A transactional and advisory lawyer, Lisa assists clients with all aspects of data, technology, media and telecommunications.

“The regulatory environment around data is exploding” Lisa said.

“From consumer data rights to digital ID platforms, mandatory data breach notification, foreign privacy laws with extra-territorial effect, developments in IoT, Artificial Intelligence, blockchain and controversial encryption laws - the impact of the digital economy is being felt everywhere.

“When a single security incident can impact confidential information, personal information, customer experience, data quality, contractual obligations and directors’ duties - it’s not something clients can afford to ignore,” Lisa said.
