About me

My name is Judit Garrido Fontova. I am a lawyer specialised in data protection and information technology. In other words, I help companies, both start-ups and large international organisations, to comply with their legal obligations on privacy aiming to lead them to what they really need: an effective solution that is compatible with their business objectives. For this, I have experience working for several years with top-level companies in privacy and data protection projects, commercial technology contracts, e-commerce or digital marketing, among others.

Throughout my professional career, I have worked with clients in the following areas and sectors: technology, pharma (life sciences), retail and fintech, along with others.

I have held Senior Manager positions in Spain and the United Kingdom, two jurisdictions where I maintain a strong local network and provide advice on a recurring basis. At this moment I am based in Barcelona, ​​but my professional life has always been around different cities, such as Barcelona, ​​Madrid and London, where I have worked in international law firms providing local and international advice.

My goal is to solve the legal problems of my clients in an innovative and effective way. In this respect, I offer ad-hoc services, as well as continuous advice through a retainer.

I have published several articles on the Thomson Reuters (Legal Today) legal trends portal and in the local Catalan magazine Diarieljardi.cat, as well as in international media, including Mondaq.com and Computing.co.uk. Likewise, I am co-author of the Chapter on “Digital Health 2021” in Global Legal Group and of the “Memento Derecho de las Nuevas Tecnologías 2017-2018” (Lefebvre-El Derecho).

I am a member of the Barcelona Bar Association and registered as a practicing lawyer with the UK Solicitors Regulation Authority. I am also CIPP/E certified by the IAPP and I hold the Privacy Management Professional certification by One Trust.

I speak Spanish, Catalan and English, and I have Arabic language skills.
