Our Services

We have extensive experience in providing data protection legal advice and services, all of which are covered by legal privilege when working with HelloDPO Law. Our core services include:

As part of our compliance audit and remediation process we complete a comprehensive organisation compliance assessment for personal data and risks associated with how it is being used, this is benchmarked against current data protection laws and regulations, and we then lead your team in carrying out the recommended remediation work to ensure that your organisation is compliant.

As technology continues to evolve, privacy laws and digital regulations are struggling to keep up. We support clients through the constantly evolving regulatory landscape while you are developing, implementing and using new technology, helping you find a practical path to compliance. We are on hand to help, whether that be, creating a new app, implementing a new AI project or devising your own proprietary technology.

We understand that organisations have an extensive selection of online channels to engage with their audiences, and with choice comes regulation. We can supporting your organisation’s marketing team to achieve commercial goals while staying within the robust privacy requirements mandated by data protection legislation. We do this by helping your marketing and legal teams navigate the compliance minefield of purchasing “GDPR-Compliant” data marketing lists from third parties and data brokers to advising on marketing analytics systems like Google Analytics, Sprinklr or Semrush to ensure cookie notices are consistent with the data processing and collection of such tools and robust supplier contracts, or to assess the risk/ensure compliance with sales tools that can appear to “data scrape” from platforms such as LinkedIn.

Whether you are experiencing your first data breach or have received a complaint from individuals or regulators regarding your use of personal data, with our vast experience in handling data breaches, we help identify, assess and manage the risks stemming from breach incidents and mitigate the effects on your organisation and those whose personal data has been compromised.

A complex matrix of legal requirements apply when sharing personal data and transferring it outside the EU and UK. We can help you:
• Define your data sharing strategy
• Navigate the various data protection regulatory requirements avoiding the threat of fines, reputational damage and risk of non-compliance
• Draft standard contractual clauses and data sharing agreements
• Carry out transfer impact assessments
Train your contract and procurement teams on the steps they need to take when carrying out due diligence before enabling data sharing

We also have experience drafting and obtaining regulatory authorisation for binding corporate rules at a UK and EU level.

Failure to adequately assess an organisation’s data protection compliance before an acquisition or investment can cost you time and money down the line. We support growing businesses, institutional investors, venture capital companies and private equity firms through the acquisition process by helping to investigate the source of personal data to ensure compliance with current data protection legislation, legitimate usage of that data and highlighting any privacy risks which need to be remediated prior to or after acquisition or investment.

Qualified legal professionals undertake our investor due diligence audits and reports, allowing you to attach legal privilege to
these documents.

If your organisation’s data protection team is overstretched, under-resourced, or one doesn’t yet exist, we can step in to become a seamless extension of your privacy team. Whether it be working in collaboration with your data protection manager, head of legal or DPO, we bring our fresh, simplistic, commercially focused and agile approach to the table to tackle all things data protection.
