Since the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force, the number of legal proceedings with a focus on data protection law has increased steadily. Due to the numerous rights of data subjects (e.g., the right to information or the right of deletion) and, above all, the claim for monetary compensation after a data protection incident under Article 82 of the GDPR, civil proceedings are increasing. As a result, financial claims for damages increase the liability risk for companies, in particular in the case of a data protection incident involving a large number of persons the amount of damages can add up to millions of euros.
We support companies in defending themselves against claims for damages and to implement GDPR-compliant procedures. For this purpose, we work closely with internal and external data protection officers and IT experts.
