Work Department

I am an experienced commercial lawyer, with well over a decade of experience in working and building relationships with corporate counsel, procurement and compliance teams. I have a particular interest in all things technology and data related – e-commerce, software development, IT outsourcing, data protection, freedom of information, data security and all things digital.

I have a keen interest in technology - in its use to ease the burden of compliance responsibilities, but also in its application in business, and advises clients on their technology licensing and development, and, particularly pertinent regarding licence compliance issues, the use of open source software.

From conducting data protection audits, overseeing the development of compliant CRM solutions, advising businesses on how to integrate their data and the public sector on when they are able to exploit their data, and working both to achieve the disclosure of data, and protect it when disclosure would have been detrimental under the Freedom of Information Act, there are very few aspects of the legislation she haven't scrutinised.
