Alexandra Leonidou

Career and experience

Alexandra leads our Data, Privacy and Information Security team and specialises in advising clients on Data Protection, Data Privacy, Information Law, Digital Media, Digital Advertising and Adtech, and Advertising and Marketing regulation. She enjoys seeing the genuine and growing enthusiasm for all things data within the firm, largely generated by her team of passionate subject-matter experts.

Alexandra is driven by the desire to do things differently from a lot of other legal providers in the market. Her extended period of working in-house on data-related matters has given her a very clear idea of what “excellent” looks like in this area and how to deliver it to clients. She knows first-hand that it can be a real challenge for clients to manage data risk while progressing their strategic data-driven business plans and pursuing opportunities.  As a result, Alexandra has a clear and very deliberate focus on delivering pragmatic, usable, business-enabling advice.

Kept very busy with her two little boys, outside of work Alexandra is currently (rather optimistically) training for a(nother) half marathon but loves almost nothing more than a magazine and a glass of wine – simple pleasures!
