Partner and head of our technology and data protection group, Nigel Miller has written the data protection chapter in Global Law and Business’s recent publication Risk Management in Law Firms: Mitigate Risk and Enhance Firm Success.
The publication brings together lawyers, consultants and other risk and compliance professionals to provide expert and practical guidance on essential risk management topics. Chapters cover risks relating to clients, internal operations and law and regulation, and address recent developments including issues arising from the shift to hybrid working, the increased focus on ESG and climate change, and the extended influence of clients through outside counsel guidelines.
Nigel’s chapter on data protection is available to read here. The chapter sets out a high-level summary of applicable data protection laws, with a focus on areas that have specific application to law firms, and
provides some best practice points for risk management.
