Data protection

Data protection

Data protection is a dynamically developing area within Pepeliaev Group, which is conditioned by:

  • the ongoing development of legislation relating to the treatment of confidential information,
  • a growing demand for high-skilled legal support and protection of business interests in the area of processing sensitive information, and
  • the accumulated experience and unified approaches of experts from different practices.

We offer both integral legal services and IT support from our experts. 

Our experts’ practicable recommendations are based on their experience of handling litigations and interacting with state authorities.
