In a fast-evolving field and against a background of pending reform, our data protection practice helps our clients with compliance and workplace issues, with both Swiss and international investigations, and with litigation.
Our team advises on all compliance issues that arise from the collection, processing and transfer of data. This includes anything from records management and marketing campaigns to the use of social media. We can help with whistle-blowing procedures, clinical trials, financial privacy and debt collection, as well as IT security, cloud computing and outsourcing solutions within Switzerland or across borders.
We conduct data protection audits, assess information flows and deliver data-protection training courses.
We regularly advise on the gathering of data in connection with suspected computer abuse, fraud, corruption and the breach of competition regulations. We help our clients to set up policies and binding corporate rules. We also advise on discovery issues and the restrictions on collecting evidence within Swiss borders for use in foreign proceedings.
