Georgina is an experienced data and technology lawyer, specialising in data protection and privacy, exploitation of data, intellectual property rights in data, digital regulation and technology transactions.
Georgina advises clients on a full range of data-related issues, with a particular focus on data protection and privacy compliance. She also supports our data litigation team, providing technical advice on complaints, civil claims and regulatory investigations relating to alleged breaches of data protection and privacy laws.
Outside of data protection and privacy, Georgina advises on, drafts and negotiates software, technology and licensing arrangements, and the protection and exploitation of data and intellectual property rights in that context.
Georgina provides practical, focussed advice to businesses in a range of sectors, particularly in the Technology, Media and Communications, Retail, and Energy sectors. A lot of her work involves advising international telecoms businesses, broadcasters and digital media providers, social media platforms, retailers, energy companies and large house builders.
Helping you succeed in tomorrow's world
Transformation: Data is the raw ingredient for digital transformation; businesses across all sectors are collecting, using, sharing and exploiting data in ways that they may not have done previously. Osborne Clarke was recently named by Global Data Review as one of the world's top 20 data law firms, and as part of that team, I support businesses to maximise the value of data in a legally compliant, strategic and commercial way.
Culture: As the co-chair of our OC Gender network, I seek to provide opportunities and a voice to everyone, no matter their gender. My particular focus – in the legal profession and more broadly – is championing female progression and challenging the social norms about parental care and responsibility, and the interaction between family and work life.
