Richard Lawne, Solicitor, Privacy, Security and Information

Richard Lawne, Solicitor, 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.

My experience ranges from advising a range of clients on the General Data Protection Regulation and e-Privacy Directive to drafting International Data Transfer Agreements and negotiating Data Processing Agreements. I have managed complex data subject rights requests and drafted complex data privacy assessments. I also spent six months on secondment to our Silicon Valley Office where I developed a continuing interest in ad-tech. I am a member of the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP).

Before joining the Privacy, Security and Information team, I completed seats in Fieldfisher's Property Litigation, IP and Technology Protection and Enforcement and Dispute Resolution departments. I also have previous experience working in broadcasting and media and in a number of in-house and public sector roles.

I am actively involved in the firm’s CSR activities. I speak French and in my spare time enjoy playing water polo, hiking and photography.
