Data Protection & Data Privacy Lawyers.

Data protection and privacy have always been of paramount importance to all businesses. This became even more important when the enhanced rights and obligations of GDPR were introduced.

To create well-rounded, thorough documents and policies, a business needs to have an expert lawyer on hand. When you need an additional team member to support a project to give your practices and procedures an overhaul, Obelisk Support can help.

Our pool of skilled consultants includes expert GDPR lawyers and data privacy lawyers. Our consultants are experts in privacy statement checks, have intimate knowledge of how to create privacy statements, and can give detailed privacy legal advice. All this expertise is available to you when you need it, while we handle the admin.

Data Protection & Data Privacy Lawyers FAQs

What is a data protection and data privacy lawyer?

A data protection lawyer would typically get involved in drafting or reviewing privacy notices and privacy policies, advising employers on responding to data subject requests, providing data protection training and amending contracts of employment for compliance purposes.

Should I employ a freelance lawyer to look at my privacy documentation?

Depending on the volume of data that your company manages, a Lawyer on Demand that offers ongoing but ad hoc support can be the ideal (and often sufficient) set up to get data protection legal support for any business. Data protection is particularly important given the enhanced rights and obligations of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Do all your Data Protection & Data Privacy Lawyers work from home?

No! Whilst many of our consultants work remotely, we can also provide you with consultants who work in your offices or work their days across both locations.

Can Obelisk help me with GDPR policies?

Yes! Obelisk Support has provided support to many clients around reviewing GDPR policies on a regular basis, drafting policies or carrying out end-to-end reviews of data privacy compliance systems and processes in organisations of various sizes.

I have a possible data breach issue - can you help?

Yes! A data breach, or even a suspected data breach, can bring huge risks into any organisations and need to be dealt with in compliance with all legislation as well as promptly. We can provide an immediate response team to support you navigate if such a breach is supected or has occurred in your organisation.

Why's should I use Obelisk for my Data Privacy needs?

Obelisk Support offers a flexible approach to giving you the cover you need with both expert lawyers but also for the more administrative tasks of managing any subject access requests processes in a timely manner through the use of mixed-experience teams. This would provide peace of mind but also a more manageable cost.
