External Independent Reviews

Legally Trained Consultants

Trained Lawyers

There is a multitude of reasons why an issue may have occurred, and we will help you figure out where the issue has occurred and present recommendations around how to mitigate the chance of the issue happening again.

As trained lawyers, our consultants have a keen eye for detail and possess an inquisitive and investigative mind, leaving no stone unturned. This combined with our subject matter expertise places us well for external reviews of an organisation where something has gone wrong.

Our reviews are objective, informative and aim to provide you with as much information as possible to fix the issue without overwhelming you. We always ensure that our reviews have a series of recommendations and actions which you should take to improve your organisation’s practices or to mitigate the likelihood of something going wrong again.


What reviews do we typically investigate?

  • Data protection breaches
  • Data security incidents
  • Subject Access Requests
  • Freedom of Information Requests
  • Complaints
  • Process failures
  • Organisational processes and procedures.

Ultimately, every case is different, and we will tailor our investigation to best handle each case. Notwithstanding the above, we have a general approach to cases which involves the following:

1)     First, we need to fully understand the issue. We will review all the relevant materials and have discussions with all the relevant people pertinent to the issue.

2)     After we have an understanding of the issue, we will cross-reference the facts of the case against the policies and procedures which ought to have been in place to analysis where procedure was or was not followed.

3)     After we have ascertained all the facts and understood where the issues are, we will draft a detailed report of the case, explaining our investigation, the issues we picked up and any recommendations and actions we have to mitigate the issue from never happening again, or, how to improve practices at your organisation.
