Our practice areas within Information Rights, which are contentious and non-contentious, are: GDPR; confidential information; privacy; reputation damage; cybersecurity and freedom of information issues.
Our GDPR compliance practice focuses on advising businesses, organisations and consumers. We advise businesses operating via a digital platform
in complying with GDPR laws. In other words, any platform through which a business conducts its affairs online – including its websites, applications for mobile, tablet and other smart devices and application program interfaces. We focus on information rights within our niche which typically are users of digital platforms and service providers of those platforms as follows:
• GDPR regime
• Data sharing and transactions
• Data breaches, sanctions and enforcement
• GDPR in specific activities
• GDPR regime—DPA 2018
Our GDPR services include:
Advising on all aspects of compliance with the Regulations as they relate to digital businesses specifically:

- GDPR compliant cookie policies
- Cybersecurity, threats and risk management

- Dealing with civil and criminal investigations by the ICO, and providing advice on Guidance from the UK Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) on individuals rights under the General GDPR Regulation
- We focus on businesses and organisations’ GDPR obligations. We represent claimant or defendant in civil compensation claims.
As a business or organisation that collects personal information you should be aware that members of the public can bring a civil action for damages.
Under the GDPR Act 2018, if consumers have suffered damage or distress, they can claim for compensation.
There are no guidelines about how much compensation for a claim under the GDPR Act. It can be as little as between £750 to £1,000 in pre-action settlement or much higher depending on the nature of your case.
A recent ruling has also meant that a person or persons if it is a class action, can claim damages from distress even if there has been no actual loss suffered.
If there is a trial, the judge will consider all the circumstances, including the seriousness of the breach and the impact on the claimant in awarding damages.
The limitation period for making a GDPR claim is currently six years.
