The firm carries out General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliance audits for companies based in France or abroad which collect personal data from European citizens.
Our lawyers work with the managers of SMEs and VSEs to ensure that their personal data processing is compliant with the GDPR, whether this involves the personal data of employees (video-surveillance, telephone recordings, cyber-surveillance in the workplace, drafting of IT charters) or consumers (drafting of privacy policies, rules on commercial canvassing, carrying out privacy impact assessments). We help respond to requests from employees and consumers to exercise their rights over their personal data, and to threats of complaints to the CNIL (France’s national data protection authority). We also act following a data breach (cyber-attack, intrusion, personal data leak) or to manage a CNIL inspection.
We also assist our clients in drafting and negotiating their contracts relating to the protection of innovations (copyright assignment contracts, patent licence agreements, etc.). We conduct audits of intellectual property rights in order to enhance the value of a company’s intangible assets in preparation for fund-raising or mergers and acquisitions.
Finally, we help to draft, review and negotiate IT contracts and support our clients in bringing their e-commerce sites, applications and marketplaces into compliance.
