Hazel Grant, Partner, Head of Privacy, Security and Information
I am head of the privacy and information group at Fieldfisher, specialising in data protection and information law. My clients come from within the UK government, health and charitable sectors, and also include professional services firms and IT service providers. I particularly enjoy advising on pragmatic solutions and helping my clients succeed in their projects.
I'm interested in data compliance projects, international data transfers, data audits and data retention projects. My work also covers responding to data security breaches, notification of data losses to the regulator and negotiations on remediation work and compensation. I advise organisations on information access requests (whether for personal information or government held information) and handle complaints to the regulator and appeals to the tribunal.
Many of my projects are international in nature, advising clients on global solutions for their privacy compliance issues, where necessary coordinating advice from our network of specialist privacy lawyers.
In addition, I hold a Certified Information Privacy Professional (Europe) (CIPP/E).
Chambers UK 2015 says "Hazel wears her strong intellect and legal rigour lightly, and is always prepared to offer practical and commercial risk solutions in a complex and constantly changing environment" and that I have "a quick grasp of the subject and brings the essentials to the fore"
