HGF’s data protection team has extensive experience working with high-profile public and private sector clients advising on data protection issues, assessing and recommending steps for GDPR compliance and reviewing and drafting data protection policies and contracts.

Our legal team provides high-quality compliance training whilst also advising on the implications of e-marketing, loyalty schemes, the collection and handling of big data and its application in artificial intelligence components, as well as international transfers of data. 

HGF has the experience and expertise to help any business stay on top of GDPR and data protection compliance. Our legal team enables clients to navigate the ongoing growth of ecommerce and the resulting magnitude of data collected and processed, along with the significant compliance requirements and high financial and reputational stakes.
