Erica is a senior associate in our commercial group. She focuses in data protection and cyber law.

Based in London, Erica has experience in a wide range of data privacy issues arising under GDPR, the Data Protection Act 2018 and related laws, including the adoption of new technologies and novel data processing, large scale multi-jurisdictional data compliance reviews, cybersecurity and multi-jurisdictional data breach incidents, corporate transactions, data sharing, data export/transfer and direct marketing compliance.

Erica has a particular focus on the TMT and Life Sciences sectors, and has a keen interest in emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence and biotech.

She is ranked Chambers and Partners as an Associate to Watch (Global 2021) and in Legal500 as a rising star (TMT) and is currently pursuing a Masters in Data Science to further her understanding of the technical considerations underpinning her privacy and cyber work.
