Our focus on all things digital leaves a lot to define in what we do still – below we break this down into 6 areas that form our core activities.
However, should you have any questions on anything digital, then contact us and we’ll inform you promptly and succinctly to your query.
Data Protection & Cyber Security
The big current question – will you be ready for the new European General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) coming into effect from May 25 2018?
The mechanisms to comply with this legislation include (but not limited to):
- Mandatory reporting of data breaches within 72 hours
- The end of customer bulk consent (i.e. “tick this box to consent”)
- Binding corporate rules and model data transfer clauses for cross-border data transactions
DigitalLawUK provide an array of expertise to help your company prepare for this, most notably our GDPR & Cyber Security Assessment report, which includes a comprehensive traffic-light system against 51 elements of a business that can provide vulnerabilities to your digital assets, as well as a comprehensive description of the risks for each of those assets, and the steps needed to take to resolve them.
Are you selling products internationally? Considering to set up an overseas office? Or perhaps needing to comply with oversea regulations for future business?
We work with clients in assisting them achieve legal and regulatory compliance across the UK, EU, US, Middle East and Asia – and can provide assistance and (where necessary) contacts to help you achieve your needs on this.

Whereas many companies will use boilerplate language – DigitalLawUK will always write the content pertinent to your needs, and in the language that suits your brand. So whether you need advice on revision work, or want to discuss a new website/business – get in touch and we will advise the best steps.
Companies must always keep their staff aware of the ongoing risks – from identifying scam emails that redirect client funds into criminal-based bank accounts, to mitigating the risk factors that enable lost or corrupted data, both from accidental and an intentional scenarios.
