Shehana Cameron-Perera is a senior associate in our digital economy transactions department
Shehana is a senior associate in Ashurst's digital economy transactions practice specialising in information law. She has extensive experience in advising global UK and international clients on all areas of data protection including complex data sharing and data transfer queries, data protection impact assessments, dealing with and responding to data subject requests and ICO complaints and drafting internal data protection policies.
Shehana has considerable in-house experience, working closely with in-house legal and compliance teams. She has previously undertaken secondments to an insurer and global broker, a secondment as Privacy Manager to a large financial institution client and a secondment to a payment service provider’s Global Privacy team. Her numerous secondments have given Shehana a real understanding of in-house priorities and exposure to a broad range of queries and strategic work streams that would ordinarily be handled in-house, requiring her to directly advise the business and senior stakeholders providing both technical legal expertise and pragmatic commercial advice.
Shehana holds the BCS Professional Qualification in Data Protection (formerly ISEB).
