I am a partner in our International Privacy & Data Protection Group. I specialise in fintech and payments and divide my time between our offices in London and Madrid.

I have significant experience of international data protection from both in-house and private practice perspective and I cover the full range of privacy and data protection advice.

My main area of expertise is fintech and payments where I regularly advise leading global players in this sector.

I have experience in global project management and coordinating relevant expertise from different offices and across multiple jurisdictions.

Prior to joining Bird & Bird in 2017, I established the privacy team at PayPal in EMEA, built a global privacy programme and led the process to obtain new BCRs (controller and processor) following the separation from eBay.

I am a regular speaker on data protection issues at international events and I have also lectured on LL.M and specialist courses in the past. I am a member of the Madrid Bar Association.
