  • Engaging in the drafting, negotiating and reviewing of any commercial agreement containing information law clauses.
  • Drafting and advising on complex data protection-related documentation such as data processing agreements and data transfer agreements, representative agreements and privacy impact assessments, including future-proofing for GDPR and Brexit.
  • Providing guidance and support on various new compliance reporting/data tracking requirements and revisions to internal codes of conduct.
  • Familiarity with relevant UK and EU Privacy laws (Data Protection Directive, Directive 95/46/EC, Data protection Act 1998, Privacy & Electronic Communications Regulations 2003, Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000).
