Ben Hooper


Ben helps clients understand their current and emerging regulatory risks, manage their response to a regulatory challenge, and think creatively about mitigating strategies. He has helped UK and US headquartered clients navigate regulatory investigations and reviews, with particular expertise in privacy regulation and the overlap between privacy and competition policy.
