Paddy is a regulatory lawyer who is principally focused on information law and digital commerce. 

“My role is to help clients understand the various regulations (particularly the GDPR) surrounding data and how they apply to their business. I advise on implementing and maintaining data protection compliance frameworks and responding to GDPR requests from individuals.

Dealing with regulators such as the ICO is often a very complex but business critical process. I have significant experience in guiding platforms and other digital services through ICO investigations and appeals and am pleased to consistently achieve excellent results for my clients.

My digital commerce experience means that I am a specialist in advising digital services on how to use data innovatively without breaching the requirements of the GDPR.

My work is frequently cross-border, including advising on and coordinating multi-jurisdiction projects in areas including OTT services and online financial services.”


He is very good technically and a really good communicator of his client's position.
