Who we are

Naomi Korn Associates is a UK-based leader specialising in copyright, data protection, and licensing. Since 2003 we have worked with the cultural, heritage, charity, education and private sectors across the UK and internationally.

How we work

We support our clients to comply with the law. We also help them to exploit their assets commercially through better rights and privacy management. We do this by integrating our legal, commercial, information governance and technical expertise into our clients’ practices.

We help our clients achieve authoritative and affordable results. From documentation reviews to policy development, and staff training, we collaborate with our clients, working flexibility around their requirements, to help them to achieve their outcomes, build confidence, and increase organisational resilience.
