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 seconded to our Silicon Valley Office.

My experience ranges from drafting an international Data Transfer Agreement for a multinational tech giant, through data breach management, to instructing a leading counsel for an Information Tribunal appeal.  I am particularly interested in data issues within the medical sector and participate in Fieldfisher's specialist Med-Tech group. 

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 on privacy matters at internal and external events, including the annual Fieldfisher Privacy Summit.

I am actively involved in the firm’s CSR and social aspects, and was recently named CSR NQ/Solicitor of the Year.

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.
