About Me

I am an associate in Bird & Bird's International Privacy and Data Protection Group, based in the Dublin office where I am a member of the Irish Privacy & Data Protection team. I advise across a broad spectrum of privacy and data protection issues.

My experience covers all areas of data protection law. I have extensive experience advising domestic and multinational companies on regulatory strategy and response to the Data Protection Commission in the context of statutory inquiries, information requests and complaint handling. I advise on a number of large-scale regulatory issues, including in relation to (i) large-scale data subject access request strategy and response; (ii) cyber incident response; and (iii) DPIAs.

I have additional experience advising on largescale GDPR compliance projects and data transfer and sharing arrangements, with a focus on the underlying contractual frameworks required by such projects.

Prior to joining Bird & Bird, I qualified into the Technology & Innovation Group of a leading Irish law firm, spending two years there before leaving to pursue an LLM in International Human Rights Law at the University of Galway. During my LLM year, I maintained my commercial practice, working in the Technology Group of another leading Irish firm through a flexible service model.

Given my background, I am passionate about privacy as a collective and individual human right. I have particular interest in the intersection of business, human rights and surveillance technologies, as well as the European framework on human rights and its interaction with data protection regimes.
