Legal Considerations for Startups masterclass series

Bloomberg, along with Ropes & Gray and Simmons & Simmons, will be sharing their knowledge and expertise on legal topics that startups should be considering such as intellectual property, fundraising basics, NDAs, employment law and more.

Calling all Founders, start-ups and potential entrepreneurs!

As part of the series, highly experienced advisor Mandy Perry will be delivering a session on how to employ people in the UK.

Date: Wednesday 9 February 2022

Time: 1:00pm-3:00pm (GMT)

Location: Zoom


The session will feature:

This session is set up as an introduction to (and what you should be doing to comply with!) the key data protection legislation that covers the EU and the UK: the “GDPR”. Starting with some background to what was originally only an EU regulation, we will also discuss what Brexit has meant for data protection in the UK, walk through some key definitions and principles to be aware of, cover data transfers and rights of individuals, before touching on information security and data incident response. The session will also focus on what your companies should be doing now, what we think companies should be looking for post-2021 and other key topics we think you should be aware of.



Rob joined Ropes & Gray in 2015 and has a wide range of experience advising UK and international clients in respect of intellectual property and commercial law, with a particular emphasis on media, e-commerce, outsourcing, sponsorship, IT and marketing issues. In addition to advising on intellectual property, IT and data protection issues arising in corporate transactions, he also has particular experience assisting with global data protection and privacy issues, including advising on international data transfers and compliance with the EU data protection regime.

Robyn joined Ropes & Gray in 2021 and has experience acting for clients across a range of industries, particularly in relation to commercial, data and technology issues, previously spending a six month secondment with a leading consumer goods company.
