As you should know, data protection law in the UK is changing on 25th May 2018 with the General Data Protection Regulations (the GDPR). Our GDPR hub has lots of useful information in relation to this. With fines of up to 20 million euros or 4% of annual worldwide turnover (whichever is greater), it is important that employers get this right.
As Platinum Partners of Dundee & Angus Chamber of Commerce, MacRoberts will be speaking at their upcoming event on 27 April – just four weeks until the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force. This event will take a look at the best ways for an organisation to manage their online presence and mitigate risk.
MacRoberts is delighted once again to be taking part in this year’s Kiltwalk with ENABLE Scotland.
The past 14 months have been very successful for MacRoberts’ Corporate team, who have worked on a fantastic range of deals right across the Scottish economy, acting for large UK PLCs, an array of successful Scottish SMEs and some of Scotland’s most exciting new businesses.
MacRoberts is delighted to announce that Corporate Partner Neil Kennedy will succeed John Macmillan as Managing Partner from 1st May 2018.
Although the weather warning has now been downgraded to amber, public transport remains significantly affected. Our offices in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Dundee have reopened, although they are not fully staffed. Clients can continue to contact our lawyers via email or mobile phone and will receive the usual high standards of service. We thank all of our clients for their ongoing support and understanding during this period of disruption.
John Macmillan, Managing Partner
