As an associate in our Commercial practice, I advise clients on various commercial matters relating to contract law, data protection and other regulatory issues. I specialise in data protection and privacy and advise on a range of international and local data protection compliance projects, including the implementation of GDPR strategies, drafting policies and performing data protection audits.Before joining Bird & Bird I worked at one of the largest Nordic banks, where I advised business owners and IT-developers in various GDPR compliance projects. In this role I gained significant experience of practical data protection work, but most importantly I learnt the importance of understanding the business strategy. I find my experience from the bank to be of great value in my daily work with our clients. In addition to data protection, I have a great interest in new technologies and am a member of the Technology & Communications, Financial Services and Life Sciences sector groups, where we have leading knowledge of the legal challenges that stem from the rapid technological development and digitalisation.I am often described as a people person, which I see as one of my greatest skills. In my work, I strive to build strong client relationships, combining a commercial understanding of the clients' business with personal communication.
