I am a member of the Legal Counsel Services team, and I joined Vialex after having spent a number of years working as an in house legal advisor for companies in the energy and financial sectors. I provide tailored advice and assistance to clients on all aspects of commercial contracts, but am primarily involved in advising upon matters of data protection compliance. In an increasingly complex and challenging regulatory environment, I aim to help steer clients through the issues and achieve compliance while maintaining a commercial, pragmatic and cost-effective approach. The laws affecting data privacy and information and communication technologies are rapidly changing making it one of the most exciting and unpredictable areas of practice.
Being able to work closely with our clients and helping them to achieve the best outcome, is the most rewarding part of my job. Having gained considerable experience working in house, I understand how important it is to communicate effectively with my clients and understand their commercial needs and requirements, the key being helping them to manage risk. Being a good listener and knowing the right questions to ask is vital. I am at my most happy when I have received great feedback from clients for satisfaction with our services.
