Keeping up to date with changes in data protection regulations, and best practices, can often be challenging for organisations. By outsourcing to an expert consultancy, like us, organisations can access data protection professionals and lawyers who stay current with the latest developments, case law, and have the subject matter expertise to support your organisation.

We are extremely competitive, and our work consistently exceeds our customers’ expectations.

With DPAS you get legal advice for a consultancy price.

LEARN MORE ABOUT How the business started


DPAS begin 7 years ago when Nigel was working for a large financial services customer as a Programme Manager, running their entire GDPR programme of work. Having worked in data protection for many years, Nigel wanted to create a Consultancy Business that was different to the big players. 

He wanted to give companies the opportunity to work with a consultancy that is pragmatic, thinks outside the box, and supports business objectives whilst complying with data protection law. 

Nigel met Melanie, our CEO, at Starbucks 7 years ago with his big idea, and then DPAS began. Melanie and Nigel have worked tirelessly over the past 7 years building a well-known business in the data protection industry, and have won multiple large tenders with public and private sector organisations. 

It was always important to both Nigel and Melanie that we created a business that looked after their customers and staff with the same care, attention and compassion.  Every client and every employee is equally valued, and our team are extremely proud of the work that we have done and continue to deliver all over the world. 


DPAS is extremely proud of the team we have and the opportunities that we provide in Devon. Aside from our very experienced team of Consultants and Data Protection Officers, we provide apprenticeship opportunities to junior members of staff, without a background in data protection wanting to get into the Industry. 

We love to train,  mentor and promote from within the team and support those with a passion for data protection to grow with DPAS or within the Industry. 

At a recent away day with all of our staff, we asked the team why they continue to work for DPAS and what made them want to work for DPAS. Some of the comments we received back were; opportunity, flexibility, ethics, diversity, equality, collaboration, recognition, transparency, empowerment, fun, high standard, caring, understanding, supportive, professional, informal and appreciated. 

You can be assured that if you decide to work with DPAS you will be working with employees that are valued, experts in their field and that always put their customers first.
