Protection of personal data/GDPR

GDPR team

For its clients, Advokátní kancelář Kříž a partneři has set up a legal team specialised in the area of personal data protection and related legal issues. Team members, including an external GDPR auditor, have long been preparing for an upcoming new regulation within the framework of the GDPR for a long time and they have further been monitoring the latest developments and interpretation opinions concerning implementation of the GDPR in practice.

Besides the wide international cooperation of our law office in the area of IP/IT/data protection, an added value of this specialised legal team is also a strong legal background in related areas of intellectual property law, which is evidenced by the fact that for the years 2013, 2015 and 2016 Advokátní kancelář Kříž a partneři was awarded the title Law Firm of the Year in the category of intellectual property, within which this area to a large extent falls.

Another convincing strength is engagement of several members of our law office in pedagogical activity at the Faculty of Law of Charles University in Prague and other teaching and publication activity in the Czech Republic and abroad. Members of our specialised team have been lecturing on the GDPR at international conferences and concerned workplaces already for a year.

Our law office is also focused on e-commerce issues and legal aspects of advanced technologies, both in terms of copyright law and industrial property law, and in the area of   personality protection, media law, advertising and marketing, which enables us fast identification of needs of clients from such sectors in connection with the GDPR.
