Protecting and growing businesses – from start-ups to international corporate organisations
Helena is an experienced Lawyer, Data Protection Officer, Public Speaker and Coach.
Helena is an expert in data protection and freedom of information law and she leads our data protection team, working closely with colleagues in the technology, education, insurance, retail, public, financial services, manufacturing and distribution sectors. Helena regularly speaks on the subjects at national and international conferences. She is a member of the Data Protection Forum and Data Protection Finance Group.
Having worked with over 150 businesses and other organisations through implementation of the GDPR, she has established a compliance framework and assists organisations with data mapping, Legitimate Interest Assessments, Data Protection Impact Assessments and Records of Processing Activities – all necessary to demonstrate accountability, and transparency as required by the Information Commissioner and other regulators.
As well as advising major corporates and start-up businesses on how to comply with the law, Helena has a great deal of experience advising and defending clients who are being investigated by the Information Commissioner or who have suffered a data breach.
Helena is bilingual in French and English and is experienced in discussing an organisation’s data privacy and commercial issues in plain language relevant to each context – in short, she speaks your language, is engaged, builds connections and makes life easy.
Beyond GDPR, Helena has extensive experience in commercial contracts, including partnerships, affinity arrangements, outsourcing, supply, distribution and agency contracts. Having worked in house at Capital One (Europe) plc, Mellon Financial Corporation, and with HBOS and HSBC, Helena has substantial experience with customer facing terms, investment management agreements and other financial services arrangements.
Her extensive background in commercial law, as a barrister, solicitor, in-house counsel and partner in a national top 20 law firm makes her a safe pair of hands and an exceptional advisor, coach and mentor.
