Eldon Takitimu, Senior Associate, Privacy, Security and Information
I specialise in the area of privacy, security and information law and provide strategic and tactical advice on the full range of information related issues affecting businesses. I specialise in providing commercially-focussed and pragmatic advice to international organisations and helping them with large scale GDPR compliance projects, data export solutions (including BCR), breach management, cookie compliance, privacy impact assessments, privacy by design, user rights, internal and external facing policy reviews and commercial negotiations.
I am admitted as a Barrister and Solicitor of the High Court of New Zealand but have spent the majority of my career practising in London.
I have strongly practical focus to my risk-based advice and aim to help my clients reach commercially viable compliance outcomes. I have the unique insight that comes from having worked both public and private sector before joining Fieldfisher, including having practised as a Data Protection Officer and in-house at a major global telecommunications provider.
I have provided advice to a wide range of businesses across the telecommunications, advertising, retail, cloud technologies, media, public, local government and financial services sectors.
I have spoken on data protection and privacy issues in the UK and abroad and provided specialist training in this field.
In my spare time I enjoy playing rugby and cricket (badly) and watching sport.
