The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) became law in the UK as the Data Protection Act in May 2018.

This legislation guide breaks down and analyses what this means for both your firm's own data and that of the clients you advise. This invaluable text:

  • provides a practical analysis of the GDPR
  • breaks the regulation down into easily digestible segments
  • includes the full text of the regulation.


Data protection is not a simple or easy concept to explain but James Castro-Edwards succeeds in doing so, providing readers with a clear guide to this vital new legislation.'

James Button, Present of Institute of Licensing Ltd and Principal of James Button & Co

This is an extremely accessible, clear and approachable introduction to the new legislation and would be a useful addition to the library of both private practice and in- house lawyers alike.'
