Information and Privacy Law

It is compulsory to comply with all relevant privacy legislation which applies to your business. Our Business and Corporate team specialises in information and privacy law and can advise on all aspects of your business relating to the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) (Privacy Act) and the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs), as well as other specific legislative frameworks that may apply to your sector
