As a business that handles personal data, you have an ongoing duty to keep your data protection practice under review and update things where necessary.
We can chat through what you have and haven’t got in place, and assess the risk using our standard RAG colour coding system. Then, we’ll quote for the work we think you need – it’s not about highlighting problems and leaving you in the lurch to sort them, it’s about giving your business the confidence to operate and grow in a sustainable and secure way.
When do you need a health check?
Contracting with new suppliers?
Your terms of business might need a refresh, especially since we’ve seen so many changes to DP laws recently. This might include adapting processing clauses or reviewing your relationships with processors, to make sure you stay GDPR compliant.
Onboarding new staff?
You’ve welcomed new people to your team, but perhaps you’ve realised that the onboarding process is lacking in training – compliance is a firm-wide responsibility, so make sure everyone is in the know when it comes to your privacy approach.
Had a data breach?
No matter whether you have resolved the issue or not, it’s clear there has been a breakdown insecurity and process. Let’s make sure we heal those wounds rather than cover them with plasters…
Who can this affect?
Founders, Directors & CEOs
If there are holes in your compliance framework, you as the leader of the business will fall right through them if you don’t take preventative action.
HR People & Culture
Part of the process of checking the privacy health of the company is making sure everyone understands the rules, and knows where to find more information about their responsibilities. As the HR team, you’re responsible for those people and their success (and usually, drafting all the documents they need to get there).
It’s just the entire way that Plume does business. I’ve never felt forgotten, I’ve never felt that someone else is too important, everyone’s so nice and everyone puts in 100% of the effort. Working with Plume is a real pleasure.
Our favourite thing about working with Plume is it doesn’t feel like we’re working with a law firm but rather an extension of our own team. The lawyers have become so embedded in our business, so commercially focussed and so tuned to our risk appetite and way of working
The best thing about working with the Employment team is the prompt guidance and support they have given with sensitive and complex issues. Fiona offers professional and diligent advice as well as being incredibly genuine and encouraging. It is reassuring to know they are on hand to help at all times.
Everyone internally has been incredibly impressed with your work and I'm sure we will want to continue working together long-term.
Plume is quite clearly the best law firm in the history of the universe. With trademark protections bestowed upon us by your godly lawyers, we'll be able to focus on what we do best.... developing awesome medical technology for the blind community.
The corporate team helped us navigate through the sale of our business successfully. I appreciated their expertise and in the negotiations it became very beneficial to have their experience guiding our business decisions. I highly recommend - thanks again guys!
Quickly understood my requirements, carried out a thorough review of the facts and produced a user-friendly reference document tailored to my business which demonstrated a strong grasp of the commercials. Take on was pain-free and everyone was friendly and responsive. Would recommend.
Excellent firm. Professional and ideal for start-ups.
The team have supported us with day-to-day and strategic legal advice throughout the year. We're grateful to them for stepping up to support us through this important milestone in MyTutor’s development and for their commitment in getting the deal over the line.
We currently use Plume for our small business and have had a great experience! They are knowledgeable, professional and answer in a timely fashion. Would recommend!
Great working with the folks at Plume. The quality of their work was top notch, their communication was effective and overall happy with the services provided.
You are without a doubt the COOLEST law firm ever, and we love working with you! <3
They're doing amazing stuff on social media and standing out from the crowd. This is a gold standard in disruption.
You are continuing to shape the legal industry to be more creative, compassionate, and (most significantly) human. Keep breaking down barriers - your reach is further than you may realize 🦩
The team have come on board to support MyTutor, a fast growing EdTech business which previously had no in-house legal resource. The team have made a hugely positive difference in a short space of time and we feel incredibly supported by the team, who offer a commercial, low fuss and highly responsive service
Plume are a wonderful, professional and caring law firm. The communication and attention to detail we received by them in dealing with our case was brilliant. I will definitely be using them again for future needs.
The team provided excellent leadership and support throughout our funding process. In particular, they provided comprehensive ownership and management of the close process for AccelerComm, providing excellent, professional guidance from start to finish and enabling AccelerComm to focus on growing core business growth
