I'm an associate in our Privacy and Data Protection Group in London, helping organisations navigate privacy and cybersecurity rules across jurisdictions and sectors, from healthcare to consumer technology.
I offer extensive experience advising our clients on privacy and data security requirements, in particular the EU's GDPR and UK and EU e-Privacy rules.
The breadth of my practice – spanning advisory, public policy, transactional and contentious work – is matched by its depth in areas such as life sciences (pharma, biotech and medical devices), eHealth, telecoms and the use of cloud computing and AI in regulated sectors. I am equally at ease helping pharma companies with their research consents and collaboration agreements, as I am advising cloud-based services react to global law enforcement demands.
Before joining Bird & Bird in 2018, I spent over five years working with a US law firm, including four years in its Tier 1 EU data protection practice.
In both London and Brussels, I have supported clients in major privacy and data protection cases before the EU Court of Justice and the US Supreme Court, and have represented the interests of clients and industry associations before UK and EU policymakers and regulators.
I trained as molecular biologist at Oxford and realised that I could get a much broader exposure to new technologies, while helping organisations develop and benefit from them, by becoming a lawyer.
I now have a broad and fulfilling practice, with clients that I greatly admire and enjoy working with. It's a privilege to be able to help them navigate the increasingly complex global regulatory environment for data and digital services, with a focus on providing them with rigorous, efficient and pragmatic solutions.
