Data rights – what power knows and what power intends to do with what it knows – is a defining issue of our culture. We are an agency of lawyers, policy experts, technology analysts and applied ethicists working to protect those who need us.
We think that fundamental rights and democratic controls should be defended and extended where data, technology, law and policy meet. This isn’t abstract, it’s about all of us being able to trust technology and those who wield it in a time of digital transformation.
We provide legal, consultancy and public policy services. We’ve worked with the UN, EU, ICRC, and on agenda-setting cases such as the successful prosecution of Cambridge Analytica and the claim against Google’s adtech system.
We work with international organisations, governments, companies, charities, universities, think tanks and individuals. We balance our commercial practice with giving those less-resourced a voice.
