A regulatory enforcement lawyer at the Information Commissioner’s Office, Aaminah Khan, has joined St John’s Buildings.
Khan, who specialises in data and information law, spent 11 years at the watchdog working on some of its most high profile and complex investigations, including the investigation into data misuse in political campaigns.
Called to the Bar in 2001, she advises in respect of data protection, GDPR compliance, and subject access requests. “She has a particular interest in the overlap between other offences and cybercrime more generally,” St John’s Buildings said.
Chris Ronan, Chief Executive at St John’s Buildings, said: “The laws around data protection and information are increasingly gaining the attention of both the media and the general public, so it is an excellent time to welcome Aaminah. Her wealth of expertise in this complex and specialist area resonates strongly with St John’s Buildings, as we work towards becoming the leading chambers in the field of legal technology.”
