Privacy law is a rapidly evolving and dynamic area that is becoming more complex through evolving technologies and increased access to information. Privacy issues are becoming more prevalent in the commercial setting for business owners, employers and employees as well as technology firms and individuals.
Most organizations of any size work with personal information, which includes a wide variety of data, such as information about a customer’s purchasing habits, credit ratings and financial information as well as employee information. Any business that collects such personal information must comply with privacy legislation. We successfully guide our clients through their various privacy law issues in order to safeguard their businesses.
- Privacy policies, contracts and procedures

- Investigations and complaints before the privacy commissioner
