Helping the legal sector with compliance

When it comes to choosing a supplier key indicators for legal firms of any size or specialisation are speed and customer service excellence, as these are both elements that underpin your own client relationships and fee structures.

At Restore Datashred we work with many different legal businesses, so we also understand that reputation can be a fragile thing and that it is best nurtured and protected by helping you uphold your clients’ confidence in your team. Our swift, discreet services help you do just that by maintaining the strictest confidentiality.

Restore Datashred specialise in offering bespoke secure shredding services to the legal sector

We tailor our data shredding services to suit each individual firm for maximum efficiency. We set up collection schedules and processes that guarantee the safe passage of your confidential information from office or storage facility to shredder blade and on into recycling; processes and safeguards that are designed to prevent data breaches and the potentially ruinous fines and reputational damage that go with them.

But there are challenges

Despite the digital revolution, legal firms still generate vast quantities of paper and can find themselves drowning if they don’t get a firm grip on managing it – the end game being a properly implemented Retention and Disposal Policy.

In the era of GDPR and heightened corporate social responsibility, secure data shredding plays a major role in helping you dispose of your legally sensitive information at the end of its statutory shelf life, in the most responsible and sustainable ways possible. Working with a professional data shredding business like Restore Datashred we can help with the destruction of all your sensitive documents, WEEE and any media items you may have. Our full range of flexible service is a big step towards achieving compliance and meeting your social and environmental responsibilities.

I am really happy with the service and the process which you give assurance to your customers of how many sacks picked up for shredding, certification of destruction, and prompt documentation. What really impressed me the most was the information regarding General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) on your website?

I was looking for guarantees that all our service providers and data processors had robust procedures in place, to ensure secure handling, retention and destruction of our info. Your extensive knowledge of GDPR and the fact you wanted to impart that knowledge to customers and anyone else is great. I learnt a few things and felt assured that as a data processor, you are handling our legal paperwork safely and securely.
