Bevan Brittan has announced its latest senior hire of 2024 with the arrival of a new Partner who will lead its Information Law & Privacy team.

The appointment of Bristol-based Vicki Bowles signals the latest stage of investment by the firm in privacy and information law, as it sees an increase in client demand for such services across all of its markets.

Vicki will add her extensive experience to the existing knowledge base at Bevan Brittan and play a key role in developing the firm’s offering in a growing area that continues to evolve due to changing UK and EU laws, the tech sector and AI.

A qualified barrister with significant expertise in privacy and information law, including data protection and freedom of information, Vicki joins from her previous role as a Partner at law firm VWV.

The former Charity Commission and HM Revenue & Customs lawyer has worked with a wide variety of clients from start-ups to tech companies, charities, schools and commercial businesses. She specialises in complex and strategic issues as well as day-to-day compliance matters. 

Vicki said: “This is an exciting opportunity in a rapidly-developing and expanding area of law. I am delighted to join a team which has already got significant experience in this area and I look forward to helping to grow and develop our offering further in the coming months and years.

“Together, we will develop a full suite of information law services that not only effectively reacts to new developments, but also helps clients identify and successfully navigate key challenges and opportunities which lay ahead.”

Adam Kendall, Partner and Head of the Litigation, Advisory & Regulatory department at Bevan Brittan, said: “Vicki’s experience and track record speak for themselves and she is a hugely valuable addition to the team we have been building in the exciting area of information law. 

“A growing number of private and public sector clients are seeking our advice on such matters, with issues such as AI and tech legislation increasingly coming to the fore of people’s planning. We see this as a specialism where we can add real value for clients and help them succeed as technology and the law around it evolves constantly.”

Vicki’s arrival comes after a busy four months for Bevan Brittan, which has also welcomed corporate and commercial Partner Faisal Dhalla and commercial health Partner Lucy Doran. Housing finance Partner Katie Dyer and corporate and regulatory Partner Rose Klemperer have joined its growing Housing team too.
