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.
