Our client, an international law firm, is looking for a senior associate to join their Data Protection and Cybersecurity team in London. The firm has established itself as an international leader across matters involving technology and data.

You will be reporting directly to the chair of the global data protection team and will be helping supervise a substantial team of junior associates. You will also work closely with the teams across the firm’s European offices, operating as a global practice. Work will include all regulatory matters pertaining to GDPR and data privacy, as well as helping clients prepare and respond to cyber security incidents and providing risk assessments and strategic advice. You will have substantial support from the firm’s litigation team to help provide a full service to clients affected by data breaches. Your work will include advising on the data aspects of a wide variety of new and emerging technologies, including Internet of Things, cloud computing, and programmatic marketing.

They are looking for someone with a passion for advising on data protection, privacy, and cybersecurity issues. They are open to considering both individuals who currently specialise in data protection and those who have some substantial experience but would like to focus on the area going forward. You must have at least six years of post-qualification experience and excellent academic credentials. You must be qualified in England & Wales or the Republic of Ireland.

The firm strives for a positive and supportive working environment, enforcing an open-door policy, and focuses on developing and promoting associates from within. As a result, there will be excellent opportunities for career progression in this role going forward. The firm’s work/life balance is very impressive when compared with similar corporate firms, and the firms offers a range of benefits and perks for those who do have to work late on occasion.
