I am a senior Data Privacy lawyer with over 20 years' experience advising businesses on European and English Data Protection law. I help clients navigate this complex area of law in an accessible and commercial way, enabling them to achieve their business objectives in compliance with data protection law.

Before Arbor I was a Director in the International Privacy Center of Expertise at WarnerBros Discovery. Prior to this, my roles include European Data Protection Counsel at Yum! Brands, Senior Data Protection Counsel at Richemont and founder of a data protection consultancy. I also won a scholarship from Lincoln’s Inn for a three month stage at the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg.

Legal Specialities

I head up Arbor’s Data Privacy practice group, advising clients across a wide range of sectors including digital, media, travel, e-commerce, luxury goods, healthcare, FMCG, Financial Services and aerospace. At the strategic level, I help organisations implement global data protection programmes from the development of global data protection policies and related processes and procedures to building data protection teams.

My practice covers the full range of data protection issues including audits, data transfers, contract reviews, marketing compliance and supporting clients who have suffered data breaches or complaints from the regulator. I also advise clients on dealings with data protection authorities.

What Clients Say

That I’m business focussed, responsive and practical in my advice. That I take the time to understand their business and provide data protection advice that is clear and actionable and relevant.

Behind the lawyer

When not lawyering, I spend my time playing tennis, designing and making greetings cards and practising my language skills, in particular Spanish and French.
