About SME Comply

SME Comply are a legal services and data protection consultancy with innovation and technology at its heart.

 

We believe that to offer truly meaningful services to businesses, modern lawyers need to be in sync with the business environment, that is why our lawyers are business as well as legally qualified. 

 

We want to simplify the management of compliance and legal matters, by providing packaged fixed-fee or retainer solutions to businesses, so that they remain in control of costs.

 

Meet our founder

SME Comply was set up by Gary O’Reilly, a regulatory and privacy solicitor with over 15 years experience in the areas of risk and compliance, serious fraud and litigation. He has been involved in some highly publicised national cases (including the Mid-Staffordshire inquiry and the horse racing corruption scandal).

 

Gary is well used to representing individuals being interviewed under caution and individuals under investigation by the police and other regulatory bodies including the Information Commissioners Office (ICO). 

 

As an experienced privacy solicitor and data protection officer, Gary advises organisations on worldwide data protection and data protection law issues.  He was until recently retained by the largest local authority in Europe to advise on data protection, GDPR and Freedom of Information (FOI) matters.

 

Gary has also drafted privacy policies, guidance notes, and data protection policies for many employers, including one employer with over 10,000 employees!  

 

As an MBA graduate Gary can also bring his business acumen to the table, and has a wealth of experience in assisting startup’s  and SME’s in data protection and commercial law issues impacting on tenders/procurement, contracts, data sharing and processing agreements, AI and cross border data transfers.
