What can I do for you?

I operate a dual-practice covering both cyber security and financial services. As part of a specialist information law, data protection and privacy team, I help clients respond appropriately to systems breaches, advise on information systems governance, and bring or defend resulting claims. I am also highly experienced in financial services regulation and litigation. I can help you identify the regulatory provisions applying to your business, defend you in litigation regarding financial products, and manage your defence in regulatory enforcement proceedings.

Supporting my clients’ objectives

I work hand-in-hand with a clients’ management and employees to steer them through their respective regulatory landscapes, advise on cost-effective and practical solutions, and optimise outcomes. I guide clients in their response to breaches of their obligations, from the moment of discovery through to the conclusion of subsequent proceedings. I also support clients proactively seeking to comply with ongoing legal and regulatory obligations – preparing policies and procedures, advising on contractual clauses, and counselling clients facing specific situations.

What do others say?

Legal 500 praises Mills & Reeve LLP for its “excellent eye for detail” and “fast, responsive, pragmatic and professional” lawyers. With Tier 1 Commercial Litigation and Information Technology provision, Mills and Reeve is a “fantastic firm to work with'. The firm has the only national banking and finance practice in the region and its lawyers are recommended for their “industry knowledge, commercial approach and for being readily at clients’ disposal for ad-hoc advice”.

What else should you know?

As well as publishing articles and blog entries, I welcome requests to provide training in cyber and information law issues.
