Hogan Lovells' Privacy and Cybersecurity practice is widely regarded as one of the world's leading teams in this increasingly business-critical area.

Commenting on Nicola's arrival, Alice Valder Curran, Global Head of Hogan Lovells Government Regulatory Practice Group, said: "Nicola is a highly-regarded data privacy specialist with an established reputation, and we are delighted to welcome her to our team. We have seen the increasing importance that data protection laws and policy decisions have on our clients' operations in the last few years. Adding Nicola to our existing team will boost our offering and enable us to respond to this growing demand."

Eduardo Ustaran, co-director of the global Privacy and Cybersecurity practice at Hogan Lovells, commented: "This is an important aspect of our strategy for the future. Nicola brings with her deep knowledge and expertise, as well as the right business-oriented approach to this fascinating area of law. She is an ideal fit for our global team."

Nicola Fulford added: "I am thrilled to be joining a world-renowned Privacy and Cybersecurity practice at Hogan Lovells. The firm has real expertise and a truly global footprint, and I look forward to working with an outstanding group of colleagues around the world."

Prior to her appointment to Kemp Little in 2013, Nicola worked in-house at UBS and undertook secondments at Google and IBM.
