Our experienced global Data team advises on all aspects of data, including on privacy, “big data”, confidentiality, secrecy, IP rights, commercialisation, cyber and crisis response

We provide holistic data advice, using our 30+ years’ experience in this space to bring you innovative, practical and, above-all, implementable advice. While less experienced practitioners see roadblocks everywhere, we pride ourselves on being business enablers, helping you to leverage the value of your data responsibly. Our team is truly global and spans over 100 lawyers in Asia, the U.S and Europe. 

Our internal Global Data Working group meets regularly, helping us to share and leverage global knowledge of not just what the law says, but what we are seeing in the market and from regulators.

All of our privacy experts are also technology and commercial lawyers. This means that they understand the environment and market in which you work and can workshop innovative ideas for uses of data with you agilely, bringing the full breadth of their skillsets to bear.

Our advice on data is wide-ranging, covering compliance, analytics, new AI tools, the Internet of Things, facial recognition, adtech, binding corporate rules applications, data investigations and litigation, cyber breach, enforcement, competition concerns and more.

We advise clients in many sectors, including in the highly regulated financial services, healthcare and insurance sectors.

Big Data

Data is at the core of successful digital health products. What is done with that data is not only pivotal to enhancing patient outcomes, but also to winning consumers’ trust and remaining competitive. Our global privacy team has been advising on data issues for more than 25 years. We help clients to understand the complex, strictly enforced and sometimes conflicting data laws around the world and share our deep market experience and knowledge gained from our strong relationships with regulators.


A deep understanding of technology is key to being part of the digital health ecosystem. Our global technology team is well-known for its presence at the cutting-edge of the technology market. We have worked on some of the most complex projects seen to date, from inception and through life. We understand the importance of getting to the heart of a project – helping to put in place arrangements that allow agile working, and which incentivise innovation and collaboration, while protecting our clients’ interests.

Intellectual Property

Intellectual property rights (IPRs) play a crucial role in protecting the innovations that lie at the heart of digital health. Our IP specialists have worked closely with a range of healthcare, medical device and technology companies for years, on a range of commercial, litigious and corporate matters. We have significant expertise in advising industry players on protecting and leveraging value from their IPRs and avoiding the risks of infringing third party IPRs.


The ever-changing regulatory landscape applicable to digital health can seem daunting. It includes medical device regulation, communications regulation, broader healthcare regulation, data/cyber regulation, e-commerce regulation, professional ethics, anti-bribery regulation, competition regulation and more. One of our key strengths is assisting clients with simplifying complex webs of local regulations and preparing clear global strategies. We leverage our own extensive global footprint and our relationships with subject matter experts to deliver seamless advice.

Commercialisation and portfolio management

Securing the right funding, alliance, supply chain and commercialisation structures is crucial for the growth of any digital health business - as is proper portfolio management. Some of the largest healthcare clients in the world trust us to advise them on all aspects of these issues. For example, we regularly advise on strategic partnering and JVs, portfolio M&A, licensing and other commercialisation arrangements, all aspects of manufacturing and distribution agreements, outsourcings and more.

Liability, Disputes and Investigations

Product liability is a key concern for any digital health business. We have experience of advising on class actions and investigations, regulatory actions and disputes arising from supply chain issues and in helping clients to calibrate and manage the risks associated with claims for defective products.
