A number of common issues with GDPR aspects continue to engage minds –

  • Mergers and acquisitions involving businesses with a European presence: GDPR can influence due diligence work – as well the price;
  • Foreign Corrupt Practices Act investigations;
  • Immigration services;
  • Legal professional privilege, which differs in extent and application from attorney-client privilege and work product doctrine;
  • Subject Access Requests being used as a tool to obtain pre-action discovery in employment and partnership claims;
  • Client requirements for diversity data and diverse representation.

The ICO issued updated guidance on exemptions, including legal professional privilege, in September 2018.
