Strengthened since the entry into force of the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) in 2018, the protection of personal data is today an unavoidable and structuring subject for companies.
In order to ensure the proper application of this regulation, control or audit procedures carried out by CNIL (French Data Protection Authority) agents are multiplying. Fines for failure to comply with the GDPR can now amount to up to 4% of the worldwide turnover of the company concerned, regardless of its sector of activity. The financial stakes are colossal.
The multiplication of controls and the rise in administrative fines require that you be prepared and accompanied.
With extensive experience in data protection, a perfect knowledge of the workings of the CNIL and a thorough understanding of the possible appeals and administrative procedure, our teams specialising in personal data and public law combine their cutting-edge expertise to assist you, whether during inspections carried out by the CNIL or before the administrative courts in the context of appeals related to CNIL decisions.

Working with you to invent smart cities
City habits are transformed by innovations in mobility, housing, data, services and energy.
It is up to us now to redesign the laws that go with them, to develop ingenious and sustainable cities that have their inhabitants at heart first and foremost.
Whether you are a promoter of public or private projects, we help you translate the new equilibrium that these changes to the regulations will bring about.
Committed for many years in energy transition and building renovation, we assist you on the emerging offsite construction market.
This trend towards industrialization, boosted by new forms of cooperation and by the spreading of digital technologies, is shaping the building of tomorrow. Components are remotely manufactured after having been specifically designed for efficient assembly on a building site, accelerating the construction process and reducing nuisances.
It is now time to secure the benefits and opportunities of these innovations created in the workshop from the collaboration between designers and producers. We need to allow funding from the beginning of the study phase for solutions that will support employment, circular economy and energy performance.
These new buildings will be progressively connected to send data, which will have to be processed adequately. The combination of our advanced expertise in real estate, energy performance, IP-IT and industrial contracts led us to draft new contract models ("CORELIAS") in order to meet the new challenges in a pragmatic way.
