Multinational law firm Pinsent Masons has hired partner Jonathan Kirsop as a key addition to its leading data privacy and information law offering.
Jonny advises a wide range of clients on data privacy with particular focus on the financial services sector. His range of expertise spans contractual and regulatory advice, data subject access requests, international data transfers as well as providing broader technology, data and commercial expertise.
He joins the firm from Stephenson Harwood where he established and led the information law practice within their commercial, outsourcing and technology team.
Jonny will assist in the further development of Pinsent Masons' information and data privacy law capabilities in London, particularly to the firm's financial services clients, as well as working with partners within the rest of the UK, across Europe and Asia Pacific offices.
Simon Colvin, Head of the Technology, Media and Telecoms practice at Pinsent Masons said "Data and privacy is at the heart of the business for most of our clients. As the regulatory landscape continues to evolve, Jonny brings valuable expertise to support clients, particularly in the heavily regulated financial services sector, as their needs for support and advice on all things information and data privacy law grow and become more complex."
Laura Cameron, Head of Risk Advisory Services at Pinsent Masons said, "The demand for data and privacy advice has increased exponentially and it has become a boardroom issue for businesses. Jonny is a key addition to the firm at this time, as the continued development of technology and indeed the strategic use of, and protection of, data is a business critical issue for all organisations."
