I am an associate in our Privacy and Data Protection Group, based in London. While my experience as an NHS doctor gives me a deep understanding of the healthcare and life sciences sectors, I also enjoy advising clients in a variety of sectors, from tech & comms to retail & consumer, on a wide range of data protection and marketing issues.
I work with our international offices to support UK and international clients in navigating data protection and privacy law including the implementation of GDPR compliance projects; providing strategic legal advice; and responding to data breaches.
In 2020 I spent ten months on secondment with the Information Commissioner's Office. This experience has given me rare insight into ICO culture, and the approaches taken in many aspects of its role as a regulator including establishing policy positions, responding to complaints and consulting on Data Protection Impact Assessments.
I am passionate about Corporate Social Responsibility and Diversity and Inclusion. Through the firm I have been able to participate in community outreach projects providing legal themed workshops to school children from disadvantaged backgrounds. I am also a member of the committee for our LGBTQ+ network, StandOUT; and an active member of our Black, Asian and minority ethnic network, Embrace.
