Yuli Takatsuki, Director, Privacy, Security & Information, Fieldfisher

I am a European technology and privacy law specialist at Fieldfisher's Silicon Valley office. I am a dual-qualified English barrister and California attorney.

I advise mainly US technology companies - from startups to multinationals - on all aspects of privacy and data protection law including GDPR compliance, international data transfers, new and disruptive technologies, privacy in M&A, cookies and tracking, privacy by design, cloud computing & big data, global data management, and data privacy transacting and litigation.   

I provide commercial and strategic advice to clients in a variety of sectors encompassing social media, ecommerce, telecommunications, ad tech, cloud technologies, media, fin tech and health.  

Prior to Fieldfisher, I was a London barrister specializing in media and privacy litigation. I have also worked as lead data privacy counsel at Channel 4.  I am a co-author of leading legal texts: "The Law of Privacy and the Media"​ (OUP) and "Media Law and Ethics in the 21st Century" (Palgrave Macmillan) and speak regularly at international conferences and industry events.

In my spare time, I love spending time with family, cooking (and eating!) Japanese food, exploring the world through travels, and playing the piano.
