What do you focus on for your clients

I am an experienced commercial and regulatory lawyer with a breadth of experience gained both in private practice and in-house across a variety of industries, including technology, telecoms, media and utilities. I have particular expertise in privacy and data protection (I hold the CIPP/E certification and have acted as a Data Protection Officer). I also have substantial experience in procurement law, as well as a wide range of commercial matters ranging from standard terms and conditions through to large-scale IT outsourcing agreements.

Tell us about your professional background

I trained with a major national firm before moving in-house taking up a role at Thames Water. I then spent nine years in the BBC’s legal department where I was involved in a diverse range of commercial, data protection, procurement and Freedom of Information issues. Since joining Halebury I have had placements with BT plc in their Business and Public Sector legal team, Centrica Plc where I acted as an interim Data Protection Officer and latterly with PwC’s in-house privacy team.

Our team at Halebury have […]
