I am head of our Data & Privacy practice group.

I am also a member of our employment and partnership practice groups. I have over 20 years’ experience advising on a wide range of matters across a variety of sectors but with an emphasis on professional and financial services.

As a specialist in workplace privacy I head up our workplace privacy team and advise on the full range of workplace data issues. I am called on to speak about employment privacy issues at conferences and events, both nationally and internationally.

I also have considerable experience of high court litigation and arbitrations including restrictive covenants, team moves, garden leave and confidential information and partnership disputes. In the Employment Tribunals I have defended my clients against sensitive and high value allegations of discrimination.
