Compliance is about building a new legal culture for our clients, which requires us to look beyond strict legal obligations. Lexington Avocats views the promotion of compliance as a key to create value, which can only be achieved with and through a complete understanding of its clients’ activities and culture. This is the first step in implementing efficient processes and tools tailored to the business.

Implementing the GDPR requires different legal skills depending on the activities of the company in question and the data being processed. With this in mind, Lexington Avocats creates versatile, multi-disciplinary teams (i.e., associates and partners from different departments and with different expertise) to better respond to our clients’ need. This synergy enables our clients to benefit from a consistent approach, combined with the relevant expertise for all their issues. In addition, we regularly work in coordination with consulting firms (IT) or any other useful technical experts. We are able to offer either tailored full-service support in order to deliver entire projects, or discrete ad hoc assistance and advice on specific issues that arise.
