Information Law and Data Protection

Information law and Data Protection experts

Hempsons have decades of experience of advising on information law and data protection, and regularly advise NHS and other healthcare providers, third sector entities and tech start ups in the field.  We advise on the full range of information governance issues, ranging from individual requests under the subject access and freedom of information regimes, ICO investigations and appeals through to ensuring information governance compliance in artificial intelligence-powered ‘big data’ analytics projects.  Information governance issues often occur in connection with other legal issues and our information governance team has a multidisciplinary approach, working with our procurement, commercial and employment teams as appropriate.

Recent work in this area has included preparing clients for the transition to the GDPR regime and the Data Protection Act 2018, including a national programme of seminars on this issue.
