About Me

As a senior associate in our Privacy and Data Protection Group in London, I work with a variety of organisations on their data and privacy matters.

My experience covers all aspects of information law: from the GDPR, to ePrivacy and Freedom of Information. I enjoy finding practical solutions to difficult questions: be that building a data protection compliance programme within a difficult culture, advising on grey spaces like on-device processing and biometrics, or just finding a calm way to manage stressful moments such as security incidents.

I work with all kinds of organisations, but have a particular interest in matters involving AI and new technologies.

Separately, I have particular experience working on HR data and employment-adjacent privacy matters; such as recruitment, investigations, and (most recently) novel questions posed by the Coronavirus pandemic.

I'll happily digress (on my own time) into discussions about the geekier aspects of privacy if prompted - from the walled garden of big tech to the walled gardens of Victorian society.

Before joining our firm, I spent over six years at another private practice firm, where I advised companies, public sector organisations, and international NGOs on data and privacy.
