Data Protection and Privacy
Our firm has a dedicated practice group for privacy and data protection law, and provides comprehensive services which cover not only personal data protection law issues (such as compliance, data protection advise, data subject rights and claims, international transfers, data localisation, sector specific rules and regulations, data beach notifications, and judicial remedies) but also transactions regarding data, i.e. license agreements, acquisitions, data use and data ownership matters.
We deal with all aspects of data protection law, including supervising and conducting data privacy compliance projects, advising multinational clients on a day to day basis. We work with both global and local data privacy teams and cooperate with them to ensure companies’ compliance with the law.
We advise clients on their newly developed devices and prepare required policies and documents for relevant mobile applications or web sites.
We represent clients before the Turkish Data Protection Authority (“Turkish DPA” or “DPA”) for notifications of breach and international transfer permit applications, including BCR approvals. Thanks to our in-depth experience in litigation, we provide clients with detailed appeal strategies to object to Turkish DPA decisions rendered against them. We represent clients before the Criminal Court of Peace to appeal decisions of the Turkish DPA. We also have a criminal lawyer assisting us in criminal proceedings.
We assist our clients to fulfil their Data Controllers’ Registration obligations and represent them before the Turkish DPA. We act as representative for foreign data controllers who are subject to registration in Turkey.
We further provide advice on data localization issues specific to Turkey, and advise our clients in M&A projects regarding data transfers and data protection compliance matters.
Our industry strengths are life sciences especially in pharmaceuticals and medical devices, banking, technology, media and telecom.
