Multinational law firm Pinsent Masons has hired partner Emily Cox to join the firm’s Technology, Media, Telecoms (TMT) Disputes team in London.

Emily joins from Stewarts where she has been a partner for the past three years, having previously worked at Linklaters and the consumer association Which?.

Head of Pinsent Masons’ TMT Disputes team, David Barker, said: “Emily has a wealth of experience in complex litigation and contentious matters, and will add further strength in depth to our team’s offering to clients.

“She has particular experience in data privacy litigation and media disputes, both areas in which we see continued market demand for technically strong and client-focused partners. Emily’s practice has a focus on developing class actions, both in data privacy and in the competition space, which we see as increasingly important for our tech clients.”

Pinsent Masons’ TMT Disputes team recently scored a notable victory for Google in the UK Supreme Court in the landmark data privacy class claim Lloyd v Google.

Commenting on her appointment, Emily added: "I am thrilled to join Pinsent Masons, with its innovative and international mindset. David Barker and his team have built a great practice in this area, already instructed in some of the most cutting-edge data privacy litigation in the market. I look forward to helping tech and media clients by further developing our complementary strengths."

Emily’s appointment follows a series of recent lateral hire in the technology, science and industry sector with Jeroen Schouten, Michael Stewart, James Marshall, Jaya Handa, Eleanor Ludlam and Kristina Cornish joining Pinsent Masons since the beginning of the year.
