Data is critical infrastructure for a business and is subject to increasing regulatory obligations. A key issue for businesses is how to protect your clients' data to comply with the law and keep your reputation. 

We advise organisations from a variety of sectors on all aspects of the collection, use, management, storage, and disclosure of data and personal information, including protecting confidential information and trade secrets.

Our expertise covers laws regulating sensitive information and secret information such as:

  • Privacy Act

  • Consumer Data Right

  • State and Territory privacy laws, the EU GDPR and other global privacy regimes

  • Do Not Call Register Act

  • Spam Act

  • Anti-money laundering and counter terrorism financing legislation

  • Secrecy provisions in legislation

We assist our clients to assess their risk profile and to help them develop appropriate policies to manage their data and information, including the development of practical and sustainable privacy and data collection policies tailored to suit a client's business. Our insurance team incorporates lawyers who have expertise in privacy, intellectual property, media liability, technology and regulatory inquiries.

Examples of our work include:

  • Advising an educational technology company with its dual compliance with the Australian and EU's GDPR regime.

  • Advising a NSW-based peak industry body on its privacy policy, privacy compliance plan and a package of materials to supply to its members to support their privacy compliance.

  • Advising a national telehealth and e-health provider on compliance with privacy legislation, including privacy policies, collection notices, privacy manuals, terms of use and updated template contracts and training manuals.

  • Advising a multi-national insurance claims processor on the legal requirements (including privacy) for the proposed set up of offshore claims processing.
