Pilar Arzuaga, Senior Associate, Technology, Outsourcing and Privacy Lawyer, Fieldfisher

As a Senior Associate in Fieldfisher's Privacy, Security and Information Law group, I regularly advise international organisations in a variety of sectors on data protection matters.

My experience includes advising on privacy and data protection compliance, data sharing terms and data processing agreements, data subjects' rights and SARs, complex data export solutions and international data transfers (including BCRs) as well as internal and consumer-facing policy reviews, privacy audits, data protection impact assessments as well as dealing with cybersecurity incidents and breaches. I have also been involved on numerous projects related to whistleblowing and employee monitoring and I regularly advise on e-marketing, cookies, profiling and behavioral advertising matters.

Prior to joining Fieldfisher, I worked at Amazon for over five years where I focused on Privacy and Product Compliance for new launches within various businesses.

I have particular expertise working with in-house lawyers on global compliance projects and liaising directly with the business and technical teams to achieve effective and practical legal implementation.

My experience in the technology sector has involved me working with start-ups, large multinationals and non-government organisations in digital media, e-commerce, data, fintech, biotech as well as telecoms projects.

I am a member of the Argentinian Bar Association (Abogada) and I am currently studying to become a solicitor in England and Wales by passing the QLTS. I am also a member of the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP).

I have particular interest in new legal developments in emerging economies, especially how EU laws are influencing regulatory changes and compliance practices in Latin America. I often advise clients on such practices and provide pragmatic solutions for their businesses.

I am fluent in Spanish, English and Italian and I have good conversational knowledge of French and Portuguese. I love arts and travelling as well as training, so in my spare time, you can find me exploring new cities, attending concerts or keeping fit running or at the gym.
