Data is big, really big, and like it or not, it’s only getting  bigger.


With the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulations (“GDPR”) data protection has never been more important. Briffa’s specialist solicitors can and advise on exactly how the data protection laws relate to your business and ensure that you’re GDPR compliant from the outset.

Data Protection Lawyers 

Data protection is an increasingly important area of law for 2 main reasons:

  1. Your commercial data is likely to be highly valuable and you will want to have taken the right steps to mitigate against the risk of deliberate or inadvertent leakage of sensitive information. A legal strategy, documents and training are all part of a comprehensive strategy to reduce your exposure, but businesses don’t all operate in the same way and so it’s important to obtain tailored advice at all times.
  1. The penalties for non-compliance with the GDPR are huge, running to €20 million or 4% of annual worldwide turnover, whichever is higher. Given that they apply to anyone who handles personal data, it’s critical that all businesses, big or small, operate within the rules.
