Talent Spotlight

Jenny New

PQE : 20+ years
Legal Speciality : Commercial and contract law, Banking, Financial Services and Data Privacy
Client Served To-Date : TBBBBBDDDDD????

'[Other lawyers] think "Oh, I've done data privacy all my life; I've got to stick to that. I can't do anything that takes me away from that." But for me, I had a skill in being able to turn my hand to different things and be able to view how projects are carried out in various companies. Different subject matters, but similar projects.'
