Hogan Lovells hires leading data protection expert in London
Hogan Lovells has hired a leading European privacy and data protection lawyer, Eduardo Ustaran, from Field Fisher Waterhouse. Ustaran will join the firm’s London office to lead the European team of Hogan Lovellls’ global Privacy and Information Management practice.
Ustaran leaves behind a role as Head of the Privacy and Information Law Group at Field Fisher Waterhouse - a position he has held for the last ten years.
Christopher Wolf, global Co-Head of Hogan Lovells Privacy and Information Management practice said, “We already have a strong privacy team in the US, London and in continental Europe, handling US, UK and multi-jurisdictional data protection projects. Eduardo will significantly boost our capabilities in this area.”
He added: “ In particular, Eduardo has a highly-regarded track record in advising on complex and business-critical data protection issues, including his involvement in the development of the future EU data protection framework through his advisory role to the UK Ministry of Justice.”
