The next frontier for Mackrell International law firms?

The MI Space Law Practice Group launched recently (pun intended) to look after the needs of clients in this fast-growing sector.

It’s not just about the headline-grabbing Virgin Orbit or SpaceX or even NASA or ESA’s attempts to ‘boldly go’, but there are industries blossoming around the nuts and bolts of space exploration and space technology – and that’s on top of all the commercial satellite business, that all need sound commercial and legal advice to develop.

Headed by pioneering lawyer Şafak Herdem from Herdem & Associates our Turkish member, our Space Law PG already has firms experienced in supporting the sector from ZBV in Argentina and KWKR in Poland and a growing cohort of others from across the world.

In the same way that Mackrell International led the way to become arguably the premier legal network for Cannabis and CBD Law, we are proud to be building new capabilities in Space law.

Mackrell International Global Data Protection and Privacy Guide 2021

As more of our confidential personal information has become digitized, data privacy laws are taking on greater importance, requiring businesses to ensure they have the right tools in place to protect and secure personal information collected from consumers.

Compliance with data protection and data privacy laws is essential for businesses, both legally and to reputation – particularly in circumstances where a business is responding to a loss of data or security breach.

The laws relating to data protection and data privacy vary considerably from country to country, so having a clear and up-to-date understanding of the relevant laws and compliance requirements is essential – even more so when entities collect personal information from or about persons in several different countries because different laws and requirements will apply depending on where individuals reside.

The Mackrell International Global Data Protection and Privacy Guide is designed to provide convenient references to the primary data protection laws applicable in multiple countries and the contact details for highly skilled legal practitioners who can assist in each country.
