Bevan Brittan appoints new Partner to lead Information Law team
I am an information law specialist with particular expertise in advising clients on the new Data Protection regime including compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation and the Data Protection Act 2018. My work also covers all aspects of information law and privacy including the Freedom of Information Act 2000, Environmental Information Regulations 2004, Access to Health Records Act 1990 and the Common Law Duty of Confidence. I have advised clients on data breaches and enforcement action taken by the ICO.
I have experience of conducting data protection compliance audits for clients and drafting information sharing agreements, policies, data flows and protocols. I have advised extensively on the impact of GDPR and provide regular training to clients on compliance and regulatory issues. Given the level of complexity and uncertainty in relation to information law, I pride myself on providing practical advice and identifying solutions for clients.
My experience covers all sectors, but I have a particular understanding of the health sector and was previously the Head of Legal at a NHS Foundation Trust.
I have experience of advising clients on more general healthcare matters including best interests cases, child protection issues and medical ethics. I also have experience of regulatory law including acting for and on behalf of regulators in professional discipline matters alongside advising on compliance with a number of compliance regimes including the CQC.
