Information Law

Public and private bodies hold huge quantities of personal information and what they do with that data can have serious consequences for an individual. With rapid technological advancements, the protection of personal information has never been more important.

At Matthew Gold & Co we have particular expertise in this rapidly changing area of law. We have acted for claimants in private and public law claims involving issues around the handling of their data, and have successfully secured damages for clients and the deletion or correction of their personal information.

Our lawyers also have experience of advising charities on using information law as part of a wider campaign and on ensuring they too comply with information law requirements.

We are experts in the following areas:

  • Data Protection Act 1998
  • Freedom of Information Act 2000
  • Rights in respect of privacy under Article 8 of the European  Convention on Human Rights
  • Breach of confidence
  • Judicial review challenges in respect of the retention or disclosure  of personal information
  • Public interest disclosures
  • Disclosure and Barring Service (formerly the Criminal Records  Bureau and Independent Safeguarding Authority) and inclusion on  the Protection of Children Act List and Protection of Vulnerable  Adults List
