Data Privacy
Compliance with data privacy laws should be a top priority for all businesses
The global technology wave has established data as the new profound global business and heart of income. A business’s ability to transfer and use customer data and other information is both integral to the day-to-day running of a company and key to profitability and success.

With the evolution of global and local laws as well as policies on data, compliance and living up to the standards is no longer an option but a requirement. At SAIL Advocates, we are committed to addressing this and navigating our clients through to compliance.

We frequently advise clients on data privacy and confidentiality. We remain uniquely placed with lawyers specializing in data protection and related issues as well as deep litigation experience coupled with valuable relations with regulators.
