Privacy and Data Protection

Goodmans Privacy and Data Protection Group provides clear advice and roadmaps to help our clients navigate Canada’s evolving privacy and data protection laws.  Our lawyers routinely advise on complex, cutting-edge issues relating to cybersecurity, big data, artificial intelligence, biometrics and facial recognition technologies. We also provide practical advice on compliance with Canada’s anti-spam law (CASL), one of the most stringent laws of its kind in the world.

Importantly, our work is not confined to addressing only personal information – but all forms of information and data, which are valuable assets in a data-driven economy. We skillfully operate in an inter-jurisdictional context, often reconciling the privacy and data protection requirements of Canada, the United States, Europe and Asia.  Our lawyers provide expert counsel on avoiding and mitigating regulatory and litigation risk. Where necessary, we are ready to actively litigate or resolve disputes on behalf of our clients and have litigated a number of Canada’s leading privacy-related commercial cases.
