‘How To Make Money From GDPR’

With the level of personal injury actions falling, could GDPR replace personal injuries as a new revenue stream for law firms? Find out what’s required to issue and win data protection actions, including mass claims.

Data protection specialist, William McLoughlin BL, outlines the various causes of action under GDPR, the proofs required and how to plead a data breach claim to make it very difficult to defend.

William looks at mass GDPR claims, current and future claims, along with updated caselaw on damages, the current uncertainty over PIAB authorization (for certain data protection actions), equity in data protection actions, upcoming European Court of Justice referrals of heads of damages (that may strengthen current/future claims), potential threats, pitfalls to data protection actions and judicial reviews involving GDPR.

William also makes suggestions on how practitioners can streamline data breach claims to reduce the work involved (and get costs!).
