Legal Advice and Support

For legal advice or support call us on 01386 793632 or email us at

From time to time, education professionals will need clear, precise and insightful advice on information law matters. When the stakes are high or time is of the essence, we can provide the help that you need, now.

How Much Will it Cost?

Education professionals working in the public sector are eligible for advice at reduced rates. Currently these are up to 50% less than our private sector client rates.

Whether it's one - off advice you need or support with a whole matter or project, we can help. Here are some examples of the sort of things we can help with. If you can't see your query on the list, just call us. We can still help.

- Responding to Requests for Information: Use our tactics and "know how" to lawfully respond to information requests without having to necessarily disclose information you do not want to.

- HR advice on monitoring staff use of email and websites

- Support dealing with the Information Commissioner's Office should your organisation receive a complaint or be investigated for a breach

- Legal support during and after a data security breach including liaising with the media and the regulator. We will help you identify the steps you need to take quickly so as to reduce the possibility of facing costly enforcement action and adverse PR reports.

- Drafting data processor agreements and commercial data protection and FOI contract clauses: when you outsource work which involves another organisation having access to school personal data you are legally required to take certain steps under the Data Protection Act. E.g. biometrics companies, IT companies, peripatetic teacher contracts.

- We can help you achieve the ISO security standards.
