About Adam Halsey

I have solid experience in leading on a wide range of data protection matters – from subject access requests and DPIAs to any ad-hoc queries. I am passionate about upholding individuals’ rights under the UK GDPR and Data Protection Act, and equally committed to ensuring the organisations I work with achieve this.

Having worked closely with schools as well as Invicta Law’s Child Protection, Community Care and Employment teams, I understand the risk that comes with handling the most sensitive personal data, and how to advise and support those who work with such information day-in day-out.

Beyond data protection, I champion Lexcel quality standards at Invicta. I enjoy working with our fantastic team of legal professionals and support staff to maintain and thrive off these quality standards, to the benefit of our clients, our people and anyone who comes into contact with us.


Client testimonials

“I am writing in praise of your support. As someone in the firing line of an ultra-aggressive legal team for the first time in my life, this was a traumatic and, at times, upsetting process. You were at my side, dispensing wise and calming counsel throughout. You have been readily available when crises occurred, have been a wonderful listener and, in the end, we reached an outcome that was highly satisfactory for our school and its pupils. I cannot speak highly enough of the way that you handled this case, and I thank you and your firm for the support you gave me. Being a chair of governors, sworn to confidentiality, can be a lonely business! You kept me sane.”
Chair of School Governors
“You’ve been incredibly helpful with this. Thanks for always replying so promptly and for being a star.”
Private Sector Town Planning & Development Consultancy
“The experience has been really top end. Rather than just offering the options, they have given some real solid advice on the best route. It's a good business 'partnering' approach.”
Kent Fire and Rescue Service
“Their employment advice has always proved to be sound. I’ve worked with lots of different lawyers in London boroughs and. I’d also say that Invicta Law is the most solution-focused.”
