Dan Pearson arrives at Humphreys Law to spearhead focus on data


umphreys Law are thrilled to announce the arrival of Dan Pearson as a Senior Consultant to the team. Dan is here to lead our focus on data, i.e. advising on the fast-evolving rules (including GDPR) around how data can be protected, utilised, collected and transferred (within and cross borders).

Dan trained and qualified at Linklaters (into a team litigating and resolving disputes involving derivatives and other complex financial instruments) before going in-house in a senior role with the Tesco plc legal team. Most recently Dan served as general counsel at Feesat (the digital satellite television joint venture between the BBC and ITV plc).

Dan Pearson commented: “I am immensely looking forward to joining the Humphreys Law team and working with its portfolio of disruptive digital technology businesses. The landscape in respect of data is changing and all businesses, especially those in the digital technology sector, have to navigate the pitfalls if they are to succeed.”

Henry Humphreys commented: “We are all excited to be joined by a lawyer of Dan’s calibre, we walk-the-walk when it comes to providing cutting-edge advice and right now just about every business needs to know how it can operate within the rules to protect and utilize its data. Looking forward to working with you Dan!”
