Alexander de Gaye, Privacy Advisor - Privacy, Security and Information

Alexander de Gaye, Privacy Advisor - Privacy, Security and Information, Fieldfisher

I am a solicitor specialising in Data Protection and a member of Fieldfisher's top-ranked Privacy, Security and Information team.  I am currently on temporary secondment to our Silicon Valley Office.

My experience ranges from negotiating Data Processing Agreements via drafting International Data Transfer Agreements to advising on new product implementation.  On a daily basis I explain the new European rules to US clients in an understandable way.  I am developing particular expertise in the fast-moving area of ad-tech.

Before joining the Privacy, Security and Information team, I spent seats in our Clinical Negligence, EU Regulatory and Financial Services departments.  This built on my five years’ legal experience prior to joining Fieldfisher in a variety of public sector, City firm and in-house roles.

I have published articles in the Privacy & Data Protection Journal and Bloomberg BNA and I blog regularly.  I have presented at internal and external events, including the annual Fieldfisher Privacy Summit and led the inaugural International Association of Privacy Professionals session in Salt Lake City.

I am actively involved in the firm’s CSR and social aspects, and was named CSR NQ/Solicitor of the Year 2016/17. I have travelled extensively and worked in six countries. I speak French and Japanese to conversational level.

In my spare time I enjoy cinema, running marathons and practicing yoga.
