Data Privacy & Protection

Going beyond traditional counsel to offer tailormade solutions on business strategies.


AZB & Partners is highly regarded by clients and our peer network, for our specialised and diverse experience in the privacy and data protection space. Our team comprises CIPP / E certified professionals, industry body representatives and sectoral experts in TMT, Fintech, healthcare, IT, intellectual property, e–commerce, blockchain, AI, automotive, electronics and financial and payment technologies. This enables us to better understand the technology and regulatory space our clients operate in and render nuanced advice.

Our lawyers work on both advisory and transactional mandates and often in a cross–jurisdictional context. We participate in stakeholder and regulatory consultations on the evolving privacy and data protection framework in India. Clients seek our assistance while preparing for depositions before Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) constituted to examine the PDP Bill.

Work Highlights



AZB’s highly specialised privacy and data protection practice helps clients formulate their data protection management programme, develop data protection policies, document data flows within their organisation and categorise sensitive personal data to ensure that requisite controls are put in place to safeguard such data from threats.

Our lawyers are adept at identifying legal and regulatory risks related to non–compliance with data protection frameworks and providing strategic opinions on the adoption of the ‘privacy by design’ principle while creating new technologies and systems.

All client mandates are viewed independently and we closely engage with them from commencement till closure, sharing insights on critical regulatory and/or legislative developments. We also conduct training sessions within client organisations to educate them on compliance requirements relating to collection, handling and processing of personal data, guiding them on best practices to mitigate data breach risks.
