Full Profile

Oscar is an Associate in the Technology and Media Team in our Sydney office and has been with the firm since 2018. He has specialised experience in the privacy space and has assisted in a number of cyber incidents providing legal advice to a variety of organisations ranging from international and ASX 200 companies to boutique businesses.

Oscar's guidance to clients with respect to the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth) helps to ensure that organisations are in full compliance with the Notifiable Data Breaches Scheme. His incident response management work allows clients to successfully navigate the complex regulatory framework.
