Benjamin Favaro

Senior Associate, Lewis Silkin LLP

Benjamin practises exclusively in all things data protection and privacy, but he has a particular interest in workplace privacy issues because of his background in employment law and having worked briefly on secondment as an in-house privacy lawyer for a leading London based food delivery technology company.

As a member of the Ius Laboris Data Privacy Expert Group and holding the CIPP/E data protection/privacy accreditation from the International Association of Privacy Professionals,

he has an interest in data issues flowing out of new technologies and AI.

When in doubt when it comes to data privacy, his key takeaway is to put yourself in the shoes of the data subject and picture the issue through their eyes.
