I am an information law specialist advising clients on a broad range of data and privacy issues. My practice includes advising on the Data Protection Act 2018 and the General Data Protection Regulation, Freedom of Information Act 2000, Environmental Information Regulations 2004, Access to Health Records Act 1990 and the common law duty of confidence. I regularly advise on managing and responding to subject access requests and FOI requests. I also advise clients on how to handle data breaches and enforcement action taken by the ICO.
With my previous experience as a projects solicitor, I understand the commercial framework in which the data protection legislation operates and can provide practical advice on the drafting and implementation of data processing/sharing agreements, policies and protocols. This includes providing advice on international data transfers and the use of data processors.
