legal advice and support on data protection matters in over 50 countries.
