Ireland's data bar
One year on from the implementation of the GDPR, Ireland’s data protection community is thriving. The country hosts the headquarters of the biggest tech companies in the world, so data privacy firms based in Ireland have plenty to do.
Ireland’s data bar, which operates from Dublin, is mainly made up of firms with a strong domestic presence and a limited number of offices established abroad. William Fry, Arthur Cox and A&L Goodbody are the largest, with bases in California, London and Ireland. All the firms on this list have a vast international reach in relation to data privacy compliance.
