Senior Data Protection/Privacy Associate – Partnership Potential – 5PQE - £200k
This global law firm leads the way in providing bespoke legal advice to the high technology sector. An opportunity has arisen for a specialist data/privacy lawyer to join the firm’s London team which houses some of the very best known and respected technology lawyers, whose data protection partner is the global contact in the firm.
The team advise on a wide range of cross-border data protection and data management issues arising from, for example: new EU legislation; outsourcing and cloud computing arrangements; and out of regulatory changes/investigations and cross-border litigation. You will get great exposure to an enviable roster of clients spanning a diverse range of sectors, thereby keeping your practice wonderfully varied. You must be able to operate with a good amount of autonomy, running your own matters as appropriate. Whilst the wider team is known for its IT/Outsourcing credentials, this is a purely data protection focussed role, so the ideal candidate will not only want to focus in this area, but have excellent and significant experience of data and privacy matters.
The team is a collegiate one, led by wholly lovely partners who are very willing sponsors and mentors – the right person can certainly make partner given their expansion plans.
The successful candidate may come from one of the City’s top ranked data/IT/TMT teams but equally could come from a smaller firm seeking access to larger matters.
