Kate advises clients on all aspects of law associated with “data”.  This ranges from “personal data” (about identifiable people) and the impact of the EU General Data Protection Regulation in force in 2018, to industrial data, trade secrets and confidentiality.  Cyber security law is a growing part of her practice. 

Over some 20 years in the city, Kate has built a reputation as a “go to” person for strategic and pragmatic data privacy advice on complex projects and issues.  She enjoys grappling with the subtleties of data protection and security; her aim, though, is to focus on the issues which really matter for her clients and to work collaboratively with them to arrive at clear and practical solutions. 

Contributing author to the Financial Regulation: Emerging Themes in 2018 publication – an extensive collection of articles on key topics including competition, individual accountability, financial crime, data protection, MiFID II and much more.
