Our knowledge, expertise & publications
Not many of our clients are keen on data protection, and ensuring full and complete compliance is something no organisation is capable of. We address this topic, which has been widely discussed for several years, in a transparent and clear way - especially in view of the increasingly stringent sanctions that are now also being imposed in Switzerland. We will guide you on how to successfully manage the increasingly strict and complex requirements in your business efficiently, solution- and risk-oriented. In June 2020 we reorganised our Data & Privacy team for just this purpose. We offer extensive experience in data protection compliance and in the design of projects not only in accordance with legal but also "felt" data protection. Our clients benefit from the experience gained in numerous successful proceedings against the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (FDPIC) and other authorities.
Our approach is to "coach" our clients and make our team members available to extend our client's own in-house capabilities where they require additional resources. We provide after-hours support for cyber attacks and data emergencies. And if an investigation or dispute with the authorities cannot be avoided, we have special expertise in administrative proceedings.
For compliance in the area of data protection, we not only offer consulting services but also numerous tools and templates for implementing the requirements of the Data Protection Act (DPA) and the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). They can be purchased from us at affordable fixed prices. An overview of these tools can be found here. Simply ask us about the prices.
If you need a Data Protection Officer (DPO) or "data protection advisor" within the meaning of the revised DSG, we also have an offer for that. The independence of the DPO from our data protection advisory services is ensured.
Our team members not only advise on data protection. We also advise on all aspects of data protection law - from the protection of business secrets, aspects of data security and issues such as the "ownership" of data and public governmental transparency. We will assist you to ensure proper implementation of innovative, data-oriented business ideas and products from a legal perspective (including GDPR compliance), draft and negotiate the necessary contracts and assist you in dealing with the relevant authorities and contractual partners in Switzerland and abroad. The members of our Data & Privacy team are specialised to provide expert advice to communications, media and IT providers and to companies operating in regulated markets such as banking & finance, healthcare, energy, life sciences, telecommunications and aviation.
