DISCLOSURE: A new dawn?

18 April 2017  

James Lister evaluates whether the Court of Appeal has established a new approach to disclosure and data protection

In February 2017, the Court of Appeal handed down their judgment in Dawson-Damer & Ors v Taylor Wessing LLP [2017]. In the few weeks since then, much has already been written about the judgment and its impact on trust law and data protection issues alike: does the court’s judgment herald a new approach to well-enshrined principles of disclosure and data use?
