Data Protection

Information is the new oil. But increasing amounts of data, and increased flow of data between businesses and across national boundaries, challenge the relationship between commercial interests and data protection.

We have worked with data protection issues for years and offer Norway's leading expertise on the area. We have gained considerable experience by assisting in everything from major international data protection projects to individual matters concerning the processing of personal data. We have expert knowledge on matters concerning the freedom of speech, libel, and invasion of privacy, for instance through publication of personal information in the media. We have litigated a number of leading cases regarding the freedom of speech, libel and the right to privacy before the Norwegian Supreme Court and the European Court of Human Rights.

We may assist your business in the preparation of documents such as internal routines for data protection, user-oriented privacy policies and data processing agreements in outsourcing and the use of cloud services. Our legal experts are well-acquainted with the requirements of the Norwegian Data Protection Authority with regards to notifications and license applications, and we also assist with dispute resolution towards the Norwegian Data Protection Authority, the Privacy Appeals Board and the courts of law.
