Data Protection Solicitor
For solicitors who are genuine data protection specialists, unsurprisingly there has never been a better time to find a new role in Leeds!
This top tier global firm has a national team of nearly twenty data protection specialists and they are now looking to expand in Leeds where they have the smallest presence. Globally, they have a team of over ninety.
The team covers the full range of privacy, data protection, GDPR and cyber and information law (both FOI and EIR) and is genuinely cross-sector across all the sectors that the firm works in, both public and private, acting for major public authorities, major banks and the full range of household name corporates across retail, financial services, leisure, diversified industrials, lifesciences etc, as well as smaller regional clients.
They are an incredibly cohesive team, despite being based in offices around the country, with regular group calls, team meetings, an understanding of the the strengths of the different members of the team and a free flow of work and support between them on a regular basis, as well as plenty of collaborative working on projects which bring together different people's skills.
The work is very varied and intellectually stimulating as well as interesting and sometimes takes in contentious work as well as strategic advisory work and covers a broader remit than some people would associate with data protection. This is very much a growing practice for the firm as a whole, and growing in diversity all the time.
They are keen to speak to lawyers with upwards of 3 years' experience in this area, and can happily accommodate part time / flex time lawyers as well as full time. They have a really strong training and development culture with both internal and external training on offer, particularly in this ever-changing area of law, and the salary packages on offer are top of the market.
