Lawyers For Privacy And Data Protection

With the growth of technology in every aspect of our business and personal lives, privacy and data protection have become growing concerns in our society. Evolving developments in legislation and practice on the provincial, federal and international levels have made privacy concerns vitally important to businesses.

Our clients need to be careful not just in gathering and keeping information, but in processing and transferring it as well.

For clients of Gilbert's LLP, it is important to safeguard financial and personal data as well as the intellectual property that often forms their most valuable assets.
